    Filter failed error with Epson 3880 printer in Mac Mountain Lion

    It was actually working fine before in my Mac and now after the Mountain Lion upgrade it just stopped working given the error as “Filter failed” What does it mean? Why I am getting this error in first place? What should I do now to make ti work as before? Can someone guide me on this? Thanks.

    Reasons to your problem are --->
    -There must be error in the log file.
    -One of the log file might not be executing.
    -/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/Filter/rastertoescpII.app/Contents/MacOS /rastertoescpII might have stopped working giving the concerned error.

    Solutions to your problem are --->
    -Open the console and check which log file failed.
    /var/log/cups/error_log
    -First of all remove all the preferences.
    -To do this,go to System Preferences followed by printers option.
    -Delete the printer.
    -Now add the printer.
    -Switch the connection to USB from FW.
    -If problem persists,uninstall the driver using CD ROM and reinstall it again.

    Your problem will be solved.
