Is there any way that I can run Permissions Repair without including the printer drivers? If you are running I sent the error logs to Apple. Now all is working again. This update does not appear in Software Update in I think it is Lion only. This update IS inteneded for It also appeared in Software Update on my 3 machines. I have same problem as Joinerm. I believe the problem may not be in the PPDs, it may be in the new versions of the HP extensions that the 2. I solved the problem by replacing these extensions from a recent backup.
So it may be these files that are not good with snow leopard. I am in China on business and it has just appeared in my Software Update. I have no idea why it should be 2 days later. Thanks to your warning, I have not installed it. I think they need to adjust their priorities.
I hope this update addresses the permissions issues. Since going to mountain lion, using my Deskjet series has been a problem. Apple supplied the latest drivers etc, and the OS wants to repair permissions before it will print.

Been on Apples website describing the problem, and maybe this update will solve it. I am a bit confused with the printer updates. For example, when I installed my new printer drivers I used HP's disc so all the specific printer features were installed. All works fine, then software update downloaded the hp driver updates 2.
Still fine, however, 2. I was wondering if apple basis the need for the update on the specific printer used, or is the update a manual download only, when you already have a previous update installed. No print servers. I used to use the HP OEM drivers, but happened to try the OS X drivers on a nuke and pave reinstall in connection with Lion and found that everything was simpler, worked just as well, etc. My HP is an OfficeJet , so maybe it is different for some of the fancier printers.
I disagree. I've been using only HP Printers with Macs since and have never had a problem with them. Not true I have never had any problems? The problem may be using older Mac OS or outdated drivers and software.

I would agree with the other two replies here. I've used HP photosmart printers for a while now without any issues. The only problem i've run into was native AirPrint support with an older printer, but that wasn't HP's fault, or my fault, it just happened to be an older model without wifi directly built into the printer, and to get it to work ivi a airport, i needed the third party AirPrint enabler for os x. I have bought the photosmart as a replacement for the c that died after four years, and haven't had a bit of issues, even worked out of the box with my iPhone.
The efax feature is nice too and why i stuck with HP i needed a fax solution for the occasional fax i may need to send and receive. To those saying you've had no issues with your printers, that's great for you. But try sharing the printers between Macs and PCs and then you'll have a different opinion.

Also, to those saying it's because of using old drivers or hardware, that's not true. This has happened to my clients, friends and family with brand new HP computers with the latest drivers from HP. I've seen this going on for years and years with scores of people. Sometimes the HP printers do work fine, but all too often I've seen extremely frustrated people have issues with HP printers on the Macs whether dealing with scanning, sharing or just trying to look at their cryptic support on their website.
Been supporting 27 HP laser printers in 5 different locations schools for over 10 years, in a mixed PC, Mac, and Linux environment without any major issues. My fellow employees Six in the same mixed environments at 21 locations have not reported any major software issues, only hardware issues where consumer units are purchased or the printers are kept way too long. That said, several of the locations are running HP n and n models, which have required only drum replacements or roller kits during that 10 year period. Gggvt, it sounds like they were probably all hooked up to a printer server in that environment.
Once again, have seen very spotty results for many years with many people. I cringe when I see an HP nowadays because of this. I see apologists in here that keep trying to infer it's because the printers are "old", etc. Usually, the main problem is the multi-function printers that don't play nice. I've been working with a brand new HP printer and brand new Mac Mini for a client and that HP consisently stops allowing access to its scanner. The problem occurred for a previous IT person as well, so it's not just me. On the other hand, with brands, I never have these hassles I hate HP printers.
This software does work as of Dec 24, When adding the printer, you must scroll and find the HP software. The installation process is not very good, but it does work for me with Lion HP has made some poor business decisions. Maybe Meg Whitman can help fix things there.
Sadly, it"s too late for me. I'm a Brother customer now. I bought the same Brother you did Put back on my HP and low and behold, magic. My Brother, my Brother is in the trash, 2nd Brother I have had trouble with.
Never again will Brother be in my set ups at home or my business. HP as always done amazing things for me and the support makes Brother seem like a beginner at what they try to do Now it goes to HP. I had the same problem. I've thought the printer was dead.
The only thing you must to keep is the PPDs file. Click on the HP printer and click on "—" to leave it blank. Then, install the original driver for your printer, MAC OS X will recognize your printer just go again in System Preference after the installation and you will see your printer.
Hope this gonna help you. My HP Laserjet does not work properly and has not been working properly since You want me to buys a new printer? Ok then, well it's not gonna be an HP printer this time. Ironically enough, the only way I am able to get my HP LJ to work is by using the drivers for the Go figure.a12.pm.dnsrd.com/the-complet-investor.php

What does this update do? Half a gig download, MB install and the software in Applications was not changed. How can drivers take up MB? The new HP Laserjet driver is awful. It is very slow when you want to print - it takes almost a minute or two to do copying before trying to print.
