Epson Printer Drivers


I have an Epson Stylus NX510 that I picked up for free maybe a year ago.

Well, my hp 6180 finally died. RIP. More on that saga later.

But luckily, I had the Epson. Or so I thought.

Today I set it up and getting the Mac to install the drivers is a no go.

When I try to add the printer in Print Preferences – the computer sees the printer (over wifi).

So I select it and the computer tells me that drivers are available from Apple and gives me the choice to download and install.

So I say – go for it.

Only to get a new message that says “The software for this printer is currently unavailable.”.


Something that should have taken minutes has taken the bulk of my day.

I even tried to directly download the Epson printer drivers from Apple.

The installation says Successful! – but still when I try to add the printer – same old story.

Does anyone have a solution that can help me out?

Please? I am at my wit’s end.

UPDATE: And after all that – did I follow my own cardinal advice? The first line of defense? Restart the computer. Yup – that was all that it took. I restarted and then added the printer in printer preferences. Done.
