    someone please come to my aid...
    the epson driver for my Stylus Photo 785EXP is useless - I can only print 1 page of anything then i have to RESTART TO PRINT AGAIN!!! LOL
    Its too hard to stay in 10.0.2 with an issue like this. I've tried gimp-print (i think thats the name (from versiontracker) it works well enough for my many e-mails, but not good enough for other stuff (photoshop)

    Any Ideas?

    Now onto scanning - oh never mind - Umax is not supported by VueScan - neither is Artek - so I'm SOL - or just endless reboots into 9 then back to X then back to 9..... unless there is something I don't knwo about - PLEASE - I hope.

    Do a software update, first. See if that helps you out. Good luck!

    Do you mean 10.0.2, or 10.2? There's a BIG difference...

    ...So why not upgrade? Print Center in 10.2 is awesome, I had no trouble hooking up my new printer, and I netowrked it to my PC upstairs, and it's on the wireless interent so my laptop gets it too, UPGRADE if you can..

    10.0.2 is beta software you get what you get. Upgrade it and be done with it.

    sorry, i mean 10.2.1 and it still sux

    the epson driver is useless, gimp print is better, but neither come close to os9.2.2

    scanning is even worse
