epson hack is back
Authored by: brodie on Oct 27, '01 07:54:48AM

the epson hack is back, i may be wayout with this, as i hacked before i tried- but i just downloaded the stylus 1280 driver release, hacked all the files within the package, changing 1280 to 1290, restarted and there it was, my1290 in the printer centre.
if anyone has the 1290 showing without need for a hack then i guess im wrong, and overzealous, but, if you cant see it in your print centre, then hack it to something similar.
a word of warning though, the 1280 is the same as the 1290 so i feared nothing, whereas others might want to wait. all the print profiles will be different, so although you may get your printer working, colorsync etc might be way out.

Go to EPSON's UK download library -

http://www.epson.co.uk/support/download/inkjet.htm

There you can find drivers for the 1290 with no hacking needed. Worked for me.

thank you Zingano. I dl-ed the 1280 driver via VersionTracker and read that someone had changed all 1280 instances to 1290 (plug-in and package contents) - I tried this but would always have Print Center crash on me. Now I have the official 1290 drivers! I'll test them out when I get home.

epson hack is back
Authored by: eddyer on Nov 28, '01 03:10:38PM

I have an Epson 850Ne and would like to employ the hack listed here: http://www.xdck.com/ss2500.html , but I can't even see the Epson drivers for the 900N (closest match I'd guess) in the Epson folder (library/printers/Epson/). I installed the additional printer drivers from the 10.1 update CD, but nothing changed even after a restart. I also can't find anything on the web to download (additional drivers, whatnot). Any ideas?
