Ricoh Aficio Sp C220n Printer Driver Download For Mac Install Update
This may be the wrong place to post this, but I can't seem to find a more appropriate place. When sending prints to the printer they hang in the print queue on the Mac with the status "Printing - Copying print data". The Windows server is configured with LPR services enabled. Printer is added on the Mac using LPD. Same configuration we use on several dozen successfully printing HP printers. The behavior is consistant across Apple hardware. The behavior is consistant across various Mac OS X versions I can print directly to the printer without issue usng IP printing.
I can print to the Windows print server with the generic postscript driver no problem. I can print to the Windows print server from Window 7 without issue. If I leave the job in the print queue long enough minutes the job will evenutually complete. I've tried vaious versions of the Windows drivers on the print server to see if they have any impact, and they all produce the same result. They did offer to sell me an annual network service contract to help figure out why it doesn't work, but would not gaurentee that they would solve the issue.
If anyone can provide some asisstance in configuring this correctly your assistance would be appreciated. If anyone wants to spread the word that Ricoh is not an Apple friendly company and should be avoided If there is some sort of configuration option on the Mac that will disable whatever this software is, that's going to be the first step.
I doubt the Windows print share has a Language Monitor associated but see if it does. On the ports tab of the printers properties, verify the Enable bidirectional If the control is greyed out there is no language monitor associated with the print driver. The next thing to do would be to gather network traffic and determine if there are latencies with the network responses and syncs. The LPD service will never send vendor specific data back to the client. It does not support printer status other than on or off.
Thanks for posting in the forum. I expect better from the Windows community than to pass the buck. That's the stance Ricoh took with the issue. I used to change the printer, was easier in the end: This does look like what is happening. The Ricoh driver looks like it is requesting supply status from the printer and the Windows server doesn't now how to respond to that request. I don't see any options in the printer setup to allow for this to be disabled. I'm looking into how the PPD for the device might be altered to stop the driver from making the request.
Unfortunately, I don't have much experience modifying PPDs. Do you know if there is any way to change the setup on the Windows server that would allow it to give the Ricoh driver the information it is requesting from the printer? I'll have to look into that more if you think it might have some effect on the problem. Network traffic is good. No latencies or response issues. From what I can tell from the logs, the driver just keeps asking for this information and when it doesn't get it, just keeps asking over and over again.

Tuesday, August 27, 8: For anyone who comes across this post. The solution I found can be found on the site: Friday, October 11, The first thing you need to do is install these three printer drivers; foomatic-rip Now when you go to print a document, you need to select properties and change the printer model from PS into PXL.
