    Hello

    I've appreciated the new 3.13 for my Mini but I still get problem with my printer even is supported: Epson Stylus 750, which works very well on OSX 10.4.
    I've noticed some Trident warnings:

    hid.class SET_IDLE=0 failed endpoint stall (4)!
    cdcacm.class Unable to load modeswitch data file...
    printer.class SOFT_RESET(USB1.1) failed endpoint stall (4)
    Trident Forcing a DirScan for (new) classes, as you probably updated to a newer version

    I'm not sure but I guess Trident does not detect my printer.
    Is there any solution out there?

    I get also some errors connecting the Lexmarc E120n Laserprinter via USB, but does'nt had any impact. Can you see your printer in menue Devices? There should be a entry like this: "Epson Stylus... running... bidirectional... printer.class"
    If yes, try to print from Turboprint via Device (usbparallel.device, unit=0)

    You should also have a look at USB-Prefs/classes/printer.class. Doubleclick on printer.class entry and global settings will appear. Epson init sequence and Enable soft reset should be on.

    Yes it's like yours. OK but then I can't print anyway...
    Where can I find "USB-Prefs" location?
    On System "Printer" I selected Device which is empty. I'd expect usb.whatever.device but is empty even the right driver for my printer model is selected.
    Then I'm not able to config "Printers" maybe because Device in "Printer" is empty.
    I don't find any printer tool even to just print a test page.

    You will find USB Prefs also in Ambient-Menue Prefs/System, where the Printerprefs are located: Click to USB directly beside Printer. And then click on Devices to see all connected devices!

    The Device in Printer-Prefs (Turboprint) you have to type in manualy as I wrote before: usbparallel.device and Unit is 0
    For test you can type in a shell: echo "hello world" >PRT:

    OK I added "usbparallel.device" unit 0, save it...then I tried typing from shell and I got "unable to open redirection file".
    In Printers when I try to search for driver doesn't find anything and I have no clue how to add one.
