    Anyone know of a printer driver for Snow leopard for Lexmark Optra T610. Cannot find anything on Lexmark's website. Very frustrating to upgrde and lose printer even 5 weeks after OSX.6 was introduced.

    In my view this is Apple's fault as well as Lexmark. Apple for being secretive and lexmark for not caring about Macs.

    I think that printer is a postscript printer. The driver is built-in on OS X. You just need a PPD (postscript printer definition) file. Not necessarily OS version-specific (but might be because of print dialog plugins). Here's one PPD:

    You should also be able to print with a generic model choice.

    (One way to use a downloaded PPD is: for model in the Add printer dialog, choose Other - this give you a file selector box - choose the PPD.)
