    This is the situation. 1 - iMac with my printer driver installed before the upgrade to Leopard, works fine after upgrade. 1 - iMac that has a fresh Leopard install, can't install driver because installer doesn't work for Leopard.

    All I need to know is how to copy printer drivers from one Mac to the other, both running Leopard. I know there is a folder in the "Library" for printers but I need to know what needs to be moved over to get things to work.

    Thanks in advance!

    Canada EH!!!
    You can use Migration Assistant to copy information (i.e. programs, settings, drivers, etc.) from your old mac to the new one. You can find it in the Utilities folder (click Applications, Utilities, Migration Assistant).

    I have not used it myself but it's worth a try.

    Printer drivers are stored in /Library/Printers, as far as I'm aware. You could try copying that directory across.

    Or if you can download the tiger package, and right click and show package contents, and find the drivers from the installer manually.

    Just suggestions.
