StyleWriter 2400/2500 LT Printing Under X

Did anyone make a LocalTalk driver for the 2x00 StyleWriters for OS X?

I Googled around and found one that didn't support LocalTalk, and I know (and use) there's a LocalTalk ImageWriter II driver for X.

unnecessary

Use the serial connection... (I'm assuming you have a legacy box with XPostFacto)

cryptic instructions here:

Says its for Jaguar,
but it works, I've been using a StyleWriter II with my 9600 running Panther, it shares the printer using IP Printing, and its my only printer.

No complaints, but Canon stopped making my cartridge, so soon enough I'll have to search high and low for them, or do that refill thing... but I am not a meticulous person, so its a messy pain.

Anyway, good luck.

Nah. That's of no use to me.

I'm sticking the SW on my LAN of many Macs (http://hotline.kicks-ass.net/maclist.html) and I was hoping my G4 could print to it directly.

ASIP should enable TCP/IP printing to it, so that might be a workaround using the generic drivers.

Thanks anyway, though.
