Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Sharp Print Driver Roll-out Schedule

Sharp’s current Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite drivers are compatible with the new Max OS X 10.11 El Capitan operating system that is launching soon. Officially the 10.11.x drivers will be rolled out in a few different batches starting in mid-November and ending in mid January. If you’re worried about your current drivers not functions, don’t be. The 10.10 drivers will work just fine in the meantime.

 

Here is a quick reference for downloading the drivers along with an instructional video to get them installed.

  1. The 10.10 will not work on 10.11.1 ­čÖü

    And the release date for “MX-2610N/3110N/3610N” could not be complied with….

    • It should work. Did you follow my installation instructions on the print drivers page?

      Do you have to enter codes to make copies? It could be that you haven’t entered the code into your print driver.

  2. Well, seems like Sharp isn’t able to comply to its own timeline. We’re in 2016 and no trace of the drivers for the MX-2615n.

  3. I agree the Sharp MX-3640n 10.10 drivers are not fully compatible with OS X 10.11.

    My business uses user codes to print and there are no options to insert a code within the 10.10 driver/software configuration on OS X 10.11.

  4. The driver for MX-4101N isn’t compatible either. I’ve complained several times in the past about this issue and each time I get told that it is compatible. The printer works on everyone’s computers except for the 10.11’s in the building I manage, please help me.

    • You might try downloading the driver package for the MX-4140N or MX-4070N and see if the 4101 is listed in the models of that package. These are newer models so they take priority when updating existing drivers.

    • I’m not sure to be honest, that model is 3 generations old. You can always use a generic PCL driver in Mac OSX to print to machines without post script installed.

  5. Looking for a driver for a sharp 2640n with my Os X 10.11.6

    • I do not have any release dates for 10.12

      In the past the older drivers have worked for the most part. I wish I had a better answer.

  6. I down loaded the MX-2615n driver for Mac OS 10.11 from Sharps website and it does not work. The only way I could get the computer to print was to use the Generic PCL driver which means I can not print color or use all the functions. This is a real issue for our business because we have a lot of mac’s that need to print to the this device. I hope you can find a solution asap.

    • James, it sounds like you dont have the Post Script option in your machine which is required for proper Mac OS printing. The accessory is the MXPK11. I’d recommend getting in touch with whoever sold you that machine to get some pricing. Good luck!

    • This is something you have to purchase. I can get a product key for you if you’d like to purchase the PS kit. Let me know!

  7. sharp mx-2300n with serial n0: 7501279900 and postscript not enabled. how can i get the product key to activate the option so as to print using my mac 10.11?

    • You need to purchase a MX-PKX1. Contact your local Sharp dealer. It may be hard to come by because of the age of that machine. Alternatively you can print using a generic PCL driver that’s built into MAC OS, but it will only print in B&W.
