— OS X Server print services don’t support non-PostScript USB printers. Does
— anyone know a workaround or third party solution?
Yeap. I use this one successfully : transform temporarily your Mac OS X Server… as a Mac OS X box 🙂
Just type in Terminal :
From Guillaume Gete on the server admin list
sudo mv /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist /System/Library/CoreServices/oldServerVersion.plist
Then log out and login to your server (you will see that it displays the Mac OS X login window ).
Now, just go to the Printer System preference and activate USB printer sharing.
Now, go back to Terminal and type :
sudo mv /System/Library/CoreServices/oldServerVersion.plist /System/Library/CoreServices/ServerVersion.plist
And logout and login again.
There you are, your USB printer is shared. However, you may not be able to use all the nifty functions of the server’s Print service.
