TurboPrint Printer Monitor
||Linux has a sophisticated system of access rights – a regular user has only limited access to the computer system. In TurboPrint 1.x it was necessary to log in as "root" user to get the printer's ink status.
With TurboPrint 2 comes a new software component, the TurboPrint Printer Monitor. It continually monitors the printer in the background, informs the user on ink status and also reports printer warnings and errors – this information can even be forwared to other computers in a network.
Only one central configuration program – no root login required
||Previously there were two TurboPrint configuration tools – TurboPrint Setup for printer setup and TurboPrint Config for printer configuration. TurboPrint 2 combines these two programs in one control center. A "root login" is no longer required – the new “TurboPrint Control Center” requests the administrator password only when it becomes necessary.
For the photo editing and paint software "GIMP" there is now a special print plugin that makes printing via TurboPrint very easy and comfortable.
The plugin is published under GPL license.
