I have an Epson Stylus Photo R290 (I'm in NZ - elsewhere, I think this is the R280 or R285), about three years old. It has performed fine... up until now. I recently installed a new hard drive (I'm on an iMac, running Leopard), and everything worked fine until I set about fixing permissions on my user identity. Now, my printer prints its test pages fine, but as soon as I try to print anything at all from any program (including Epson's own Easy Print program), the printer immediately pauses, and refuses to resume. The error message that flashes up briefly between "resume" and "pause" is this... can't open `/private/var/spool/cups/tmp/4c0c36c5d579f'. I have restarted, reconnected and rebooted everything in every possible order, and reloaded all operating systems and drivers. I have deleted the printer and re-added it in System Prefs. It may be I wasn't holding my tongue right, or I missed a permutation/combination of the above, or Venus wasn't in alignment with Neptune. I have a feeling it may be a permissions screw-up relating to the cups/tmp file - but I have no idea where to find the folder or directory these files are kept in. Nothing related to cups, spool or anything shows up in Finder. Any help would be appreciated - it's driving me nuts. Hey, I would even appreciate it if someone could tell me they were having the same problem!
