  • Supported printers add a serial driver when connected. You can see them in terminal with ls /dev
    So disconnect printer check directory, connect and check again. If you have new files then these belong to the serial driver for the printer and you have to select that name. If nothing appears it might have no serial connection or requires a driver to be installed, also normally not required on mac.
