Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing > Understanding Printer Drivers

Understanding Printer Drivers

Printer drivers are lines of code designed to help an operating system communicate with a specific printer. No two printer models are created equal: Some have two paper trays, while others have one; some are ink-jet, while others are laser; some are color and some black and white. Although there are generic printer drivers available, most printers have a driver program, designed specifically for that make and model. Panther installs all of the printer drivers onto your hard drive when you run the Panther installation program.

The drivers become available when you attach your printer and run the Printer Setup Utility. The good news is that with the release of Panther, the process of hooking up your printer, and being able to print, just became a lot easier.
