Re: Unable to print from digikam or gimp...

I found a solution, at least with export from Darktable: export as pdf 16 bit and then use gtklp to print. The only downside I've found is that the pdf file is roughly twice the size of the tiff file.

Re: Unable to print from digikam or gimp...

After debugging, here is what I figured: - When lp or lpr is executed, cups processes the image through 2 filters: imagetopdf and pstoturboprint (according to /var/log/cups/error_log). - imagetopdf only accepts tiff images with 8 bits (or less) per channel https://fossies.org/linux/cups-filters/cups...

Re: Unable to print from digikam or gimp...

My question is how to print using turboprint, without the gimp. Because gimp-git does not build reliably, for me anyway, and because it is kind of silly to have to maintain such a large program on my computer just to interface with turboprint, which according to the manual, can print from the comman...

Re: Unable to print from digikam or gimp...

I've been trying to debug this for a while, using lp, lpr or gtklp (great, simple but seemingly complete ui frontend!). I can print a jpeg image, but not a 16 bit tiff image (which is a problem for photographs); such 16 bit images print fine from turboprint/gimp 2.9. When I try printing a tiff file ...

Unable to print from digikam or gimp...

I've been printing from Gimp where the Turboprint dialog is great. However Gimp 2.9 no longer builds on Arch (this is a recurrent problem), so looking for another way to print a 16bit tiff that uses Turboprint. I installed digikam but the print dialog does not offer the options that are shown in the...

Re: TurboPrint can no longer reach the printer

Problem solved: it seems my Internet access provider made changes to router configuration. I reinstated the static IP address for the printer and modified the IP in CUPS, and everything works fine now.

TurboPrint can no longer reach the printer [SOLVED]

I've been printing successfully with turboprint on my Epson P800 since the Fall of 2016. Now after not having printed for a couple of weeks, turboprint complains that the printer is unreachable. I have not modified configuration of cups, turboprint or the router regarding the printer. The printer is...

How can I obtain free upgrade Turboprint?

Hi,
I purchased a license which entitles me to free updates until 2018-11-09. How do I proceed to upgrade? On the site I only found a link to buy an update.

Thanks.

Vertical lines in prints

I've been using TP for several months and I just realized that my prints contain a series of vertical lines made up of dots that reflect light, roughly every 2 cm, a single line alternating with a double line. These are only visible with light coming at a steep angle from above. I have tried setting...
