HP Printers Not Supported in Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard, OS X v10.7 Lion, OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion, or OS X v10.9 Mavericks

  • PrintPrint


We are sorry to inform you that Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard, OS X v10.7 Lion, OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion, and OS X v10.9 Mavericks support is not available for your HP printer. Therefore, your printer will not work with these operating systems.
If you use any of these Mac versions on your computer, consider upgrading to a newer printer that supports Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks. The majority of HP printers on the market support these operating systems. Click here for information on which HP printers support Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lioin, and Mavericks.
Installing older HP drivers and software on a Mac running these operating systems might create conflicts.
Included in Snow Leopard are third party Gutenprint drivers that provide basic print functionality. Drivers might also be available for Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks. Click here to obtain the drivers. Gutenprint is a collection of open source printer software, including PostScript Printer Description files (PPDs), that is part of Mac OS X v10.6. It was formerly known as Gimp-Print. When Mac OS X v10.6 sets up the printer, it tries to locate the PPD file for your printer. If it cannot find the PPD file, you can use the Gutenprint PPD file.
Please note that Gutenprint drivers are not supported by HP or Apple. For more information about printers supported with Gutenprint drivers, click here .
