Hi guys I need your help yet again I have an epson R300 which i have installed using the Epson driver disk However Print CD will not work with Panther 10.3.9 I need the new drivers from Epson.

Well just download em ya fool i hear you say

Thats the problem i have and they have come down as epson19757eu.sit

aha a Stuffit file the only trouble is stuffit won't open the drivers I tried uninstalling Stuffit and reinstalling it no joy

However just one point (please bear in mind I have been a windows user for the last 15 years) but once i had unintsalled Stuffit the download kept the stuffit icon in windows it would go to a non-descript icon when the file was uninstalled. Does that not happen with MAC????....

Also how do i search for a file or folder on a MAC i like to know if i have stuffit installed somewhere else can anyone make any suggestion as to how i can open this file. Ive already tried changing the file extenstion and trying disk utility won't have it


Time for an update uninstalled stuffit again uninstalled printer then reinstalled printer then redownloaded Drivers and hey presto it worked this time

Which has give me one more question is there a program out there or a particular way to clean your hard drive of dross/tosh without doing a clean install.

As I'm still awaiting my offcial Tiger 10.4 DVD to be delivered and to tell the truth it will proabably be a few week before i feel confident enought to tackle a full clean install

There is a widely quoted program called AppZapper which is supposed to do a lot of clean up for you. Here is the URL:

http://www.appzapper.com/

I have never used it so I cannot vouch for it.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
