I want to print in color from an old HP Deskjet 5550 printer (17 years old and works without an issue, I heard).
- macOS offers Generic PCL Laser Printer for this device. It works (although it is not a laser printer), but only in black & white.
- The old individual driver on the HP website doesn't work with macOS 10.14
- Mac Printer Driver 5.1 (dated 20 September 2019 on HP website https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Deskjet-5500-Printer-series/71895/model/71897, dated 2017 on the Apple website https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1888?locale=en_US) doesn't contain a driver for this model, as seen in
/Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resourcesand in the dialogue when adding a new printer.
What are my options?
