<< We also have a 1520 with the Epson Postscript RIP on a G3 (System 8.6)
it prints fine from Illustrator 7.0 and 8.0. Quark eps files print fine
too. Perhaps it is some other problem. Our G3 is the older 266 tower.

The Stylus RIP is not seeing the printer for some reason. I did revisit
Epson web site and found they do have a 1520 update now. I downloaded that
and did the update with no effect. I also upgraded Illustrator to 8.0.1.
was able to print my files from Illustrator without using the Stylus RIP.
guess my next option might be to re-install the RIP software and see if
got corrupted somehow.
