    I have a Macbook Pro 10.5, and the computer that is connected to the printer is a Dell with XP on it. My goal is to make it so I can print document from my Mac with out hooking it up to the macbook itself. I was successful with another printer hooked up to the same Dell Computer but I can't find the driver for my HP PSC 1315 All in One Printer... I tried downloading them from HPs website and if I got lucky and it did download I tried installing it and it said it was complete but It seem it did nothing.

    This question has been asked and answered too many times to count--and that was last week! Your printer is supported by the Linux Foundation's OpenPrinting project. You can find the driver here.

    I'm sure what is confusing you is that print drivers on OS X are different from drivers on Windows. Because there are two driver programming methods (APIs) - Carbon and CUPS. Carbon is the old, carryover from OS 9. Everyone except Brother has continued writing their drivers using Carbon. In Carbon, they get to specify which comm/connection protocol is enabled in the driver. The driver provided by HP is a Carbon, USB-only driver. To use the networking protocols, provided by CUPS in OS X, you need to use a CUPS driver. Gutenprint (included in OS X) is one example of free CUPS drivers. hpijs is the other family of CUPS drivers that supports HP printers. Get the 3-part hpijs from:

    download all three items, and run the ghostscript and the foomatic before installing the HPIJS driver. This allowed my Macbook OS X 10.5.8 to print wirelessly to a HP PSC 1315 ( I used the 1310, same series) which is connected to my Sony PC which is connected to a netgear router.

    getting scanning to work too

    I found a way to make scanning on the HP 1315 work on Mavericks, though it wasn't very easy.
    Basically I used the open source Linux drivers from HP itself together with SANE. It works very well.
    I wrote my complete notes on this wiki: SANE

    This process could be made simpler, though, mainly by having a mavericks package for HPLIP

    The above process can easily be mimmicked by more advanced users and developers to create a more convenient scanning app and sell it on the app store..
