    Just printed successfully from my Photosmart C4385. Why in the world did they disable this?

    Same printer here. Installed Hacktivator, it worked for one test print, perfectly, then I tried printing last night after Software Update prompted me to update my HP drivers, and now it won't print. Anyone else have this happen?

    It installs on a Mac and allows your iPad (running 4.2.1) to print to your network printers. See link in post #1.

    Theoretically this should work on any printer that has drivers for OS X.

    And I believe that it in fact does so in practice.

    Try deleting the printer object and re-adding it. I had to do that to initially get AirPrint to work. Maybe the updating of the drivers caused the printer object in OSX to be reset to not sharing.

    I implemented this on my Mac Mini 2.4Ghz C2D (which is on all the time)

    Canon:
    MP150 (connected via USB)

    HP
    Laserjet 6P
    Photosmart D7260

    My wish is that this would work without needing a Mac. The two HP printers I have are both network printers with static IP addresses (the 6P is using a parallel-to-ethernet adapter). Would be nice to be able to print directly to them without having this hack work around.

    I almost bought one of the newer HP ePrint printers, but once I read about how I needed to print to it (sending an email to the printer), I decided to check out other options. Really happy with this solution, but would like it to go one step further and print direct without needing a Mac.
