It works!! Do I need to post a video?


I believe you. But it would be better if you can post a video because I wanna share this news with my friends in Korea who wouldn't believe nothing until I show them a proof.

Works great...

Yes, and what printer are you using? Does it require Printer Sharing to be turned on? I have it on, with an HP Photosmart C309a, and it's a non-starter.

My guess: It works for those who had previous 10.6.5 builds installed. I updated from 10H568 to the officially released build 10H574 (didn't get around to play with 10H571 and 10H574 previously) and printing works for my Brother 7010L shared through my iMac on an iPad with 4.2 GM. There are, however, people who obviously don't get it to work, and from how it sounds, they went straight from 10.6.4 to the build released today.

Either way: I find it a pity that Apple would remove the functionality, since it worked okay, and it's not like anyone would _really_ require it for anything professional. Wherever you've got access to a _shared_ printer, you also have a computer that's sharing the printer and you could simply mail the document to be printed to an account that you can access from said computer. Yeah it's the workaround that was being used before, but removing AirPrint-for-shared-printers is certainly not in the same league as demoting the screen-orientation button on the iPads, which is really confusing if you got used to having that as a hardware option for months...

That makes no sense. No one is forcing you to print. But some - and I am one - need hard copy for their job. I wish I didn't but I do. So I am really looking forward to printing wirelessly from my iPad.

Mine can! I had to go into my MacBook pro, turn on Printer Sharing despite my HP color laser being hooked into my airport via USB, and my iPad with 4.2 GM printed fine.. I swear to god.. Now, this 10.6.5 is not the one apple released, it's the delta release from a couple weeks back.

My wife is always printing recipes and coupons from her iPad running iOS 4.2GM... Ther are plenty of reasons to send something to the printer from an iPhone or iPad. How about boarding passes, move tickets, etc?

DO NOT INSTALL THIS FILE, wait for a real link to the combo updater.

EDIT: The link in my post was NOT the link to the file, I intentionally removed part of it so it didn't work. Lundy, do you really think I'm that stupid? Come on, you could at least check to see if that was the link or not before having a complete hissy over something that was perfectly safe.

Probably a printer that natively supports ePrint, and therefore Air Print:

Handy if you need to reinstall the update, faster if you are upgrading multiple machines.

ESPN360 appears to be borked in Safari for me since the update. Works in Firefix though.

Printer was already selected - I cannot even select the printer, and your video did not show this. How is your printer connected to your network? Mine is via ethernet to Time Capsule...

From the horse's mouth:

What printers are ePrint enabled?
Currently there are three (3) printer models that support ePrint
D110 series for North America customers
B110 series for Asia and Europe customers
B210 series for customers worldwide
HP will announce additional printers that support ePrint in the coming months.

Buh? And in this scenario what, exactly, are you to do when someone wants a document from you? Have them copy it from your iPad? Lend them the iPad? Email them a screenshot? This isn't a big deal given we don't currently have this capability, but it is a good thing to have, and I'm surprised someone would be excited to find this feature might not be available at the current time.

My network is setup the same as yours except I connect my printer directly to my TimeCapsule via usb.

Also, once you set up a printer, your device remembers it - that's why my printer was already selected.

So I am curious to see if they restricted it to those newer printer models from HP or directly connected to a Airport Extreme or Express.

Shared printing would have been nice but its not that big a deal. Just more of my OCD coming to light.

I am running the 10.6.5 mini update that was released Oct 14 (AIR) -- it has been removed from the iOS Developer site..

I have been running each version of 4.2 beta and now the GM.

I can print fine to an old HP 5700 attached to my Airport Extreme -- from the iPads and 4,2 iPhones.


I think I'll wait until the air clears on AirPrint.


What I really want is Video AirPlay -- I suspect that will require an AppleTV update.

Try Sys Prefs: delete the printer, then add it back in.

If that doesn't work, plug the printer into an Airport Extreme or Express.

Then repeat above.

Thanks! By the way, just thought I'd say that for all the iPhone videos out there, it's nice to see someone who washes their hands before doing a video. You could be an Apple hand model!
post #66 of 111
makes no sense to keep the computer on, just so you can print from an ipad or iphone, you might as well, just go to the mac and print from there! Isn't anyone else feeling the same way?

I am a bit tired of apple forcing the mac as a middle route, having to keep it open to stream to apple tv, open to print from ios devices, what the c. is that about? Just let apple tv stream from any itunes library on the nas. And get printers to update their firmware to support airprint. How hard is it for hp to issue a few firmware updates for airprint?

So I am not terribly disappointed with this, if I have to have the mac open, I might as well go there and print from there.

Like i said, it's cumbersome, it takes up lots of energy and time to constantly use the mac as the middle man for printing and streaming.

Are you using the 1o.6.5 mini update posted on the iOS site Mid October (AIR) -- r the just released 10.6.5 update.

I am using the mini update and 4.2 GM and it works fine!

I think you only need the Mac to be on when you add the printer -- for a printer on your Airport.

I think the Airport gets the drivers from the Mac at setup time.

Grrr... Mail 4.4 boots out the Letterbox plugin. I know it'll likely be just a few days before there's an update, but it begs the bigger question: Why do we still need a plugin to view our email windows side-by-side? Apple's own MoblieMe has this feature. Why not their desktop software?!?

I've ran the combo updater in safe mode twice. Everything went fine with no sign of a problem. Each time when I check "About this Mac" it shows version 10.6.4 installed.

What do I do next? Should I try software update?

FWIW, my system has been trouble free and I ran disk repair prior to the installation attempt.

Thanks,

Bill

If you used the link from earlier in this forum thread then it doesn't work. Wait until you can download the real one from the apple announcement page.

That's exactly what I did. It did download as the 10.6.5 package as well.

Thank you for the heads up! Hope I haven't corrupted my system.

Try the auto update. If that didn't work then go to /Library/Updates and look for the 10.6.5 update file somewhere there (maybe within a subfolder) and double click it. Apple support taught me this trick few years ago.
post #78 of 111
That is the exact same fake link which downloads a fake update which either does nothing to change the system version or renders the system unbootable.

this is how apple downloads address normally start with

h**p://swscn.apple.com

I can view the downloads catalog page and no 10.6.5 update delta or combo currently appears and at the time of this post nothing on apples download pages either.

Yeah, just email them the document that you were going to print out.
