Diagnose and repair printer and printing problems.

Overview

Print Therapy is the only utility in the world designed to diagnose and repair problems that can occur with the Mac OS X printing system. These problems include, but are not limited to, the inability to open the Print & Fax System Preference pane, inabillity to add printers, disappearing print jobs, corrupted preference files, and inability to create PDF files. Print Therapy also includes some useful tools for deleting extra printer drivers, installing or deleting PPD files, deleting old spool files, backing up and restoring the printing system, and resetting the printing system

Print Therapy 7.x allows the user to do the following:

  • Backup and restore the printing system
  • Verify and recreate the root user
  • Verify and recreate the lp user
  • Verify and recreate the lp group
  • Verify and repair the printing system permissions
  • Verify and repair the home user Library directories
  • Reset the printing system
  • Delete CUPS spool files
  • Verify and repair the /private/tmp directory
  • Stop, start, or restart the cupsd process
  • Replace the cupsd.conf file
  • Delete hidden temporary files
  • Delete all printing preferences
  • Delete the pre-installed drivers
  • View the CUPS access_log file
  • View the CUPS error_log file
  • View the CUPS page_log file

What's new in Print Therapy

Version 7.0.4 SLE:
  • This version adds support for Mac OS X 10.6.8.
  • The process of gathering permission data prior to permission repairs is now much faster.
  • PPDs are now listed in alphabetical order in the PPD Inspection list regardless of name case and population of the PPD Inspection list is now much faster.
  • Switching between PPD directories in the PPD Inspection tab no longer clears the Inspection list. Instead, the list can be refreshed manually.
  • Printer driver data is now gathered much faster.

Looks like no lion updates and this has become abandon-ware. No Lion Updates ever!

Now currently 3 operating systems behind.

10.7 Lion is the least of their worries with ML and Mavericks ahead of them. They've completely lost their window of opportunity 3 times here.

Obvious that they've gone. Abandon ship...

This is off topic, unless you've a printing problem like I had beginning with snow leopard. My problem with an epson printer came down to apple's installed glutenprint [sp?] driver for the printer as far as I can tell. After installing epson's own driver, the OS still wouldn't recognize it until I used print utility to deactivate the printer and then reactivate it at which time epson's own driver was recognized and printing was back to normal.

-- The "Requirements" section should be changed to reflect that this version REQUIRES Mac OS X 10.6.x "Snow Leopard".

Um, I got my license within 30 minutes of paying for the upgrade. I am in the same timezone, and also I did put my old vers.6 license in the PayPal notes... Have a little sympathy for these folks, they may not be in your time zone and we all have to sleep sometime. The only other issue I have is that PT7 will not run on my 32-bit only Mac Mini Core Duo... but I think the dev can fix that by re-targetting the build for 32 and 64-bit Intel. The new version DOES work great on my MBP.. It looks to be a great update! Just the 32-bit issue... doh.

Downloads incorrect (version v6.0.7, not 7.0.0) which is incompatible with Snow Leopard.

Well I just bought the 6 to 7 upgrade because this program has saved my printing bacon more time then I can count. I am sure glad they went to 64bit for snow Leopard on Version 7. I one thing I disagree with is there antiquated license scheme is SLOW once you pay for it. Why in the world does FixAmac take over 24 hours to email a person the license? No other shareware program I have come across doesn't take that long.

Print Therapy fixed my problem. I use an HP LaserJet P1006. I use it both in OS X and Win XP through VMWare Fusion on my MacBook. Looks like Fusion (or XP...) doesn't "free" the printer when closed. So couldn't print in OS X, though printer was visible in PrefPane. Could print from my wife's iMac though. I ran Print Therapy (after carefully reading online docs). Everthing is OK now. I've registered the software. Thanks to the developer.

When do we get a UNIX tool to run these commands remotely (or schedule via cron/launchd)? :) Don Montalvo, NYC
