Printing from a MAC OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), most likely using an Epson printer, receives an error filter failed


This seems to be compatibility issue with Mountain Lion and Epson printers.  The solution that seems to work most often is to unplug the printer from the MAC and remove the printer (delete the printer) from the MAC.  Install all Apple Updates and then re-start the MAC. Plug the printer back into the MAC and the correct driver software should load automatically. For additional information, please check this thread on Apple’s support site here  or contact your printer manufacturer for help.
