    What we’ve found is something called Gutenprint which uses CUPS to create a workaround that allows you to print using your older printers. It’s not something we’ve tested ourselves due to the lack of Mac based machine but hopefully it proves useful for Mac users wanting to keep their printer working without needing to downgrade.
