How to install HP LaserJet 1100 on Mac OSX Mavericks

I recently upgraded to Mavericks OSX and forgot how I installed the HP LaserJet 1100 printer I have.

As I trawled the internet I found it was not supported by HP or Apple but I was sure I had it installed before on my Mac.


I came across the GIMP-Print CUPS Printers drivers that you can install on your Mac.

You will need to change the security on “System Preferences” Under “Security and Privacy

and change the “Allow Apps downloaded from…” to “Anywhere

You may need to click on the padlock in the corner left hand side to change the settings.

    I’m sorry if I’m being obtuse, but how exactly did you install this? I’m on Mavericks and the print dialog says that it’s connecting to the printer, but then just goes idle again and doesn’t print. Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Hi. I’m still having issues getting this to install. Do you have anyother suggestions? I’ve got my 1100 connected directly to a Dell desktop running XP (yes, I know that’s not supported by MS either), which I have been using as a print server. Please, ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated! The 1100 has a lot of life left in it, and the print cartiages for my deskjet are making me go broke. Thanks in advance!
