Iprint client with Intel Macs

I'm having trouble with installing the iPrint client on a new intel mac. I
can download and install the client just fine, but when I try to add a
printer it tells me that I need to install the client. This would be after
i've closed the brower and reopened it. I also tried to reboot the computer
to see if that would help but it doesn't. I have no problems with this on
the macs that run PowerPC processors. We only have one intel mac so we
can't check to see if it's just a problem with the computer or intel macs
and the iprint client. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Sherry Kohn

My guess is that the iPrint Mac client is yet to be re-compiled as
Intel-native.

In Safari, non Intel-native plugins will no longer run unless you
right-click the Safari application and set it to run in Rosetta. When set to
run in Rosetta, it is using the PPC code path instead on the Intel x86. Of
course, Safari will now be slower becasue it is running in PPC emulation
mode.

Thanks! This workaround works fine and Safari is not as slow as I expected.
Waiting for the next release.
