The tray is loaded with 10x15 cm Epson Premium Glossy paper and the printer is configured accordingly. However, when I am using the TurboPrint dialog from GIMP to print a photo, the printer always uses the paper loaded in cassette 2 (the image is printed in the right size). This happens both with and without borderless printing. Selecting 'cassette 1' instead of 'auto select' as paper feed has no influence either.
Here are the settings I have used for printing:
These settings resulted in the following output in the turboprint monitor: If I set the feed to Cassette 2, I also get 'Feed = Cassette 2' in the monitor. In both cases, the printer uses the A4 paper loaded in tray 2, on which it prints the image in the correct dimensions (10x15cm).
Code: Select all
lp -d ET-7700 -o media=Borderless10x15cm -o InputSlot=Cassette1 Image.JPG
I tried all 5 values for InputSlot, the printer always uses cassette 2.
Unfortunately, this bug makes TurboPrint unusable for me.
- TI (printer job timer, probably not relevant for the problem at hand)
- PM 00 00 (don't know what this one does)
- US 00 08 00 (user setting)
- DR 00 42 00 00 (drying time)
Strangely, the PP (paper path) command (which selects the paper feed) is the same as the one sent by the Windows driver.
So, probably either "PM 00 00" or "US 00 08 00" would do the trick.
Before I hack those commands manually into the stream: Is there a way I can modify the tpp file to make TurboPrint send those commands?
But there's another block of remote mode commands in the output of the Windows driver. It doesn't look special except for an "HD 00 03 02" command (same values for all input trays).
I think we finally found the problem (with the help of another customer who read this thread), I will send a new driver file to sdrave and b81.
EDIT: I could't send the new driver file to b81, email undeliverable. Please write if you want to get it (the filx will also be included in the next TurboPrint release).
