If you are experiencing a problem that you believe may be a driver bug please check the bug tracker. If the problem you are facing is not listed in the installer disk documentation, the FAQ, the forums, or the bug tracker then you should file a support request against it. If there is a feature missing from Gutenprint that you would like to see added please file a feature request.
Gimp-Print 4.2.7 is the last stable release of Gimp-Print version 4.2.x for Mac OS X; it includes 225 drivers supporting over 600 printers. The disk-image file includes an OS X installer package, an uninstaller package, plus illustrated documentation to easily guide you through the printer set-up process. (source code)
Gutenprint 5.2.8 is a stable release of Gutenprint 5.2 The Canon driver has been significantly overhauled for this release, and output (and in some cases functionality) may be significantly different from previous releases. We expect to perform further work in future releases. Also, an additional eighteen new Epson printers has been added. For all the specific changes, please see the release notes.
Uninstall Gutenprint 1.2.1 is an update to the Gutenprint uninstaller for Mac OS X. This release can remove the Gutenprint drivers Apple supplies with the Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5.x) install disk. Also, the uninstaller will now provide the user with confirmation that shows what has been removed.
Please note that as of 5.0.0-beta1 the behavior of the Mac OS X installer has changed. The installer will now permit Gimp-Print 4.2.x and Gimp-Print 5.0 to be installed simultaneously, so that printer queues may be created using either driver. If you do not wish to retain your existing installation of Gimp-Print 4.2.x simply click on the Customize button available on the last screen of the installer and check the box for \"Gimp-Print 4.2.x Uninstaller\"
Please also note that this release of the installer will update any existing 4.2.x printer queue for use with 5.0. If you wish to continue using Gimp-Print 4.2.x after installing 5.0 you will need to manually create a new printer queue, or use Print Center/Printer Setup Utility to change the driver. If you would like to comment on this installer behavior please send a polite note to the Gimp-Print developer mailing list!
The predecessor to this software package (the original Print plugin for the GIMP) was first written by Michael Sweet of Easy Software Products and initially worked only as a print plugin to the GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). In the summer of 1999, I purchased an Epson Stylus Photo EX printer to feed my photography hobby. Finding no existing printer drivers, I adapted Mike's GIMP Print plugin to this six-color printer, and by the end of the year released version 3.0 of the Gimp-Print software, which was included in version 1.1 of the GIMP. The intention was for this to be the stable plugin in version 1.2 of the GIMP while development of the GIMP Print plugin continued for later release.
I put the Gimp-Print development tree on SourceForge starting with version 3.1, and quickly found a group of like-minded people who wanted to print high quality output on inexpensive inkjet printers. One of the main goals, which was not expected to be met until late in the version 3.1 cycle, was to write a Ghostscript driver so that printing would not be restricted to the GIMP. Much to my surprise, someone wrote one within days! That gave me my first clue that the project was destined for greater things.
The Gimp-Print 4.2 release proved to be far more successful than we ever imagined. First of all, it was wonderfully stable from the outset; it was to be over 4 months before we needed to release an update. We added one major new feature shortly after release, support for the new Ghostscript driver architecture based on HP's HPIJS driver. This driver architecture allowed drivers to be compiled independently of Ghostscript (previously drivers had to be compiled into Ghostscript, a somewhat daunting project for end users). We continued to add more printers, dither algorithms, and so forth, all without breaking compatibility with the initial 4.2.0 release.
2002 was a very exciting year for Gimp-Print. Apple had released OS X for the Macintosh and was planning to rely on a lot of free/open source software for key functions of the OS. In particular from our standpoint, many vendors had not updated printer drivers for OS X, and many did not want to update their drivers for older printers. Since OS X had settled on CUPS as the core of its printing system from 10.2 on, and Gimp-Print had full support for CUPS, the fit was very obvious and Gimp-Print wound up becoming part of the OS X printing system. We were very busy that year preparing for release of Gimp-Print for OS X. This was done in 4.2.2, which we released almost 9 months after the initial 4.2.0 release (which says something about the stability of Gimp-Print 4.2). This release created a lot of excitement in the OS X world and for us, and we did three more releases in quick succession culminating with Gimp-Print 4.2.5 in early 2003.
Unfortunately, we didn't accomplish all of our goals for Gutenprint 5.0. We have not incorporated true color management; our Postscript output driver in the GIMP plugin (and indeed, the GIMP plugin itself) is still in need of a rewrite; the drivers other than the Epson driver haven't been fully updated to take advantage of the capabilities of Gutenprint 5.0. However, these changes can be made later, either in later 5.0 releases or in the next release series. Gutenprint is not \"finished\" and never will be!
[Ver.10.84.2.0]- The following problem has been rectified:While installing the printer driver, you may be prompted to install Xcode. [Ver.10.67.2.0]- OS X Mavericks v10.9 has been added as a supported OS.The following problem has been rectified:- The ink level information is not displayed in [Supply Levels] when the printer driver is upgraded to v10.67.1.0.[Ver.10.67.1.0]- OS X Mountain Lion (v10.8) has been added as a supported OS.[Ver.10.51.2.0]- OS X v10.7 has been added as a supported OS.[Ver.10.42.3.0]- The internal modules have been updated.[Ver.10.42.1.0]- In the [Quality & Media] panel, the display of the options of [Print Quality] has been changed from the radio button to the drop-down menu.[Ver.10.26.0.0]- Supports OS X v10.6.
Additionally, while supporting Canon specialty media, the media weight supports overs for a range between 64 and 105 gsm. Additionally, there is two-sided printing available with a feature that chooses the paper size and type automatically. Many of the common media sizes are also compatible with this component. At the Canon website, get the Canon PIXMA MP630 driver.
We were unable to find drivers for your product. Try manually selecting your operating system. If your operating system is not listed then HP may not provide driver support for your product with that operating system.
The PIXMA MP640 won't allow you to use Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections simultaneously, which is a common restriction on printers and multifunctions. Inputting a wireless network password using only the Easy Scroll Wheel can be frustrating, particularly as it stops responding if spun too quickly; for the most part, however, Wi-Fi set up is quite simple. We enabled wireless scanning quickly, and a few minutes of tinkering with the one-click preferences in the bundled MP Navigator software meant we could initiate direct-to-PC scanning options from the PIXMA MP640's control panel. However, we did find it more difficult to set up printing over both Ethernet and Wi-Fi using Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Though Canon already offers a driver for the new operating system, it refused to install, and our testbed wouldn't recognise the multifunction in Apple's Bonjour network discovery search over Wi-Fi. 1e1e36bf2d
