    Hi all --

    I'm a little frustrated, as there doesn't seem to be a solution. I'm trying to print to my Epson RX595 wirelessly, and everything I've read here says the Airport Express will -not- let me do so because of a Leopard-Epson error.

    Also, the printer itself is bluetooth ready, but the bluetooth adaptor Epson sells says "Print wirelessly from your Windows XP machine!"


    Argh!

    Thanks - MD

    Possible work around?

    I have an older Epson model 860 for which I use the gimp print driver because there is no longer driver support for the model. It works fine, and the only difference I have found is that I can no longer check ink levels from the computer - not a catastrophic loss.

    Is it possible that the gimp driver will also work with the RX595, and perhaps simply lose some advanced features like the ink level checker?

    Oh yeah, my Epson is connected to an Airport Express, so that's not an issue with gimp.
