EXPLANATION:

Officially launched from 1st October 2007, Apple Corp. released a new version of their OS X operating system known as OS X Leopard (version 10.5).

Epson is committed to supporting our valued customers by providing a range of drivers designed to allow our products to work in conjunction with OS X Leopard. Many of these drivers will be ready to use and available on the OS X Leopard CD/DVD and the remainder are available to download from our support site.

Models that were released after 1st October 2007 are supplied with a CD-ROM containing Leopard-compatible drivers and software, so they will work "out of the box".

Even if your product has been correctly detected and installed by OS X Leopard, please ensure that you are using the latest version of the driver from our website to ensure smooth and trouble-free operation. Please refer to the Drivers & Software section of the Epson Support website to obtain new drivers.

Please refer to the following tables to find out how your product will be supported.


Legend:

Inbox Drivers labelled Inbox are Epson drivers supplied with your operating system.

These drivers can be installed from the Mac OS X Install DVD (under Optional Installs > Printer Drivers > Epson Printer Drivers), and updated by using Apple's Software Update utility (some models will require you to visit the Apple website or use the Software Update tool for the driver to be available).
Download Download and install the latest Mac OS X - Intel driver from the Epson website, this is compatible with Mac OS X Leopard.
CD Drivers compatible with Mac OS X Leopard are available on the CD supplied with your product. The latest drivers can also be downloaded from the Epson website.
No Epson Mac OS X Leopard Support If your product is not listed, it is not supported in Mac OS X Leopard and no drivers are available. See below for more information.


Mac OS X Leopard comes with inbox drivers for most of the products labelled "Download" below. Whilst these inbox drivers are provided by Epson to Apple and are fully supported by Epson, most models will have an updated driver which is available from the Drivers & Software section of the Epson Support website. We recommend you download and install the latest driver instead of using the supplied inbox driver.

Scanners

Most Epson USB scanners have a driver on the Epson website or on the original software CD-ROM that can be used in Mac OS X Leopard. Dedicated Leopard drivers are dated October 2007 or later. Please visit the driver download page for your specific product to download the latest version of Epson Scan or TWAIN if available.

Note:

For products labelled Download - PowerPC, a driver is available under the Mac OS X - Power PC selection on the Drivers & Support page only. As a workaround you could try installing this driver but it may not run properly in 10.5 and is not supported.*


All scanners released after October 2007 come with compatible software and drivers on the CD-ROM.

No Epson Mac OS X Leopard Support

Some models will not be supported by Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) due to a change in technology and low demand. For older Epson printers, alternative third-party drivers (e.g. Gutenprint drivers) may be found and installed if an OS X Leopard driver is not available from either the Epson website or from within the OS X Leopard operating system. A list of included Gutenprint Install Package drivers can be found on the Apple Support website.

Notes Icon Note:

Epson Europe neither advocates nor supports this solution.


For very old printer models, a Leopard driver is not available and therefore the product cannot be used. EPSON Status Monitor is not provided with third-party drivers and an ink level monitoring feature will not be available in most if not all, third-party drivers (such as Gutenprint drivers or CUPS). Therefore ink level and status monitoring is unlikely to be available.

For products that rely on EPSON Status Monitor (e.g. Stylus Color 480SXU, Color 580SXU) this is a significant problem and thus we only recommend using your product on specified supported operating systems where full driver support is available.
