Plotting from OSX to an OCE 9400

Anonymous
Not applicable
Oce has been rumored to have an upcoming driver for MAC OSX for over a year now.
Does anyone know how to get this to work?
My thought was to run a print server under OS9 and spool the prints there to the OCE 9400.
There seems to be no Gimp-Print driver for this OCE Model.
Under Classic the old way was to run MACPlot from the workstations to the OCE.
Thoughts anyone?

I do have "Plotting" info for Oce plotters on http://tr.graphisoftus.com/

"Printing" however is another issue (as you have reported).

I have a 9300, about the same less the scanner. The local rep was going to give me a postscript card for $250 (to cover some upgrade that was required) which would allow it to print. We put it in but it was very fussy, and I never could get reliable printing, so I pulled it out and plot... which works great, except GS still seems to not be able to get it to collate sheets in AC8.1... it did before however. When I would print I saw no difference, except it was slower. If a new driver comes out, and works, please post it... thanks
