    I have a HP LaserJet 3200 all-in-one printer that is connected to a desktop PC. I have two other laptops connected wirelessly to the network and both are able to print with no hassle.

    I recently got a MBP running Leopard 10.5.2 and I am having trouble connecting to the printer to print. I was able to share/connect to files between MBP and other computers but not printer.

    I followed the guide found here. But while I was able to connect and print, it printed a bunch of garbage text.

    So I am not sure what to do here? Any help?

    Thanks in advance!

    If youve got it to print anything thats a good sign that a connection has been made. i have an HP DeskJet connected to my PC and sometimes it prints garbled text. pulling the plug from the PC and the wall (and reconnecting obviously) usually fixes it. try that.

    Used the GIMP-Print Driver for it and and it fixed the problem!

    Thanks for your help!
