How can I print from my Mac on a HP M1319f network printer connected to my Macbook Pro?

Robin October 21, 2010

I run a Mac and a Macbook Pro on my home network. Both are set up for sharing. My HP M1319 printer is connected to the MBPro. Both are connected to my network router. Both computers are able to see and work together. The Mac can see the printer and sets it as default. However, I cannot get the printer to print anything sent from the Mac.

    do you have Bonjour Installed

    find a compatible driver that is network-capable
    try this driver

    some suggest Gutenprint driver

    Note the IP address of printer.

    On mac, the go to System Preferences > Sharing and enable the same option "Printer Sharing".
    Still at the same window, at the right portion of the Sharing preference pane, under the pair of boxes "Printers" and "Users", click on the plus (+) sign.
    This will bring me to the Add Printer pane which automatically retrieves the printer name and settings:
    Click the IP button (looks like a sphere) and enter the relevant information like so:

    Can you print files from your MBP where the printer is directly connected?

    It would also be helpfull to have more informations about the symptoms on the other Mac. Does it look like the files are being sent and printed and just "don't come out of the printer" or is there a yellow triangle/questionmark on the printer symbol?

    For now I can only think of Printer Sharing not being setup correctly (permissions not set correctly) or missing/wrong driver on one of the machines.
