I changed my Mac OSX back to 10.3.9 after Leopard was not compatible with Photoshop 7. Had the Epson Stylus R1800 working just fine before, and I can get it to print now but I don't have any controls when...

You need to trash and re-install the drivers.
Pls follow the instructions to trash drivers on 10.3.9:
- Go to printer set-up utility or print center. Highlight the R1800 under the printer list then delete it.
- Go to library, then printers. Trash the whole epson folder.
- Empty the trash
- Restart your mac.

To re-install the drivers. Pls follow the instructions:
- Log on to
- Click on printers to the left of the page. Then click on inkjet under printers. Click on the R1800 to the right of the page.
- Click on macintosh under drivers and downloads. Click on the 3rd driver down (i.e. Printer Driver v2.1aA / epson12113.dmg. Then click on download now.
- Click on No thanks i prefer not to receive this information, then click on the accept button. It should download automatically.
- Click on the mounted icon on your desktop that says epson12113.dmg then click on the visex installer. Go ahead and install the driver.
- Add the printer. make sure that your printer is on and plugged into the mac.
Go to print center or printer set-up utility. click on the printer under the printer name then click add when it allows you to.
- try to print something.

if you need more assistance. pls let me know.

Which mac are you using the intel based or intel core 2 duo or powerpc macs? you can check that when you click on the apple icon and then about this mac. did you download the updated driver on Epson's website? pls respond right away so that i can help you on this. Chances are the driver didnt load properly, mac computer is using the generic or resident drivers installed on your computer, that is a guten print driver.

Cannot print from my Intel based MAcBook Pro on my Epson Stylus Photo R1800

mac book pro has a usb cable right? you can actually use it to connect to the r2400 and then dont use a guten driver use the downloadable driver for r2400 for leopard instead

Macintosh OS X 10.5 drivers for your product are available for download from the Epson support site.

1. Go to the Epson support website (

2. Select your product model and download the driver for OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system.

Note: Be sure to select the appropriate driver compatible with your system: PowerPC or Intel Intel based.

Unable to locate R1800 in dropdown menu

I had the same problem. Try the driver from the Gutenprint site, search google for Gutenprint. It worked for me.
