Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

 
 

Epson Printer Drivers 2.3.1 for Mac OS X 10.6

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's release notes for its latest Epson Printer Drivers update for Snow Leopard say only that the update "installs the latest software for your Epson printer or scanner." While the notes link to a master list of supported Epson printers, they don't indicate which models have been added. Still, it's nice to know that Apple is expanding its printer support, and you can search the list to see if a particular printer is supported. (Free, 688.23)

Installing that has removed an Epson plug-in for Intel Base so I'm unable to use Vuescan anymore

That seems troublesome! Have you checked with Ed Hamrick about that? Or it may be easier to just reinstall VueScan.
