PostScript Printer Description Files (PPDs)

PPDs, in combination with the LaserWriter 8 driver, access the
printer features and allow the computer to communicate with the
printer. An installation program for the PPDs is provided on the
HP LaserJet 1200 Series CD.

Accessing the print driver

From the Apple menu, select the Chooser.

2

Click the LaserWriter icon.

Click the HP LaserJet 1200 Series icon.

Click Setup to make changes to the printer’s settings.

Note

If you use the LaserWriter 8 print driver, you will lose scanner
capabilities.

HP LaserJet Utility

HP LaserJet Utility allows control over features that are not
available in the driver. The illustrated screens make selecting
printer features from the Macintosh computer easier than ever.
Use the HP LaserJet Utility to do the following:

Name the printer, assign it to a zone on the network,
download files and fonts, and change most of the printer
settings. See the HP LaserJet Utility help.

From the computer, lock out functions on the printer to
prevent unauthorized access.
