    Can anyone help me here?

    Since Leopard I cannot print.

    I can't print to paper or even print something to PDF.

    I've tried doing both in every possible application.

    I do however have a new Lexmark printer and Leopard did not have the driver but it came with mac / pc drivers so I installed them. Could this have caused my problem?

    Not sure what to do. Any suggestions would be well appreciated.

    Cheers, Tom

    I'm in the same boat. No v 10.5 drivers for my HP 5610. Looking to buy a new one that is compatible. Not the best solution, but the anticipated date for a new driver for my particular printer is unknown...according to HP Mac :apple: Tech Support.

    I just got a hold of one of the minions at Lexmark. No Leopard drivers until January 2008!

    My printer is a month old and I can't return it because as Lexmark claims, "It's not our fault, it's your computers."

    How long have these people had to develop a driver? Ridiculous.

    I'm going to go to PC World and pretend it's broken and go from there.

    Oh and I will NEVER buy Lexmark again.

    Went to PC World, I was out of the return period (by five days!) so they wouldn't let me. :mad:

    Needed a printer so bought an HP D2460. Plug n' play, supported by Leopard out-of-the-box. :)

    Purchased it as it was listed on the apple site.

    Works great.

    5 week old Lexmark will likely collect dust till the driver comes out in late January. But even then, why would I need two printers? I'll be leaving it in the attic.

    Lexmark sucks. Never again.
