Hack to get AirPrint back in OS X 10.6.5

Steven Troughton-Smith:

The files you need are:

If you migrate those from a 10.6.5 prerelease build (there seem to be many floating around torrent sites and file sharing sites – build 10H542 works; naturally I can’t link you to the files themselves, sorry!) to your machine you’re just one step away from having AirPrint working.

The final key thing is you have to remove and re-add your printer in the Print & Fax preferences pane. Once you do that (and share your printer in the Sharing preferences pane) it should show up on any iOS devices that support AirPrint.

Still don’t understand why Apple would remove this, but at least there is a work around…if you can get your hands on the beta files.
