I just installed tiger on my mac and want to get my 2200 firewire printer working. Any suggestions. I cannot find it when I add a printer


The only suggestion that I have is downloading the Epson driver and installing it until you eventually see it. I had to do it three or four times. It doesn't make any sense. My 2200 is hooked up via USB and when I first tried to install it, I saw the GIMP drivers but they disappeared in the ether. The good news is that my 2200 down that it is installed seems to be working great. Good luck, and sorry it took me a while to reply. I'm on the road and have limited access to a network.

I am having the same problem with an Epson 4000. Even installing the driver a number of time has not cured the problem. I did notice that the application parts of the driver were not made executable at the Unix level. I am goingto try and raise it with Epsn in the UK.

I diden't need any drivers from epson. Here's what I did:

1. Connect the printer via USB/Firewire
2. From the "Printer Setup Utility" select "Add"
3. In the printer browser window select the "More Printers..." button.
4. In the drop down menu at the top of the window, select "EPSON USB or EPSOON FIREWIRE" which ever you used.
5. Your printer should show up in the browser window, click it once, then using the "Page Setup" drop down button select "Sheet
Feeder - Borderless".
6. Select Add.

Let me know if this works for anyone.
