I have searched a variety of forums (fori?) for guidance, and I have come to believe there is a current Epson driver (v8.64) for the 7800 that will provide full functionality with both Mountain Lion and Snow Leopard. However, before I spend the money for a good used 7800 with full ink cartridges, and then lug the 150 pound beast home and upstairs, I thought I'd ask: Anyone using this combination? Any issues?
TIA for any information.

I have fought and fought to get my 7800 operable. It is working, but I cannot get the ICC profiles to show up in the color management drop-down list. The profiles are where Epson says they should be, but they don't appear as choices. While the folks at Epson have been helpful, their suggestions have resulted in me loosing the drivers for my scanner, my R2400, and my Epson 545 office printer. I am now printing on the 7800, and the 2400, but not the 545--why it won't work escapes me. I even tried to move everything to a newer iMac running Mountain Lion, and that resulted in more disaster--thank goodness I was pretty well backed up.
Are you using the ICC profiles? If so, do you recall what you had to do to access them? Did they just appear after you installed the driver as they should?
Thanks for any additional help you can give me.

Not sure if you received this email from me - I had been struggling with something similar when I bought my 7890 about a year ago.
When I loaded the Luster in the printer, I did change the paper selection
on the printer. The printer looked fine. The problem was when I went to my
Mac computer, the driver looked strange and my selections were greyed out
and very limited.
It turned out that my driver had been corrupted. Not sure why. These are
the instructions from Epson to fix the problem:
Please try the following:
1. Click Apple...System Preferences...Print & Fax/Scan
2. Select your printer and delete it (click -)
3. Download the latest printer driver from http://support.epson.com
4. Open Mac HD/Library/Printers and trash the Epson folder*
5. Open Mac HD...Applications...Utility
6. Double-Click Disk Utility
7. Select the Mac HD and perform: Repair Disk Permissions
8. Install the downloaded driver normally
9. Click Apple...System Preferences...Print & Fax/Scan
10. Add a printer (Click +)
11. Select your printer and click Add
12. Try printing
*this will uninstall ALL Epson printers
I hope this helps others as Epson said that this problem is not unusual
but easily fixed.
Mel, I took your suggestion to call Epson directly. They answered promptly
and provided first class service. Thanks.
Are you saying that I should not have to select the paper on the printer
and that by selecting it on the epson driver on my computer, should be
