Installing Macintosh printing system software for direct connections (USB)
This section explains how to install the printing system software for Mac OS X v10.2 and later.
The Apple PostScript driver must be installed in order to use the PPD files. Use the Apple PostScript driver that came with your Macintosh computer.
To install the printing system software
||Connect a USB cable between the USB port on the printer and the USB port on the computer. Use a standard 2-meter (6.56-foot) USB cable.
||Insert the printer CD into the CD-ROM drive and run the installer.
Double-click the CD icon on the desktop.
||Double-click the Installer icon in the HP LaserJet Installer folder.
||Follow the instructions on the computer screen.|
For Mac OS X v10.2 and later: USB queues are created automatically when the printer is attached to the computer. However, the queue will use a generic PPD if the installer has not been run before the USB cable is connected. To change the queue PPD, open the Print Center or Printer Setup Utility, select the correct printer queue, and then click Show Info to open the Printer Info dialog box. In the pop-up menu, select Printer Model, and then, in the pop-up menu in which Generic is selected, select the correct PPD for the printer.
||Print a test page or a page from any software program to make sure that the software is correctly installed.
