Epson released new 2200 drivers on 11/25/09 (driver 8.1.2), which states compatibility for 10.6.  You may also need to install the common updater which also lists 10.6, although it was released quite some time ago so most have probably already installed this.

Wow!! But I'm living on the wrong side off the ocean and have a 2100 which is in essence the same as the 2200. The last update for the 2100 is v.3.09 from 05-Nov-2007. No recent update except for some hopeless Gutenprint driver were you cannot even switch printer colormanagement off!! There is simply no checkbox for this. So if I have to print I switch back to CS3.

I can't help you much but I remember that one could make the Epson 2100 work with the US driver. I don't know what's required (driver modification or something else) but I once saw it done. I can't find the name of that person, unfortunately.

It's nice that Epson updated the 2200 driver to be compatible with Snow Leopard.  Any word on the 4000?  I understood they were going to update this one as well, but I can't find it.  In the meantime I'm stuck with booting into Leopard to do my printing.

My 3800 is printing just fine from Snow Leopard.

That's great news Wayne!. I have a 4880 on order as well. Any comments on that driver on Snow Leopard?

I plan to do a fresh install of Snow Leopard this weekend. (I'll make a clone of my Tiger drive first though)
