Guide to Activate AirPrint on Mac OS 10.6.5

Advertisements

AirPrint is a feature for compatible wireless printer on the Mac, but Apple withdrawn AirPrint support from Mac OS X 10.6.5 at the last moment, may be due to some patent problems. Thanks to Steven Troughton-Smith, who figured out how to activate AirPrint with latest Mac Update. Following are the DIY instructions to turn it back on, so you can enjoy wireless printing from all your compatible iDevices using iOS 4.2.

1). Download Mac OS X 10.6.5 (beta) build 10H542 from torrent or other file sharing sites. We need to extract three files.

/usr/libexec/cups/filter/urftopdf
/usr/share/cups/mime/apple.convs
/usr/share/cups/mime/apple.types

2). Copy the file urftopdf folder / usr / libexec / cups / filter / ;

3). Copy and replace apple.convs and apple.types files in the folder / usr / share / cups / mime / ;

Pro tip to access the /usr directory:

Launch the Terminal app and type

      • open -a Finder /usr/libexec/cups
      Pin It

      Have Something To Say ?

        i followed all the instructions so as to make AirPrint work.

        everything went smoothly UNTIL i had to print. my iPhone now sees the printer (which before it didn’t) but nothing is ever printed when i try to. to make it more complicated, the same thing now happens when i try to print from my iMac. it says “waiting for printer to become available” (which it is). if I revert everything to the original settings my printer works again. I’ve tried twice and same result

        I have an OKI DATA C3600 Color printer. On an iMac OS X 10.6.5… anyone has a suggestion?
