Got a printer but vendor has no OS X drivers?
Consider: Gutenprint and Gimp-Print for Mac OS X,
"High quality printer drivers for Canon, Epson, Lexmark, and PCL printers."

These free print drivers are built on CUPS, the standards-based, open source printing system developed by Apple and used in OS X.

But be careful! It's possible to render your Mac's printing system non-functional, so play it safe and clone your Mac hard-drive first, so you can can get back to a working system, if you get yourself into trouble.

Software to clone
(create a complete, bootable backup of) your hard-drive (before experimenting)
