HL1250 is an open-source printer driver for Ghostscript supporting 8 Brother printers. On Mac OS X, printing with HL1250 requires Ghostscript (an open-source PostScript interpreter), cups-o-matic (a CUPS filter script), and a foomatic PPD for each supported printer. All this may sound complicated, but rest assured, to print with HL1250 all you to need know is how to download and run the installer and set up your printer in Print Center. Just follow the easy instructions below. Installation Notes
