Post OS Lion Drivers?
Greetings all,
Just settled down to a test run on my iMac using the Mac side (I usually use XP & ED)

Discovered that nothing will print, from any program!
No updated drivers anywhere to be found either.

Any thoughts? any of you running OS lion and printing on a DS40?

We have been running Lion now for a few weeks and the only printers that have been tested are listed at the link below.

(I am not familiar with DNP BTW)

I mentioned the Lion driver issue with DNP a few months back, and they told me they would persue it. So I have now asked them again and told them they need to get it sorted.

They are usually pretty good, and I do not expect them to keep you guys waiting too much longer.

Sorry on their behalf for the delay.

In all fairness to ALL manufacturers. Lion has only just been released so I am surprised some manufacturers have even got it sorted yet.

Don't forget we have only just got some Windows 7 drivers etc and that's been out a while yet.

As someone said a while back, upgrade at your peril. Don't forget we are using specialist equipment not run of the mill inkjet printers sold by the 100,000

Thank you Stuart , yes it is new. The printers are not consumer electronics, and are therefore not so image conscious. The manufcaturers are usually pretty good and get it done in the end.

Ok, we have got the Lion driver tested, by an EPS member, all seems to be fine.

So just waiting for clearance from DNP and we can have it readied.
