"EPSON Printer Utility" (/Library/Printers/EPSON/Utilities/) in Panther
show the printer window but the not list the USB Epson Stylus Color 777.
However I was able print on this printer.

For time to time I need to clean the printer nozzle.
I can can do it in OS 9, but I want work in Panther.
What can I do ?

Amazing. I have seen lots of people complaining about numerous Epson
printer and scanner driver problems in Panther but i have yet to see a
single mention at MacFixit.

I have the same problem with a different Epson printer not to speak of
the abysmally slow performance via Panther.

Hmmm, I have a SP785EPX and the Printer Utility works fine for me.

Try using the CUPS+GIMP driver. To do this, select USB (not Epson USB),
then select Epson, and scroll down the list for your model.

I too have noticed that printing is very slow under Panther. There are
lots of posts about this on Apple's Discussion list too. Hopefully this
will be addressed in a (near) future update...

I don't have a solution, but I have Panther.1 and the 777 and they get
along fine, including the Printer Utility. Again, I don't have the
answer, but I can assure you that it can be done.

You should be able to clean the nozzle in Panther. I've cleaned my Epson 820 &
925. Just click on the Print Center ( i keep mine in the dock). Then click
Print Center Utility. When the printer list comes up, click OK. You'll see the
Nozzle check, Head cleaning, Fluid levels, etc.

Thanks for responding. That is what my driver currently is:

"Epson Stylus 740,CUPS+Gimp-print v.4.2.5" That appears to be my only
choice, too. I hope they address it soon too.
