Driver configuration steps

These instructions will show you how to uninstall the current driver, reinstall a different driver and configure the driver's duplex and finishing features.




Delete the existing queue pointing to the Lexmark X954


Download and run the cleanup tool. See article ID#Removing Lexmark Files from Mac 10.12.x, 10.11.x, 10.8.x, 10.7.x, 10.6.x, 10.5.x, and 10.4.x OS for information on removing all Lexmark files from your Mac computer.

Note: The cleanup tool does not delete the print queue; hence, the printer driver needs to be deleted manually on the computer.


Manually remove the Lexmark printer driver by navigating to System Preferences from Finder > then select Print & Fax or Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners > select the Lexmark printer from the list, then click the minus (-) sign button to delete the printer. In this sample screen shot below, the button is outlined in red.
