Thanks, but, no, that's not the issue. I can get the actual file to install the profile but for the fact that the file has a circle and a mark through it and when I try to open it, I get the error message that it is only for PowerPC Macs. I got a reply from Epson that they are not supporting this printer with Intel-compatible profiles (of course, Intel processors have been in Macs since 2006!).
Also, I don't get true black in my B&W photo prints (usually on Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Matte) for which there is no exact icc profile either. Using all Epson inks. Very frustrating.
