Printix maintains a global driver store with Windows and macOS print drivers. When users start to use Printix Client, it will automatically upload print drivers and put them in your Printix driver store. If there is no dedicated print driver for a particular printer, then an appropriate Universal print driver may be used.
Printix Client for Mac uses Apple’s Generic PostScript Printer and Generic PCL Printer if there is no dedicated or Universal print driver.
You may wish to add a print driver to your Printix driver store to deal with these scenarios:
- Newly released printer
The printer is just released and therefore the print driver is not among the print drivers in the driver store.
- Selected print driver lacks features
The selected print driver (perhaps a universal/generic print driver) does not fully support the features of the printer.
- Selected print driver lacks language support
The selected print driver does not support the language required. Some Asian countries for example may require special print driver packages for language support.
- No print driver was selected for the printer
If the printer does not support PostScript, PCL6 or PCL5, then a Universal print driver is not available, and you have to use a dedicated print driver from the printer vendor.
