Installing HP PostScript Driver
Download a printer driver for Mac at the URL below:
In the linked site, choose your language and OS first.
In the list of drivers, click "Driver - Product Installation Software", download both "Mac HP Designjet Raster Driver" and "HP Designjet Mac PostScript Driver".
Graphic design applications, including Illustrator and Photoshop, are specifically designed to fit in the PostScript environment. Thus, the PostScript driver is preferable when you expect higher processing efficiency and printing quality, while the raster driver is preferable when you use the other applications including PowerPoint.
Open one of the downloaded installer (Here we assume the raster driver. You may install the other driver in the same way.), run "Mac OS X Designjet installer" and click "続ける(Continue)".
After the software license contract is displayed, click "続ける(Continue)". When the screen asks if you agree to the termis of the license agreement, click "同意する(Agree)".

Click "インストール(Install)", then the installation starts soon.
Finally, click "OK" to finish installation.
Adding a Printer
After completion of installation of the printer driver, add a printer.
Click "システム環境設定(Setting System Environment)", "プリンタとスキャナ(Printer & Scanner)", and "+" button.
Click "IP" tab in "プリンタの追加(Add printers)" and set "プロトコル(Protocol)" to "HP Jetdirect Socket". You can designate any "アドレス(Address)" such as "192.168.10.12."
