Apple lanseaza Mac OS X 10.6.5 fara AirPrint pentru unii utilizatori


Aseara in jurul orei 0:00 Apple a lansat noua versiune 10.6.5 a Mac OS X, insa in ciuda asigurarii date de Steve Jobs ca AirPrint va functiona iata ca pentru unii aceasta optiune nu este disponibila in noua versiune a Mac OS X.  Aceasta disponibilitate sporadica ar putea avea legatura cu versiunea de iTunes instalata in calculator, adica pentru a folosit AirPrint fara probleme utilizatorii trebuie sa aiba iTunes 10.1 instalat in PC iar cei care nu au probabil vor trebui sa foloseasca metoda de mai jos pentru a activa AirPrint pe Mac OS X 10.6.5 :

  • cautati o versiune beta a Mac OS X, 10H542, e cea mai indicata si extrageti din ea urmatoarele fisiere :
    • /usr/libexec/cups/filter/urftopdf
    • /usr/share/cups/mime/apple.convs
    • /usr/share/cups/mime/apple.types
  • pentru a accesa acele fisiere exista 2 metode :
    • 1. tastati din aplicatia Terminal  open -a Finder /usr/libexec/cups.
    • 2. din Finder selectati meniul Go apoi Go to folder si introduceti locatia /usr/libexec/cups
  • copiati-le in Mac-ul vostru in exact aceleasi locatii peste cele existente;
  • mergeti in panoul Print & Fax preferences unde veti sterge si apoi readauga imprimanta;
  • in final mergeti in meniul “Sharing” si partajati imprimanta pe retea pentru a putea fi gasita de iDevice.

Daca urmati pasii acestia ar trebui sa aveti AirPrint activat pe Mac-ul vostru cu OS X 10.6.5.
