    Hi Everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this!

    I have a Xerox Workcentre 24 networked through a router. My MBP and my mom's MB connect wirelessly and the printer installs fine on both.
    When we print, however, all that comes spitting out of the printer is either some wing dings or "PS-Adobe-3.0 %RBINumCopies: 1 %%Pages: (atend) %APL_DSC_Encoding: UTF8 %%Title: (then it runs off the page)

    I have tried an old driver from Xerox for it to see if it's a Postscript problem and that did nothing. This model printer is discontinued but still recently new. Not sure quite what's wrong.

    Please help!!
    Thanks

    I would bet dollars to donuts that you are trying to use Xerox's USB driver. You cannot use a USB driver for a networked printer (with rare exception). Search this forum for Gutenprint, CUPS, and LinuxPrinting.
