Samsung ML1210 and Mac OS X

Since moving to my mac I have had problems getting my Samsung ML1210 Laser Printer to work correctly. I followed the instructions at and got it printing but it was always missing off the top of the page. On searching around I found that I wasn’t the only person with this problem and if I downgraded my Foomatic-RIP to an older version things worked fine. For more information on this see and the key things is to get the release of Foomatic-RIP from the 30th Jan 2008.

I’ve reported this bug to the team the supports Foomatic so maybe there will be a fix in future versions.

  1. Thanks for the info.

    I have just installed OS X Lion, and I had to use the version of Foomatic that you suggest to get the margins on my Samsung ML1210 in the right place.

  2. Hi Ian.

    I’m trying to get my ML-1520 printer working under OSX Lion. Have been having real problems as the website is offline. Any change that you can post the foomatic-rip-2008-01-30.dmg file that you mention in the post? or send me a copy, as I’m getting desperate.
