A black&white printer without built-in PostScript is something like a 
piece of scrap. (My not so humble opinion.)

This is my idea: put both of your Macs side by side and lauch 
i-Installer on both. Now choose "Configure Only" and pay attention that 
both are set-up the same way -- and make corrections. I presume the 
mistake happend when you were asked whether TeX should download all 
fonts. And it has to, since the printer has no fonts built-in.

On the command line you could also invoke these three:

	sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --setoption dvipsDownloadBase35 true
	sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --setoption pdftexDownloadBase14 
	sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --setoption dvipdfmDownloadBase14 

I think the best would be to use the Latin Modern fonts instead of 
Computer Modern (\usepackage{lmodern}). They are available to the 
system too, so there is hope that CUPS or the EPSON driver will find 
these fonts and would rasterize them.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
