    Printer problems with gimp


    I'm on mandrake 9.2 and use gimp 1.2. Unfortunately whenever I try to print all that happens is that I get one peice of paper withw we need Your Help to get more of these links to linuxforums.org on the Internet than ever before.

    %%Creator: Print plug-in V4.2.5 - 24 Jan 2003 for Gimp/Gimp - Print

    and then it just shoots out blank pages until I cancel the print. I'm using a HP Deskjet 932c. I tried to instal new drivers for the printer but that didn't help, and I searched the gimp site for the plug-in but it did not have it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Ok there is a simple fix for this, the next time u go to print something from the Gimp u need to set up the printer(or rather choose the printer to use with the Gimp) so do File/Print then the diolog box will open and in the upper right hand corner of that box u will see 'Setup Printer ' and 'New Printer' buttons ......Setup Printer ........and if the exact printer is not listed and u are using an hp printer u can choose 855c and that will drive all hp deskjets and most office jets and the printer part of officejet all in one's after that point (thought there could be a few acceptions).
