Archived - Mac OS X 10.3: Included PPDs for PostScript printers

Mac OS X 10.3 Panther installs PostScript Printer Description (PPD) files that you can use with many Apple LaserWriter and third-party PostScript printers. This document includes a list of included PPDs.
This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
The Mac OS X print architecture works with many Apple and third-party PostScript printers, specifically those that have these two characteristics:

  • Are PostScript Level 2 or 3 printers
  • Use PPD files to describe the set of features available for a specific PostScript printer or printer family


A PPD file typically describes a printer's features: paper-handling capabilities, the number of paper trays and their capacity, available paper sizes, and so forth. Even if your printer's PPD isn't installed, you can still use the Generic PPD to print documents.

Printer manufacturers create the PPD files for their printers. Mac OS X 10.3 includes them as a convenience to you. A list of PPDs for Apple, Brother, Hewlett-Packard, Lexmark, and Xerox printers appears below.

For information on inkjet printers, see "Mac OS X 10.3: Raster (Inkjet) Printer Drivers Included".

Location of PPD files on Mac OS X 10.3 Install Discs

English (EN) PPDs are installed as part of the Essentials.pkg on the Mac OS X 10.3 Install Disc 1. PPDs for other languages are installed from the Mac OS X 10.3 Install Disc 2.

Some printer features not available?

Bundled PPDs may not offer every feature of a printer, such as sheet feeders or built-in fax machines. If your printer has a feature that is not available, contact the printer manufacturer for more information regarding the use of that feature. In the case of the LaserWriter 16_600 PS Fax, for example, Apple does not include the built-in fax feature when that PPD is used with Mac OS X.


Included PPD files

This list is subject to change without notification. There may be PPD files included with Mac OS X 10.3 that are not included with Mac OS X 10.2 or earlier, and PPD files that are included with Mac OS X 10.2 but not Mac OS X 10.3. You may wish to check with your printer manufacturer for a later PPD file version.

Some PPD files are not completely localized for the languages listed, but still work with them.

For a list of language codes, see "Knowledge Base: Language Codes Used".

Tip: For Mac OS X 10.2 PPD files, see "Mac OS X 10.2: Included PPDs and Use of PostScript Printers."
