Mac OS X no options or support for Zebra LP-2844 label printer?
I am having some problems with snow leopard and my Zebra LP-2844 label printer. Its a real one not a eltron or anything. It even has a built in jetdirect type networking (print over network) connection in addition to USB.
I had this working fine in Ubuntu 9.10 useing a *.ppd type driver.
I have used couple of different drivers, It prints a test page fine, Mac OS installed it, seems to know what it is, but not in the correct paper size. Can't seem to find any advanced settings. The system settings control panel won't allow me to even add a different paper size, let alone change label speed or gap space between labels? (none of the settings usually available for a nice thermal label printer are there).
pardon my spelling, and I hope this is not viewed as a rant, I just find this frustrating and have not found out much of anything searching the internet. Since I went ahead and started migrating from my Ubuntu desktop machine over to a macbook pro A1278 I didn't expect this sort of problem.
Anyone with any ideas? let me know, any advice would be appreciated of course.
I can do a dual boot with Ubuntu and OSX but seems silly to me to spend money on this laptop only to go to the trouble of installing and useing a free operating system to get my shipping needs met.
Is this a good question?
