Kyocera KM-1635 and Mac osx 10.6.8

Hi, I'm trying to use a Kyocera KM-1635 with mac osx 10.6.6. It seems that with the foo2oak driver it is possible to print with this printer.
I followed the manual http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/INSTALL.osx up to the point 5. And then I'm lost. I can not understand further the istructions for the Kyocera.
Is there a particular procedure I have to follow in order to install correctly the kyocera 1635?
Thanks in advance. Bye.
Andrea

Thank you very much. I think that yesterday I correctly made the installation that you descibe . Now if I undertand I have to follow the point 6, but I'm lost in the choose of 6a or 6b. Do I have to browse the http://localhost:631 and follow the CUPS instructions? Is the 6a only for the HP LaserJet 1020?
Thank you again. Ciao
Andrea

Dear, rickrich I follow the istructions in http://localhost:631/.
I added a new printer. I selected the kyocera printer which is seen be the mac and I chose the driver recommended: foomatic/foo2oak-z1. If I try to print a test page it seems that the print is sent but the printer does not print anything. What am I doing wrong? Is there something more to do?
This is what is shown:

Kyocera_KM-1635 (Idle, Accepting Jobs, Not Shared)

Description: Kyocera KM-1635
Location:
Driver: Kyocera KM-1635 Foomatic/foo2oak-z1 (recommended) (color, 2-sided printing)
Connection: usb://Kyocera/KM-1635?serial=PAE6934905
Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=na_letter_8.5x11in sides=one-sided

Thank you again
Andrea

$ cd foo2zjs
$ foo2oak-wrapper -z1 -p9 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
$ ls -l xxx.prn
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 74784 2009-10-13 08:08 xxx.prn

Here is the answer:

host-001:~ berlinghiero$ cd foo2zjs

host-001:foo2zjs berlinghiero$ foo2oak-wrapper -z1 -p9 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
sed: 1: "1i\t<< /Install {\t 0 ...": command i expects \ followed by text

host-001:foo2zjs berlinghiero$ ls -l xxx.prn
-rw-r--r-- 1 berlinghiero staff 320 30 Lug 15:41 xxx.prn

host-001:foo2zjs berlinghiero$ lp -oraw xxx.prn
l'id richiesto รจ Kyocera_KM-1635-1258 (1 file)

host-001:foo2zjs berlinghiero$

Any suggestions?
Thanks Andrea

I installed once again with:
$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ cd foo2zjs

Compile:
$ make

Install driver, foomatic XML files, PPD files, and extra files:
$ sudo make install

Then I went to the step 6a or 6b (We tried both).
But nothing to do. The printer doesn't print anything.
If I write the command foo2zjs-pstops in the shell I obtain the following message
$ foo2zjs-pstops
/usr/bin/foo2zjs-pstops: line 129: gsed: command not found
Suggestions?
Thanks Andrea

Ok, now we got something more. Thanks. We are able to print the test print by cups server. Yet, we are able to print from, for example, microsoft word, great. But if you try to print a pdf with adobe acrobat the printer stops with the attention indicator lighted and does not print any more even from word. I have to switch off and then on the printer to print again.
An other thing is that the duplex doesn't work.
Thanks for your time.

Did you switch Duplex on? See:

I think to do it: I switch to long side in the default setting in
http://localhost:631. I'll check better and I'll check which application prints or not. Bye.
