Package description

Release Date: October 30, 2002

HL1250 is an open-source printer driver for Ghostscript supporting 8 Brother printers. On Mac OS X, printing with HL1250 requires Ghostscript (an open-source PostScript interpreter), cups-o-matic (a CUPS filter script), and a foomatic PPD for each supported printer. All this may sound complicated, but rest assured, to print with HL1250 all you to need know is how to download and run the installer and set up your printer in Print Center. Just follow the easy instructions below.

Installation Notes

  • The cups-o-matic filter included in this package is the forerunner of the Foomatic-RIP filter. No benefit will be gained by installing the latest Foomatic-RIP filter.

Printer Set Up Instructions

To add a USB printer, Tiger (OS X 10.4.x) users should open the Printer Setup Utility and click on the Add icon at the top of the Printer List window. A new window will open. In that window, click the Default Browser icon at the top left. Highlight your printer in the section below. Use the "Print Using" pop-up menu near the bottom of the window to select the correct PPD for your printer and click Add.

Jaguar (OS X 10.2.x) and Panther (OS X 10.3.x) users should open Print Center (Jaguar) or Printer Setup Utility (Panther), hold down the Option key, and click the Add Printer button in the Print Center toolbar. Within the setup sheet, choose Advanced from the top popup menu; then in the "Device:" popup menu select your printer by name (it should be the last item in the menu list). Finally, select the correct PPD from the model browser and click Add.
