Package Description

Release Date: December 30, 2006

The m2300w package contains universal binaries that will work on either PowerPC or Intel Macs. m2300w is an open-source printer driver for Ghostscript supporting the 2300W and 2400W Konica Minolta color laser printers. On Mac OS X Jaguar and later, printing with m2300w requires Foomatic-RIP (a CUPS filter script) and Ghostscript (an open-source PostScript interpreter), and a foomatic PPD for each supported printer. The foomatic PPDs are included in the installation package.
