The HP Universal Print Driver (UPD) is available for:

  • PCL5
    Print driver name: HP Universal Printing PCL5
  • PCL6
    Print driver name: HP Universal Printing PCL6
  • PostScript
    Print driver name: HP Universal Printing PS


In Printix Administrator, you can Add a new print driver configuration. The temporary printer’s Printer properties dialog will open automatically. Proceed to make the configuration:

  1. In the Printer properties dialog, select the Device Settings tab.
  2. Select Automatic Configuration and select Update Now. If you can not contact the printer, you can manually configure:
    • Installable Options.
    • Form to Tray Assignment.

  1. Select Device Type and select Color if it is a color printer. Otherwise, select Monochrome. If you leave it at Auto Detect, then whenever you open Printing preferences, it will also open a Validating the selected printer… dialog, which will take time and eventually fail.
  2. Select Apply.
  3. Optionally, open the Advanced tab and select Printing Defaults… to configure per-printer defaults.
  4. Select OK.
