Printer Installation under Apple MAC OS X 10.5
Before installing a Kyocera Driver for MAC OSX, you have to make sure, which version of MAC OSX is used on your Apple Macintosh System, because for different OS versions, you need different Kyocera Installers Packages.
Do not use a Driver Packages that does not match your installed MAC OSX Version, otherwise you can run into big trouble.
First step to find the version of the MAC OSX Operating System is to click the Apple icon at the left side of your Finder Desktop, and then click on “About this Mac“.
To install a driver for this Apple Macintosh, you need the Kyocera Driver Installer for MAC OSX 10.5.3.
If MAC OSX 10.5.x is used, you have to choose the Kyocera Installer for MAC OSX 10.5 for the TaskAlpha devices!!! This is the newest driver and all other Kyocera Models are included in this Driver Installer Package.
Don’t use the model dependent Kyocera Installer for other devices, because you will run into a Rights Issue. The other Installers can not copy the PPD Files to the correct Folder. The needed right “Write” is missing.
Download the Kyocera MAC OSX Driver from the Website:
The HQX File will automatically expand, when you download the driver. Change the directory to your Download Folder, and start the installation by click on the Kyocera Installer. The following dialog will pop up.
Set up the Kyocera Printer / MFP as follow
1.) Protocol: Line Printer Daemon LPD
2.) Address: IP Address of the Kyocera Printer / MFP
3.) Queue: First logical Printer Queue in the Network Card of the Kyocera Device (lp1)
4.) Name: give your device a name
5.) Location: fill in the location of the Kyocera Printer / MFP
The CUPS System of MAC OSX will find the Kyocera Printer or MFP automatically and will install the PPD for the correct device, click “Add” to install the Kyocera Printer or MFP.
Only Postscript will be supported ( KPDL ). The device you would like to use must be set up in Fixed KPDL Mode. The Automatic Emulation Switch Mode AES ( KPDL AUTO ) can not be used. Otherwise the installation of the device will fail.
