We need Terminal here!
Authored by: akt on Nov 30, '01 10:10:42PM
I don't know how relevant this is any more (since Epson released a bunch of new drivers), but I tried to do this for my 875 DCS (they provided a driver for the 875 DC -- so close, and yet so far). Here are the command lines. Before you get to them you need to copy the plugin to be mangled into it's own directory (e.g. cd /Library/Printers/Epson; cp -r SC740.plugin SC666.plugin; -- if your unsupported printer is the SC666). Then cd to the new directory (cd SC666.plugin) and execute the following two lines fgrep -l SC740 `find . -type f` > fileswith666.txt
perl -i.install -pe "s/SC740/SC666/" `cat fileswith666.txt`
Those are backticks before/after the "find" and "cat" commands. Perl needs to be installed, as is pointed out in the posts that follow. Anyone with ideas for my non-constant-length printer name, which causes problems in the binary files, please reply to this note!
