[cups.general] MAC OSX PRINTING

Not at an OSX machine at the moment, but the version of CUPS on OSX
(after 10.3.something) includes Gimp-Print which has loads of drivers,
most of which aren't *native* OSX ones as CUPS can utilise lots of
*foreign* ppds. You should be able to find something for these 2, esp
the LaserJet (The generic LaserJet one will output something, although
you won't be able to adjust the individual settings for that model, like
paper trays).

Use the standard Printer Setup app, setup as normal and then *choose*
the driver from the list, rather than getting it to *Auto choose* it.
You should be able to get *something* to work.
