Re: turboprint-startmonitor doesn't run

Hallo Jiffy111, can you start TurboPrint-Monitor by clicking on the "TurboPrint-Monitor" Desktop icon or from TurboPrint Control with the "Status Monitor" button? The "startmonitor" script that you called is not really suited for that purpose as it also tries to copy desktop applets into system fold...

You just need to install the software package again, then activate it with your license keyfile. In case of a new computer it might be necessary to contact us in case the keyf...

The "driverless" system is probably running on your Linux. This blocks the printer and should give (limited) access via a local IPP connection - the printer should be visible in TurboPrint Control -> "Add printer" dialog as "Epson SC-P600 series (driverless)". It usually helps to disable the "driver...

Re: No USB option for standard printer port

Hello, of course you should see the printer. Please execute lsusb in a terminal window to check if the printer is recognized by your computer. If that works, please execute sudo /usr/lib/cups/backend/usb sudo /usr/lib/cups/backend/tpu to check if the printer is also recognized by "usb", the standard...

Re: White order at bottom of 13x19 prints for Epson Xp-15000

Hello, which version of PrintFab do you use (PrintFab Toolbox -> pulldown menu "About PrintFab Toolbox")? There was actually a problem in PrintFab 2.94 with a white margin at the page end in borderless mode. I recommend to upgrade to PrintFab 2.95: https://www.zedonet.com/download/printfab/printfab-...

Re: Support for Canon imageprograf Pro-300

Please excuse the late answer.

The next TurboPrint version 2.51 (planned for June) will have printer drivers for Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-4000 and Canon imagePROGRAF TM300, we have no schedule for the Pro-300 driver yet.

Re: What are ink level usage defaults in print dialog, and how can the defaults be set?

Please excuse the delay.

Your UI looks different because you have a different printer. For the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 and other printers with grey inks, there is a "Photo Inks" slider instead of the "Bright Cyan" and "Bright Magenta" sliders.
