v. 6.12 is the latest driver for the 2400 listed for Mac Intel on the Epson site.
Yes sorry I do have the latest driver.
My problem is as follows. When printing from Lightroom, there seems to be a problem choosing a custom printing profile. These are my printing steps.
1) Select a custom profile from the Print Job pane, eg: SPR 2400 Photo Qlty IJP
2) I open the "print settings" dialog from the button in LR.
3) I select the 'color matching' option which shows that ColorSync and Epson Color Controls are greyed out (due to the photo quality IJP custom profile selection I expect)
4) I select 'Print Settings'
5) My settings are for standard plain paper, with Colour Settings set to 'Off (No Color Adjustment)
Mode is Automatic
6) If you click of the advanced color settings option the screen reads
"Selected Media Type : Plain Paper"
"Appropriate ColorSync Profile: SPR2400 Standard"
>>>> If I make a print at this point, it is supersaturated and extremely bright.
From this I conclude that my custom profile is not being used. I suspect that the 'SPR2400 Standard' profile is being used instead, though I am not certain about this.
I can make prints so long as I choose something like Premium Glossy, where coincidentally the Appropriate ColorSync profile matches my paper... even though my custom profile is being used.
This is what I suspect is happening, but I"m not certain.
Certainly my custom profile is not being used.
Is this a bug in Leopard (others think so) or in Epsons driver (It was last updated in December)
I don't know... I do know that custom profiles are currently dead on this machine.
Those of you with 3800's may not be seeing this problem as you probably have the more upto date drivers for Leopard as 3800 and up have a different driver download page because of the higher bit width drivers.
PS: Irritatingly my R1800 seems to work correctly, the Print Settings dialog is arranged differently and more simply. So its only my best printer which does not seem to work.
