I’m trying to make use of the new Mac printer package deployment in the
iPrint 2.1 appliance, but I’m getting an error when trying to install
printers associated with the driver package.
All HP Printers, appropriate PPD assigned.
Uploaded HewlettPackardPrinterDrivers.pkg using iManager (it’s a 500MB
file) and associated it with the printers. This is the 3.1 version
(current) from Apple’s website, and the one HP directs me to use.
Mac iPrint client is v06.04.00
If the computer in question already has the above package installed,
the printer installs without issue.
If the computer does not have the package, and thus iPrint must
distribute it, the Mac generates the following error. I also noticed in
the error dialog that the long original file name is now truncated to a
windows format.
