Printer Drivers for Gestetner, Lanier, NRG, Savin, and Xerox Printers

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

While we don’t normally cover printer driver updates in the TidBITS Watchlist, this week’s releases from Apple merit inclusion, given the added support for new printers from Gestetner [1], Lanier [2], NRG [3], and Savin [4] (all of which are owned by Ricoh), as well as Xerox [5]. Apple also released updated drivers for Epson [6], Infotec [7], and Lexmark [8]. The downloads include the latest printer and scanner software for OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, and 10.7 Lion (it’s unclear why Apple doesn’t mention 10.11 El Capitan in that list). To see if OS X drivers are available for a particular printer or scanner (drivers should be installed automatically when the device is connected to your Mac), check out the full list of currently supported models found at this Apple Support Web page [9]. (Free, various sizes, 10.7+)
