Mac to Print via PCL

Art Post
I just ran across this today and thought I would share with everyone. Picked it up from spiceworks You can work around it by installing Gutenprint which will allow the Mac to Print via PCL.

ADP CDK laserstation 6100 question

Art Post
I'm a newbie with this stuff, however, I have a card dealer that has 15 of these printers. They look like Kyocera printers. I also see many compatibles being offered on the web. I also noticed that CDK has maintenance/supply programs where everything is included for a monthly price along with "x" amount of pages per month, and a cap for how many toners they can use in 12 months. Does anyone know the pricing from CDK or even better, how I can grab these clicks? ArtRead More...
I caught an alert with my gmail with the tariffs that are going into effect against China on July 6th (I believe). There were 818 items and then another 3something. One item I did see was copier parts and accessories. I can probably find the list and post for everyone. The tariff is going to be 25%. Has anyone heard from their manufacturers yet on this? How does this affect the Japanese manufacturers in China? Please reply if you know something!Read More...
