Known Mac OS X compatible drivers from 10.0 through 10.11

Known Mac OS X compatible drivers from 10.0 through 10.11

Note: As of the writing of this article, Apple has only updated their printer drivers through November 3, 2015. 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. Look at open source drivers below to see if you might find something newer. Note, I have just discovered Apple's own software update is not always up to date on compatibility, and this means at least some drivers are available in 10.11 that were available in 10.10, even though they have not been updated for 10.11. 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.

Old links to need to be updated to

This page has direct links to many of the printer vendors Mac OS X information page, as well as solutions to changes in the Mac OS X operating system that aren't supported by the printer vendors, yet supported by open source programmers. Note, this list is by no means comprehensive. If you find a printer that supports Mac OS X not listed here, please e-mail me from my guestbook page.
