How To Install Kyocera Print Drivers for MacOS

This guide is intended to help Mac users waste time by installing Kyocera print drivers manually. An easier and faster option is to use the Kyocera Auto Installer but if you insist see below.

Again the Kyocera Auto Installer performs each step automatically with one click.

How to steps

  1. Download the print drivers directly from Kyocera's website. If the Kyocera website is unavailable, you can download the latest Kyocera print drivers here.
  2. Extract the print drivers.
  3. Install the print drivers and create the print queue.

Step 1. Download OEM Print Drivers

Go to enter your Model Number and click on Technical Downloads.

Click on Drivers.

Kyocera Drivers

Kyocera bundles their print drivers into 1 file instead of individual files.

Step 2. Extract the Print Drivers and install the Package file

  1. Go to your Downloads folder, open the DMG file, run the Package file (You'll need the admin password to the computer).


The Kyocera Auto Installer does all of this with one click.

Step 3. Goto System Preferences & Create Print Queue

Go to System Preferences and click on Printers & Scanners.

Click on the + to create the print queue.

Select IP enter Address, Protocol Line Printer Daemon - LPD, enter print for Queue, enter a Name and select a model.


The Kyocera Auto Installer does this with 1 click.

It takes about 5 minutes for an above average user to install 1 print driver. Save yourself some time and just use the Ricoh Auto Installer.
