Samsung Printer Drivers For Mac El Capitan

Universal Print Driver is compatible with samsung printer or multi-function printers (MFP) that use the PCL6 or PostScript languages, which means that different devices from different manufacturers can be accessed under one driver. Samsung Universal Print Driver is also compatible with macOS 11.0 or big sur, and Windows.

Samsung Printer Drivers For Mac El Capitan

Gimp-Print 4.2.7 is the last stable release of Gimp-Print version 4.2.x for Mac OS X; it includes 225 drivers supporting over 600 printers. The disk-image file includes an OS X installer package, an uninstaller package, plus illustrated documentation to easily guide you through the printer set-up process. (source code)

The predecessor to this software package (the original Print plugin for the GIMP) was first written by Michael Sweet of Easy Software Products and initially worked only as a print plugin to the GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). In the summer of 1999, I purchased an Epson Stylus Photo EX printer to feed my photography hobby. Finding no existing printer drivers, I adapted Mike's GIMP Print plugin to this six-color printer, and by the end of the year released version 3.0 of the Gimp-Print software, which was included in version 1.1 of the GIMP. The intention was for this to be the stable plugin in version 1.2 of the GIMP while development of the GIMP Print plugin continued for later release.

The Gimp-Print 4.2 release proved to be far more successful than we ever imagined. First of all, it was wonderfully stable from the outset; it was to be over 4 months before we needed to release an update. We added one major new feature shortly after release, support for the new Ghostscript driver architecture based on HP's HPIJS driver. This driver architecture allowed drivers to be compiled independently of Ghostscript (previously drivers had to be compiled into Ghostscript, a somewhat daunting project for end users). We continued to add more printers, dither algorithms, and so forth, all without breaking compatibility with the initial 4.2.0 release.

2002 was a very exciting year for Gimp-Print. Apple had released OS X for the Macintosh and was planning to rely on a lot of free/open source software for key functions of the OS. In particular from our standpoint, many vendors had not updated printer drivers for OS X, and many did not want to update their drivers for older printers. Since OS X had settled on CUPS as the core of its printing system from 10.2 on, and Gimp-Print had full support for CUPS, the fit was very obvious and Gimp-Print wound up becoming part of the OS X printing system. We were very busy that year preparing for release of Gimp-Print for OS X. This was done in 4.2.2, which we released almost 9 months after the initial 4.2.0 release (which says something about the stability of Gimp-Print 4.2). This release created a lot of excitement in the OS X world and for us, and we did three more releases in quick succession culminating with Gimp-Print 4.2.5 in early 2003.

In both cases I installed the newest version of the drivers and I can use the both scanners using Samsung/Canon tools, or Mac tools like Image Capture or printer/scanner from the settings-->printer/scanner.Both producers claim the drivers are TWAIN compatible.

It's not unusual for a small business to use multiple printers, each of which requires a different driver for the computer to communicate with the printer. If your business uses Mac computers, the drivers remain on the computer, even if the printer is no longer in use and disconnected. You can remove the printer from the computer's printer list, eliminating the confusion and clutter of extra printers on the list. The printer driver is not deleted when you remove the printer from the list; it continues to take up space on your hard drive. You need to manually remove the printer driver.

September 30, 2018 Some printers are coming in as incompatible with Mojave (10.14) on Apple Support Communities. Printer and scanner updates for Mojave posted.January 27, 2016 fixes two more printer driver links on Apple's download page to support El Capitan. I've indicated the latest release date of drivers that I could find. September 30, 2015, 10.11 was released, and older drivers may not work with it. Check with the manufacturer for your individual printer driver to see if they have a download for El Capitan, even if the download below was dated before El Capitan. They may have already tested the software with El Capitan. If they have, you may have to download the driver directly from the manufacturer. Such was the case with the Canon Pixma MX922. Its driver was from February 2015, and yet, labelled on Canon's website as El Capitan compatible. Downloading it direct from there, and it works. The scanner though will not appear on Image Capture anymore, and you have to download the Canon IJ drivers separately on 10.11 and 10.11.1, though this does not support the Automatic Document Feeder. 10.11.2 fixes this issue. When you Option click Add driver in Apple menu ->System Preferences -> Printers and Scanners to add drivers, you will sometimes get the printer or scanner that already is plugged in as a driver. In those instances, you can use the drivers that are old. I have started an Apple Support Communities thread to discuss this issue. As it happens I also joined Apple's bugreporter program and they informed me it was fixed with 10.11.2. As I had just upgraded to 10.11.3, I went to check if it had been fixed and now the document feeder reappears in Image Capture. As also mentioned in the thread, under some circumstances, you can download the driver from the manufacturer which is stated to be 10.11 compatible and install it from there, even if the driver is not newer than El Capitan's release. So always check both Apple and the manufacturer for updated drivers even if it is not available from Apple, and install its latest driver.Others have found going as far back as 10.9's scanner driver to help their Canon MP630. Unfortunately as long as printer and scanner developers fail to supply Apple with updates, you may or may not be in for a rude awakening trying to use your peripheral with El Capitan. Lastly, other issues with 10.11 over prior operating systems are covered on my Upgrade FAQ.
