    Have you tried opening the app "Print Center" found here:

    Macintosh HD
    Applications
    Utilities
    Print Center

    and trying to add printer on whatever type of connection you are using?

    As with all SCSI devices, just fiddle with the daisy chain and terminator. The LaserWriter II was particularly sensetive to termination issues.

    Definitely listen to GeeYouEye... rarely even close to wrong... You know it can work with your computer since it has before, and I've seen your printer work on newer machines with 10.2.

    :cool:

    Don't worry about the Postscript.

    I have a LaserWriter (the first version), and it works fine with Mac OS 10.2.

    Because the Laserwriter doesn't have Ethernet, it is connected with Appletalk (serial) to a Supermac clone running 8.1, with the LaserWriter Bridge control panel. Like a chom it voiks!
