INTRODUCTION
The PS3 Expansion Kit AR-PK6 allows the machine to be used as a PostScript-compatible printer.
PostScript compatibility makes it possible to use the machine not only as a printer in Windows, but also as a printer
for the Macintosh. Note that printing from the Macintosh is only possible via a network connection (parallel and USB
connections are not available on the Macintosh).
This manual explains how to install the PS printer driver that comes with the PS3 Expansion Kit (AR-PK6), and
provides information that must be added to the other operation manuals due to the installation of the AR-PK6. When
using the printer function, refer to this manual along with the manuals that come with the machine.

To use the machine as a PostScript-compatible printer for the Macintosh, the PPD file (PostScript printer description

PK6. Note that printing is only possible in a Macintosh environment via a network connection. Your Macintosh must
be connected to a network by means of an Ethernet port to use the machine as a printer (parallel and USB
connections are not available on the Macintosh).
The PS3 Expansion Kit AR-PK6 Software CD-ROM contains the following software.
PPD file
The PPD file for Macintosh is the file which a Macintosh computer refers to when using its LaserWriter printer
driver for printing.
Screen fonts
The Software CD-ROM contains the screen fonts for Macintosh. If you use the PPD file, install the screen fonts
as needed.

• Operating system: Mac OS 8.6 to 9.2.2, 10.1.5 and 10.2 to 10.2.8 (excluding 10.2.2), 10.3 to 10.3.3
• For other conditions such as CPU and RAM capacity, the requirements of the operating system must be
satisfied.
NOTES
