Well, look no more!
Several manufactures provide 'ppd', or 'Postscript Printer Description' files for free.
A ppd file provides a generic description of how a printer works. While the functionality is rather limited, it will allow you to get your work done
1) Download the ppd file for your printer. Either search the company's web site, OR:
go to this web site:
select your printer model (I will use epl2120 for my example), and scroll down to the 'PPD-O-Matic' section.
Select the printer again from the pull down menu, and press 'Generate PPD file'
2) Save the file somewhere on your computer - /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/en.lproj
is the default location for English ppd files, but you can just put them in your home directory and select it later.
3) Open up the 'Print Center', which is located in:
4) Select 'Add Printer...' from the 'Printers' menu.
5) Either select 'Apple Talk' or 'LPR Printers using IP'.
6) From the 'Printer Model:' pop-up menu, select 'Other...'.
7) Navigate to the ppd file you downloaded.
Install Ppd Mac Os X
See the printer's documentation for instructions on installing the printer driver. See Mac OS X Help for instructions on how to set up a default printer. If you don't have a printer connected to the computer, create a virtual PostScript printer that you can set up as a default printer.
To create a virtual PostScript printer (Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6):
- In the Protocol pop-up menu, choose Line Printer Daemon - LPD.
- After Generic PostScript printer displays in the Print Using field, click Add.
- Close out of the Print & Fax preference or Quit System Preferences.
