Hello Jürgen and Ariel,

Thanks for your help. I appreciate you want to solve this MacOS issue when
there is more time.

Ariel, the suggested code works :) I am now trying to find a way to send a
byte stream to a printer. Could XPrinterPropertySet.setBinarySetup be used
for this purpose maybe? The service only seems to
support graphical data, am I right?
