min12xxw is an open-source printer driver for Ghostscript supporting 5 Minolta PagePro laser printers.
On Mac OS X Jaguar and later, printing with min12xxw requires Ghostscript (an open-source PostScript interpreter) and Foomatic-RIP (a CUPS filter script), and a foomatic PPD for each supported printer.
Min12xxw is a pbm (portable bitmap) filter by Manuel Tobias Schiller for various Minolta PagePro W-series (win)printers. The driver basically works, but is new and reports are few; thus it should be considered experimental, and the purchase of a printer that relies upon this driver is not advisable.
The min12xxw installer for Mac OS X ncludes support for 5 printers:
· Minolta PagePro 1200W
· Minolta PagePro 1250W
· Minolta PagePro 1300W
· Minolta PagePro 1350W
· Minolta PagePro 1400W
To add a printer queue, open Print Center (Jaguar) or Printer Setup Utility (Panther), hold down the Option key, and click the Add Printer button in the Print Center toolbar.
Within the setup sheet, choose Advanced from the top popup menu; then in the "Device:" popup menu select your printer by name (it should be the last item in the menu list). Finally, select the correct PPD from the model browser and click Add.
Tiger users should open the Printer Setup Utility and click on the Add icon at the top of the Printer List window. A new window will open. In that window, click the Default Browser icon at the top left.
Highlight your printer in the section below. Use the "Print Using" pop-up menu near the bottom of the window to select the correct PPD for your printer and click Add.
