    Epson Stylus CX 7800
    OK, I've been on my new macbook (new to mac entirely) for nearly 2 weeks now. I've really had no issues BUT this.

    I cannot get my printer to work... the drivers aren't on here so I had to download them... I followed the instructions precisely (including resetting the printer) but they simply don't show up even after a restart (which I know isn't necessary). At any rate, I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?

    The printer I'm discussing is an Epson Stylus CX-7800

    Hi GulfVetSAF and welcome to Mac-Forums.

    Did you take a look at this .pdf file, Epson Stylus CX7800? There's a step-by-step procedure on how to get it working.

    Appreciate the link... but I've even installed using the drivers disk that came with it (and downloaded the drivers as well from Epson's site). When I plug the printer directly into my macbook it works, but when I try and set it up on my network, the drivers for this particular printer aren't available (in the drop down menu)...??? So, if I use the generic printer settings that it defaults to, I get a bunch of gobbly gook or a bunch of blank pages when I try and print something.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro Retina 13" • iPhone 6 • iPad Air • and many iPods
    I have the same printer, and I connect to it via my network (through a D-Link Print Server).

    The only thing that worked for me was loading the Gutenprint drivers. Now it works like a charm. :-)

    Hope this helps!
