Gimp Plugin crashes

Post by Steve.Altobelli » Wed Jul 18, 2018 6:56 pm

I recently upgraded to Kubuntu 18.04 and installed Gimp 2.10 via flatpak. I downloaded the TP 2.46 deb, installed it, set up my printer, and added my keyfile. I tried to print to my Canon Pro9000 Mark II via gimp. There was no File->Turboprint menu entry. The plugin was not executable so I made it so with chmod. Then the gimp menu item appeared, but the plugin always crashes.

I also have tried the TP 2.43 deb with similar results.

The testpage prints nicely. I can print with Libre Office writer, but I prefer to use gimp.

I'd very much appreciate any help you can give.

the TurboPrint print plugin works with GIMP 2.8 (GIMP 2.8 can be installed on (k)ubuntu 18.04 via apt-get) but currently does not work with GIMP 2.10. A TurboPrint plugin for GIMP 2.10 is planned.

You can use the regular GIMP print dialog to print with TurboPrint.
