    Does anyone else share this problem? I
    love Epson printers for borderless
    quality prints. I currently use a Epson
    960 but cannot use Panther for borderless
    printing. I'm stuck at OS 10.2.4. I
    noticed Canon has drivers for most of the
    printers for 10.3 but Epson has zero. Any
    comments appreciated.

    I own the 960 so I can tell you what I know:

    Epson told me that the current driver found on their site (for 10.24) will work. Also, they say that the driver can be found on disc 3 of the four disc set that comes with the computer -- I'm assuming they mean the system software discs.

    Since I don't own Panther I don't know whether Panther comes on four CDs. (If it doesn't, then it must be the CD set that comes with a new Mac purchase. )

    Have you bought Panther, or only inquiring before upgrading?

    As an aside, I really like the 960 -- it does a great job on CDs & DVDs. But Epson has already discontinued the model. (My printer is only a month old.)

    Yes it does work on 10.2.4. I have a
    G 4 that it works great on. I use a
    iBook at home running Panther and
    it will not work for borderless printing.
    Have written Epson about this and I
    am waiting for a reply.
