Use AirPrint on iOS with Lion Macs

Please see this post for Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).

To print from iOS devices to printers shared through Macs running Mac OS X 10.7 Lion download AirPrint Activator.
My article on how to print directly to PDFs which will get stored on your Mac’s desktop is still relevant for Lion Macs. Just activate AirPrint with the AirPrint Activator and skip the section The Preparation of this tutorial.

    AirPrintActivator is no longer working with Lion 10.7.2 and iOS5

    You should try the latest version posted by its developer on his site: http://netputing.com/2011/09/05/airprint-activator-v2-1b1/

    I haven’t tried it yet, but it might work.

    What is the benefit of an additional app if support is already in the OS?

    I go to the CUPS via http://localhost:631
    Select Administration and check”Allow printing from internet”

    That is all that is required.

    I’ve never tried this setting. Does it really allow you to print from iOS without further modifications?

    The CUPS method didn’t work for me. (OSX 10.7.5)

    Sorry to hear that. I’m using OS X 10.8 right now so I can’t replicate the error.
