I've got a new mac mini (the latest one mid-2011) and it has Lion in it. I have an old Epson Stylus C59 and would like to use it in this mac mini. However, the epson site has no installer for mac.

Has anyone come up with a workaround? Please share if you know. I know this printer is already old buy hey, it still works :)

UPDATE: I found Gutenprint for Epson and the closest is Epson Stylus C50. Does anyone know if this works for Epson Stylus C59?

You should first try your printer. Most likely Lion already has drivers installed. If not, it'll prompt you and download and install the proper drivers automatically. That's a Mac. Things just work. You no longer have to go hunting around for drivers. – user10355 Dec 28 '11 at 6:43

You may want to look at the following

The closest I found that was support by OS X was Epson Stylus C60.

It is quite possible that you could find success by utilizing the C60 driver. – E1Suave Apr 25 '12 at 6:05
