    The printer driver doesn't show up in the list after upgrade to Mac OS 10.5 Leopard (from 10.4).

    The printer is OKI B4250 without PostScript. It uses the same drivers as B4350.

    The people at OKI here in Norway don't know much about Mac. On OKI's web pages there are only Windows drivers for these printers.

    Can anybody help with a printer driver for OKI B4250/B4350 that works with Leopard? It would be of help just to know definitely whether or not it exists.

    Fortunately, Okidata uses HP's PCL 5 & 6 as its page description language (when not using postscript). You can use generic PCL 5 or 6, a good example of which would be the HP Laserjet 5, Gutenprint driver on Leopard.

    What about for Snow Leopard.
    I have an Oki C5150 that is frozen in the snow of Snow Leopard.

    Yes it worked! Thanks a lot, gsahli. The Gutenprint driver 5.1.3 for HP Laserjet 5 did the trick.
