    Epson LQ-580 Dot Matrix Printer
    Hi all,
    I'm not the most tech-savvy person so would appreciate some help with an issue I have.
    I'm trying to find a driver for antique Epson LQ-580 dot matrix printer (it is still needed to print off multiple receipts etc.).
    Epson don't support it on Lion (which is what is being run) so does anybody have any suggestions where I can pick up a free (and safe) driver. I've looked at a few driver sites but am always a bit suspicious of these free websites.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have a look at this link and hope it helps. Epson say the drivers for Lion are in existence:-

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Hey thanks,

    I took a look but the driver for this model sadly wasn't covered.

    Could there be any third party providers out there????
