I have an Epson 1290 with Mac OS X drivers.
Sad thing is while printing Apple Works files it does not print Freehand 10 files (error message every time I try it.) which stops me using OS X.
Has anyone else found this?
I have a 740... its old and slow.. but it still works. OS X supports it. Im happy. I grabed it when I got my Rev-A iMac. the 740 was the only USB printer on the market at that time. OS 10.0.4 didnt suport it.. which I was not too happy about.. but 10.1 works fine.
I dont need 9 to use my 740 in OS X. You just need to set up your printer prefrences. When you try to print... make sure that your printer is turned on. You will be promted with some kind of Printer set up Utillity. Then seclect USB as your interface.. give it a second and it will find the drivers that go with your 740. Then select it. You have to have your printer turned on or it wont register. I didnt know that the first time I tryed to get it to work. My Mac just sat there and didnt give me a list of printers to choose from. I dont remember what the utility is called.... but Im sure if it doesnt come up atomaticly, you can poke arround and find it. I would do it right now.. but im at work on a ... WinBox
When I print some thing in 10.1.1... the OS X drivers kick in. When I have classic running... and I print from a Classic app. The OS 9 drivers run.
