gimp print and printer sharing?
Authored by: bakalite on Dec 20, '02 07:10:44PM

The info I can't find anywhere is whether or not gimp print will still allow you to do printer sharing over a network with the printer connected via usb to one of themachines. I'm running my epson 1280 like that right now, and I don't want to break things if that doesn't work.

gimp print and printer sharing?
Authored by: hap on Dec 21, '02 03:24:07AM

Looks like it works to me. I installed the gimp packages a while ago so I can't be sure I have the latest and greatest but after making sure the printer was set up as recommended by the OSX FAQ I got on my IBook and printed a few things on my IMac's DesckJet 930C just fine. Gotta love that wireless networking. The only complaint I would hae is that the FAQ says.

"You can access the settings for the Gimp-Print driver whenever a print sheet is open. Just click on the popup menu that says "Copies & Pages" and choose "Printer Features"."

and I don't have any such option. Any Ideas?

Good Luck
