    Hello all, im moving into a house with my fiancée and have got us a Time Capsule for use with Apple TV, Backup of the iMac and for printer and internet/ network sharing. but ive never actually got the 1600 to work with OS X so ive been saving docs and starting windows via boot camp to print.

    does anyone know if it will work or how i can get it to work?

    thanks!

    I don't have a Color LJ1600, but I've seen many report success with foo2zjs:
    Get ghostscript and foomatic here:
    http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/macosx/foomatic
    get foo2zjs here:
    http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Drivers/foo2zjs.shtml

    You need all three parts installed.
    Then you will need to go to the CUPS internal web page and set the option for color (default is black and white only, for some reason).
    http://localhost:631

    Read someone else's success story:
