How to install any printer drive no matter what processor you have.
What happened to me:
I purchased a kodak easyshare printer all in one 89.00 at wal-mart.
Went to install leopard drivers found out i needed a g4 1.5 ghz processor even worse the main app to install the files won't open without a 1.5 ghz processor so i found a workthrough for any mac user that used leopard assist or other means to install leopard.
1. download your driver for your printer
2. once the download is completed the disk image should auto mount and try to install quit the installer.
How to create a install anywhere installer.
1. right click the main installer for the printer driver.
2. select show package contents
3. open contents
4. open resources or a folder called installers depends on printer driver.
5. find all of the pkg files inside the installer and copy them to a temporary folder.
6. once copied to the temp folder...
7. simple time to edit the pkg.
8. Right click the Pkg inside the temporary folder
9. select show package contents.
10. go into folder named contents
11. go into folder named resources
Now delete these files
2. postflight = if present inside folder
3. postflightcheck = if present inside folder
close windows and run new pkg file
you will find your printer will install without any issues.
This also works with certain software titles to including aperture 1.
With the kodak printers all though they work in leopard there system specs are weird because there driver for 10.4 says a g3 800 mhz or faster while the leopard drivers say 1.25 ghz or faster and unless you pull the package apart and pull the packages folder out of it you cannot install it at all
