The previous post is the driver package that I downloaded from Epson. When I check my driver information in my printer dialog window it states that I am using Epson driver 8.02.

I tried deleting my printer from the printer list and readding it. When I did the software update installed driver verstion 8.0.2. Which does not work with L&A. My concern about moving to Gutenprint is it doesn't look like it supports the scanning features of the printer. All other programs are printing fine with 8.0.2

Big Casino,

My cheapo SX105 has a scan/copy button, and that works OK with Gutenprint as the driver - although I don't know whether the button is fussy about which driver you are using - or if it even needs to call the driver. If you need more control over scans you could try VueScan: - it has an enormous range of options, is regularly updated, and was great whenever my Canon Lide scanners got left behind by OS upgrades. The downside is it costs $39.95 . . .

If Gutenprint fails on some jobs (it does work with LA1.3.3) I suppose I will have to resort to switching drivers between Epson and Gutenprint:

System Preferences > Print and Fax > Options and Supplies > Driver > Select Printer Software > switch between the Epson driver (in my case Epson SX100 series) and Gutenprint

What a drag! Much better would be if BeLight could pinpoint the issue - because there does appear to be an issue - and resolve it in LA1.3.4 - or point it out to Epson and/or Apple if it appears to be on their watch :-)

Is this happening with any other printers?



OS X 10.6.1, LA1.3.3
