I recently trashed all printer preferences and reinstalled the HP 5MP print driver. OS 9.0.4 instructed me to configure the printer using my chooser, which I did. After restarting my Mac, I continue to get a message indicating that the printer needs to be configured in the chooser. I cannot get the message to go away, which means that a necessary file is absent or being deleted from the system folder. Can anybody else help determine why this is happening?
I have re-installed this same driver many times over the past few years troublefree, but OS9 seems to have some conflict recognizing the driver. I do not use my Mac for internet and the battery is fine. What file or files is the chooser writing? How can I verify that the chooser is making the update correctly? As a last ditch solution, is there any way to disable the OS chooser selection screen from appearing? I would appreciate any assistance.
