So, today MU 'reposted' this HP PRinter Driver 5.1 update, rebranding it with a December 27, 2018 date. This update was released by Apple on October 24, 2017 (2017, not 2018), making it over a year old. Don't believe me? Here's the link: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1888?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US So, does MU know this update is 14 months old and decided to repost it anyway with today's date? Or MU doesn't realize it is not a new update? Either way that doesn't say much about the MU internal process. I've seen many instances of updates on MU being reposted as 'new' but are really old updates, or updates that were released weeks or months before the posting date on MU, as if MU just got around to it or wasn't aware until much after the fact that an update was available. I know I'm not the only one who has noticed and commented on this. conversely, there are important updates that users should be notified about immediately that MU isn't even aware of. I think MU relies mainly on user posts to be alerted when new updates are available. And MU wonders why people don't pluck down money for the paid version of the MU software/service. The only rational explanation I can think of as to why MU reposts old updates as new, is the argument that it is a public service to make people aware of important updates, so it triggers or comes up on peoples watch list. But that is bogus, because for the people that already have the update, it's wasting their time to receive a notices about old updates, only to find they already have that update, and in most cases, like this one, received it AGES AGO (in software time). Now, it is true HP no longer provides drivers for out of the box anymore or directly online. If you purchase an HP in the last year or so, you are instructed to visit the HP website and are guided to download the terrible HP Easy Start software, which is nothing but a downloader stub. The problem with that is the Easy Start stub not only downloads the proper driver, but then proceeds to insist on installing tons of crap ware, 'customer feedback' software (aka telemetry spyware), and sign you up for the HP ink program, and so on. Good luck trying to locate the actual downloaded driver files only if you want to keep a copy for later offline install or backup. so, definitely, get a copy of the version 5.1 if you don't already have it, it will likely be the last from Apple. Fortunately, there hasn't been any radical change in the printer driver architecture under OSX / macOS, and at least for me, the drivers on this 5.1 update have worked on every release from Mavericks to Mojave. AVOID the HP Easy Start downloader if you can.

BE CAREFUL! I'm running OS X 10.7.5 and can no longer print PDFs. Microsoft Word and Open Office documents seem to print fine, but I'm stuck with PDFs, and that's a problem for me! This is my work computer too, so I'm struggling trying to downgrade to version 2.14 which worked fine. ver. 2.16.1 is going on a 20+ hour productivity killer for me. Should have left well enough alone when the update came out, and will not be making this mistake again. Lord willing I'm not looking at another 20 hours of tinkering here...

Since buying a WiFi Photosmart D110, printing has been a nightmare. I consistently have to restart the printer and or the MacBook Pro to get it to work, and then sometimes it still doesn't work. I usually resort to my old non-HP laser black & white out of frustration. I install all the updates as well as delete and re-add the printer queues. Sometimes it works, then when trying the second print job, oh the pain. The Wifi network recognizes the printer is there, but the printer usually can't start, and HP's software says it can't find the printer, despite its appearance on the network. The HP updates don't seem to be much help. I always install the most recent, hoping that it will cure this temperamental beast. I really wonder if HP really tests these things on real Macs.

Not sure if this is some sort of joke from HP - I can't laugh. The LaserJet 1022 has been listed as supported for 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 for years now. Fact is, it has never really worked. See HPs compatibility info: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01664444&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=439323#N2444 It prints one page and then spits out blank pages and all three lights start blinking. If it wasn't me who owned a 1022 this might be funny.

This driver leads to repeated interruption of printer connection if printers are connected to a wireless server, in my case Apple Airport Extreme. The issue affects at least Mountain Lion users, perhaps earlier OSs as well. Do not update, if possible. Waiting for a new update to solve the issue of this update. (:

Why does the HP Shortcut Manager Starter & HP Shortcut manager take up 100% of my CPU on wake-up? Terrible. Every time I re-start the computer I have to quit these useless apps. I need to write it into my shell script so I never see them. Better yet - why doesn't HP ever fix this. It has been an ongoing problem for years! Buy from Epson or Canon instead.

On 10.6.8 if your printer is broken do the following: In Finder navigate to Macintosh HD / Library / Printers / hp / PDEs. Right (control) click on 'hpPostScriptPDE.plugin' and 'Show Package Contents'. Then open the Contents folder and you will find a plugins folder. DELETE IT and your printer will work. https://discussions.apple.com/message/19259003?searchText=HP%20Printer%20Drivers%202.10#19259003

After downloading these, printing was broken on my LaserJet CP1515n, every time it would crash. I went to 'Print & Scan Preferences', clicked on the printer icon and got the message that 'The Printer Driver Was Installed Incorrectly, Repair?', clicking 'Yes' gave me the message that 'Permissions were being repaired' after which printing returned to normal. However, I then ran Permissions Repair in System Preferences, to see if it threw up a string of incorrect permissions, as it did with the last HP drivers from Apple, (which it did), and printing was broken again! Apple really need to get their HP drivers sorted, this is not good! Is there any way that I can run Permissions Repair without including the printer drivers?

If you are running 10.6, do not install this. It removed printing to all HP printers, from three of my machines, two iMacs and a Macbook Air, all running OS X 10.6.8. I sent the error logs to Apple. I had to use Pacifist to determine which files had been replaced by the update - in both the Library and System\Library - and restore these from backups. Now all is working again.

I hope this update addresses the permissions issues. Since going to mountain lion, using my Deskjet 4400 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 2.8, and updated the driver over the stock HP one. Still fine, however, 2.9 doesn't show up in software update. 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. Thanks

HP Printers and the Mac has always been very troublesome for the multitudes of people I've known to use them. Scanner functions will come and go with the tide, forget about printer sharing over wireless being consistent with some HP models (if it works at all) between Macs & PCs. I feel like HP treats Mac users as second class citizens and I refuse to buy their printer products because of it.

Hi Fellow MACers, so here's the latest as of 10/31/2011. I just purchased a MacBookPro O/S Lion and tried to add it to a small business network running Windows XP and an HP 1200n BusinessJet. After 4 or 5 hours on the phone with MyApple Support and the HP Business Support, the most recent HP printer drivers update for LION will not work for any HP printer with a model number lower than 2500. HP will no longer support any of their printers with a model number smaller than 2500 for LION. So, if HP decided not to support my small business, then I have decided not to support HP. I just purchased a new Brother MFC-J6710DW and tossed my HP in the garbage. The Brother is wireless and operates on both Windows XP and Lion O/S with full support for both systems. 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 had the same problem. I've thought the printer was dead. What I've done is to throw in the rubbish and uninstall every things who was associated with HP: Users/(your name)/Library/Printers and Macintosh HD/Library/Printers. The only thing you must to keep is the PPDs file. After this, go to System Preference/Print & Scan. 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). After this of course, you should never install again the Apple HP Printer Drivers. Hope this gonna help you.

My HP Laserjet 1022 does not work properly and has not been working properly since 10.6 now we are at 10.7 and I still don't have any working drivers for this otherwise fully functional and working machine. Apple / HP, whoever is organizing this: Please give the coder guys in korea a call and let them write decent drivers for the HP LJ 1022. Thanks! P.S.: Or is this intended? You want me to buys a new printer? Ok then, well it's not gonna be an HP printer this time.

The new HP Laserjet 1022 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. This is really bad because if your print job is big, it takes forever. The first when it happened I thought MacBook hung - and later only I realize that this is causing the problem.

Total, utter, worthless garbage! This update has made my HP printer utterly useless for anything other than 8x11.5 paper and #10 envelopes. I print to odd sized envelopes regularly and especially at Christmas time, and this update either prints AFTER the envelope has left the printer blank or refuses to print, claiming a paper error due to wrong size! I'm going to have to junk this piece of HP trash and never, ever buy another.

Thanks to this update, or at least the smaller version I downloaded via Apple Software Update, I can now scan again using my PSC 1210 with my MacBook running OS 10.6.4. And scan pretty well with some nice customizable features! HP dropped scanning for this series of all-in-ones starting with OS 10.5, and the previous version of software from Apple didn't have it either! So, thanks Apple! And thanks for nothing HP. My next printer or scanner will not be an HP!

I use 10.6.4 and HP LaserJet P1006 which is connected to Airport Express. Before this update I had problems using it- If you disconnect printer and reconnect it you couldn't use it via Airport Express but had to connect it via USB directly to Mac, print and then connect it to AE. It was really pain in the a**, but now with this update everything works great, no need to connect it directly to mac!

Printer are dirt cheap. They make their money selling frequently needed inks. You use the damn thing a few weeks now and then and it's thirsty. Refill time requires a bank loan.... I suspect it is easier to buy a new printer when the ink runs out and then you get the latest drivers and oodles of useless software designed to impress (but which you never use). This is my opinion.

Same issue. I've now installed it five times now. I suspect we all also have installed the "drivers" (i.e. big bloated crapware package - almost 500MB!) for a new HP All-In-One, or something similar. I haven't found a fix yet either, except for telling Software Update to ignore the update. I really wish Apple would release an update that included these drivers, so that this issue would stop and I could uninstall all that HP junk!

The Stapler/Stacker attachment still doesn't work on my HP LaserJet 4200. HP won't even take a bug report for the newly purchased stapler/stacker because it is attached to an out of warrantee printer. Never mind they were perfectly willing to sell me the stapler/stacker for the out of warranty printer, they just didn't explain that there would be no support attached for a printer the stapler/stacker lists as supported. By the way, it is a driver issue. This stapler/stacker works perfectly fine under WIndows. But on the mac, attempts to print multiple copies of a document each individually stapled results in all the copies being stapled together by a single staple.

I have tried to install this twice even and after a reboot, with a repair permissions for good measure, each try it never gets passed the final "Running Package Scripts" with about a minute to go. It sits there running 100% CPU with "kextd" as the culprit. Might just be my system but an FYI! I am running 10.6.2 on a MB Pro Core 2 Duo.
