Xerox Phaser 6125N working in mac os x

The Xerox Phaser 6125N is roughly 150 EUR cheaper as it is big friend the Phaser 6130N which is 'made for the mac'. Why it needs to come that expensive I don't know, marketing is properly the buzzword. Anyways, let's check out the little friend and try to get it running on a mac anyways ;-).

First lets us find a alternative model which does have supported mac os x drivers. Our friends at OpenPrinting suggested the Fuji Xerox Docuprint 525A. Let us download the Mac OS X drivers and install them (using the regular mac os x clicks, drops).

Now add yourself the printer and make sure to select the driver yourself 'FX DocuPrint C525 A-AP v1.7' is the one you are looking for.

Now print ... ehm every piece of paper needs to inserted via the manual feeder :-(. Luckaly there is also a way to get around that PITA. Mac OS X printing is proudly powered by CUPS which allows us to select the right options.

note: don't be scared when username/password are beeing asked during setup, just provide your login credentials


  1. Goto http://localhost:631/printers/ using your favorite webbrowser and press 'Set Printer Options' on your newly created printer

  2. Head to section called 'Options Installed' and change 'Optional Tray Module' to option '250 Sheet Feeder'

  3. Click 'Set Printer Options in same section'

  4. You will see the message 'Printer example.com has been configured successfully.'

  5. Some more settings are now available, head to http://localhost:631/printers/ again, press 'Set Printer Options' on your newly created printer again.

  6. Now goto section 'Basic' and change 'Paper Source' to 'Tray 1 (250 Sheets)'

  7. Click 'Set Printer Options in same section'

  8. You will see the message 'Printer example.com has been configured successfully.' and could close the page if you like



Print again ... hoara it now feches the pages from the tray :-)
