Espon Stylus Pro 7500 with Fiery RIP Station v1.5 under OS X Leopord

Posted in OS X, TechSupport by rip747 on August 28, 2008

This whole week we’ve been trying to get my designer’s old Epson Stylus Pro 7500 with a Fiery RIP Station v1.5 to work under MAC OSX Leopard. Turns out this isn’t supported anymore by Epson, but you can get it to work if you have the correct PPD!

The Jim at Epson support was kind enough to send me the PPD via email and once installed the printer is now working just fine.

The steps to take are as follows:

1) Download the file “Epson Stylus Pro 7500 PPD.dmg” from the box.net widget.

2) Extract the dmg

3) open a new finder window and copy the PPD file to the following directory: Macintosh HD -> Library -> Printers -> PPDS -> Contents -> Resources

4) Now change the driver for your 7500 and select the new “Fiery X2 5100 series” driver from the drop down and your set!

    Unfortunately it doesn’t work with my 7500.
    I have macMini, Leopard and Epson 7500. Can’t print with any drivers as well as yours.
