I recently upgraded my iMac 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo to Snow Leopard. I then upgraded printer drivers for both my Epson RX595 and Epson R260. The 595 works fine; however, the 260 keeps giving me this message: Error:?Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/Filter/ failed. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone have an idea as to how I can resolve it? I'd appreciate any and all advice. Thank you.

Go to: Apple/System Preferences/Print & Fax/Print and reselect your printer in the Default printer: box near the bottom of the panel.

Then next in the same Print & Fax preference panel, select Open Print Queue, and Delete all the Jobs in the Status box and try printing something again.

Good luck

Had the same problem with OS X Tiger and an Epson tech told me that if I uploaded the old and the new software for the R260 that the printer would work. It was a while ago since I did this, but if you call the epson help line and ask the tech about this, he or she can take you through it. It worked with my printer and still does in Snow Leopard. The techs will initially tell you that Epson does not have software for Tiger or Leopard, but ask them about downloading the two siftware installs.
