Epson has finally released a CUPS driver for the TM-88iv thermal receipt printer.  The driver works great on my Linux box.  Now I would like to see if this driver will work on my mac which also uses CUPS for printing.  

Thanks for checking this out.  = )

It's kinda funny.  I think I found this at the same time you did.  I've been trying to get my receipt printer to work with my mac and linux box for years and now have them both working in the same day!  Wooohoo!
