    I have an old HP Deskjet 2360 connected to an airport express.
    Problem is I can't print in colored. What's weird is that everything's working fine on Windows, including printer in color.

    Try to install 3rd party drivers. Look for and install:

    foomatic-rip-2008-01-30.dmg

    gplgs-8.61-ub.dmg

    hpijs-2.7.10-UB.dmg

    Then select the 3rd party driver now listed in your Printer preferences.

    That's great. To get ink levels status, you have to plug directly to the printer using its usb cable. But this isn't done often so it's no biggie.
