i9900 gimp file > print ok, but file > turboprint magenta

Post by betty » Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:11 pm

I printed 2 identical jobs:

GNU Image Manipulation Program version 2.6.10

using GEGL version 0.0.22 (compiled against version 0.0.22)
using GLib version 2.24.2 (compiled against version 2.24.1)
using GTK+ version 2.20.1 (compiled against version 2.20.1)
using Pango version 1.28.3 (compiled against version 1.28.1)
using Fontconfig version 2.8.0 (compiled against version 2.8.0)

turboprint_2.23-1_i386.deb

downloaded today.

The log.diff between gimp > file > 'print' AND gimp > file > 'turboprint' is below. The turboprint option I think is disguised gutenprint. The 'turboprint' option gives a marked magenta cast to the printouts, but the plain 'print' option works correctly. This is a continuous problem, and users are tossing their printers and buying new ones because of it! I can only ponder what the gutenprint team thinks of turboprint, software held for ransom, stealing the gutrenprint interface! They probably mine the code just so turboprint won't work.

Hello,

the only difference between the two prints in the log file is that one was made with "Intent"="Perception" and the other with "Intent"="Perception Photo" which should only slightly affect image contrast and not affect color balance.

I will try to reproduce this - which Linux distribution are you using?

PS: The GIMP plugin print dialog "TurboPrint..." is actually based on the older GIMP/Gutenprint print dialog and is released under GPL license as is stated in the TurboPrint manual
The TurboPrint print dialog for GIMP is a modified version of the
original GIMP/Gutenprint dialog (version gutenprint-5.1.6) which was
published under GNU General Public License Version 2. The version for
TurboPrint is also published under GNU GPL V2, the sourcecode is
available on our FTP server ftp.zedonet.com/gpturboprint

Re: i9900 gimp file > print ok, but file > turboprint magent

I have another i9900. The turboprint driver works correctly with that one. I had used the Canon Windows XP driver to select the 'magenta' effect, save, unselect 'magenta' effect, and save again. That cured the problem. So, it might be a mishandled printer 'feature' that bugs turboprint. I can't perform the same test on the problem printer right now, but I'll try to get to it soon. I'll post back when I have results.

I apologize for the blind assumption. Please forgive me.

As per Canon tech support instructions,

1). Connected the printer to a PC with the i9900 turboprint driver installed.

2). I powered on the printer and waited until the printer was recognized by the OS.

3). Diconnected the printer's power cord while the printer was powered up.

4). Disconnected the USB cable from the printer.

5). Waited 30 seconds.

6). Reinserted the USB cable.

7). Reinserted the power cord.

8). Powered on the printer, and the problem was repaired.

Thank you for the instructions!

Disconnecting the power cord while the printer is powered on will probably consume ink (cleaning cycle when the printer is switched on the next time) but can solve problems with clogged ink nozzles.
