Guys I need help, and I need help fast.
I need to know how to uninstall my Gutenprint 5.2.6 and reinstall my Epson print driver software. I am having trouble with Gutenprint and I have no time to troubleshoot the problems I am having and I must revert back to my Epson print driver to finish an important client print project. Where can I find the Epson print driver on the internet that is compatible with my system software and printer? The Epson website is of no help for the driver I need so I need someone to provide me with a link to a driver. Thanks. Also please include the steps I would take to uninstall Gutenprint and install the Epson driver. I have tried to uninstall Gutenprint, but I am unable to utilize the Epson driver I have on my computer because it does not list my printer.
I am using a Mac running Mac OS X 10.5.8.
Printer: Epson Stylus Photo 1280
The direct link for the latest Gutenprint Uninstaller is <http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-print/files/Uninstaller%20-%20Mac%20OS%20X%20ONLY/1.2.8/gutenprint-uninstaller-1.2.8.dmg/download>. When you run the uninstaller it will appear that you are installing software. That is not the case. It is actually uninstalling the software. You should receive a confirmation notice at the end of the installation.
I cannot be of much help in giving you a link to the Epson driver. I believe that printer drivers from most manufacturers were included on the OS X 01.5 install disk.
I was able to successfully uninstall Gutenprint 5.2.8. But I am now unable to find a printer driver for my Epson Stylus Photo 1280. The closest printer driver available is Epson Stylus Photo Series, 1.3, and it has a very, very limited set of printing options when its selected. I used to have the Epson print driver.
When you bring up a print window, look for a disclosure triangle to the right of the printer name. Click on that and you should see the rest of the options.
Yes, I have done this several times and still the driver for my printer is not listed. I am missing the Epson Stylus Photo 1280 print driver. I am looking for it on the internet, but I am having no luck. I don't even see it on Epson's website. It lists drivers for my printer for Mac OS x 10.6 and Intel based Macs, but not system 10.5.8. The Epson website even has driver for very old Mac operating systems, but 10.5.8 is not there.
