    I'm getting very frustrated with this upgrade I did on Saturday. I am unable to print with my Epson Artison 800 since upgrading. I tried a new driver, but then later read somewhere that the drivers they say fix the issues are for a usb connection setup. Mine is set up wirelessly. I then read on an Epson forum that I would need this "Gutenprint 5.2.3." driver, as this is the one that is for the wireless setup. No luck!!
    I called the Apple folks, and they were of no help.
    I wish to hell that I'd never picked up the S/L disc and stuck it in my Imac.
    If anyone has any suggestions, I'd sure appreciate it.

    Perhaps wait until 10.6.2. I hope there will be a fix for your problem in this update.

    Don't get so excited about a printer driver. They'll come-I had to wait a bit
    for the new Canon drivers myself.

    You should have called Epson instead of Apple. Apple has nothing to do with Epson printer drivers.

    Same problem at work, can't print anymore.

    Everyone is quick to say this is not Apple's problem, but that didn't stop anyone here from ripping Vista to shreds. Snow Leopard is Apple's Vista.

    Well maybe the compatibility will be fixed in the next update of OS X, but otherwise you're right. Epson might have to concoct a new driver ;)

    I agree with you, but I'm thinking 10.6.2 will contain some significant fixes *fingers crossed*.

    Kinda silly to say wait for an update. How do you print in the meanwhile?

    Use the original disc to downgrade to Leopard – it a much better OS to be using if you're doing work on your mac. Maybe by next year SL won't be so sh!!ty

    Get the Leopard drivers off your Leopard disc. Might work. It did for me, but with Brother drivers.

    I contacted them via email, so hopefully they reply with some sort of advice.
    Earlier this year I had trouble setting up this printer- after installing all the software, I lost my wireless network settings on my Imac. I called Epson because I felt it was their issue that caused it. The idiots at Epson were of no help at all. I then called Apple, and the guy there walked me through getting my computer back to normal. I hope to christ I don't have to talk to another Epson "tech".
