Connect usb cable to old HP laser jet printer
I like to know if a old hp laserjet printer can work on the g4? Is it best to connect to USB or ethernet?
Is this a good question?
These printers deserve a second life being i have a Laesrjet 4 when i do not need color and it has lated almost 14 years old and worked despite being a curb find
You will also need CUPS+Glutenprint drivers
To se them up, go under Add printer like usual and select the Laserjet 5P
Then,select "Select printer software" by clicking the selected HP driver
Search for "HP Laserjet 5P-CUPS+Glutenprint" and that should work
You will also need a parell 1284 or 1394(the parrell will say this) to USB to use it on this mac in the end
you hook the end of the cable that goes in a computer to this adaptor and plug it in, you cannot use HP's drivers tough, use the cups and glutenprint ones
