Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar) Compatibility Reports

Jaguar Special Report Our Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar) Special Report, which consists of extensive troubleshooting insight and commentary from Macintosh industry figureheads including Microsoft and Tenon Intersystems, is available for Pro subscribers here.

HP All-in-One workaround Bob Monaghan has discovered a solution for eliminating previously reported problems with Hewlett Packard all-in-one imaging devices under Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar):

"If you upgrade from MacOS X 10.1.5 to 10.2 (with the HP PSC700 software installed), printing fails as expected, but scanning seems to work just fine. To print to the PSC750 Series, PSC900 series, and most OfficeJet seriesprinters, install the gimp-print 4.2.1 package, and select the pcl-900 driver. While I haven't tested any other printer, my PSC750 works fine. (Note: If you are using an older OfficeJet or PSC500 series, try the pcl-800 driver)

"Also, I happen to use the JetDirect 175x print server. To get it to work with the Print Center, hold down the option key, as you select 'add printer'. Select 'Advanced', choose "AppSocket/JetDirect" from the pulldown menu, enter in a printer name, and complete the 'socket://' entry with your jetdirect's IP address (ie: socket://, and select your printer model. (In this case, the HP/pcl-900 driver.) You are now printing via your ethernet connection."

Dreamweaver MX Shift-Return Adding to previous reports of problems running various components of Macromedia's MX suite under Jaguar, Alex Dearden notes an inability to properly handle shift-return keystrokes:

"When hitting shift-return on the keyboard the application enters a <p> tag instead of the correct <br> tag that it entered under 10.1.5. My guess is Apple is using shift-return for some internal process and that iss intercepting the call and sending a regular return to Dreamweaver. But there are no docs on how to turn this off in 10.2."
