I have cups running. I'd have thought that too, so I'm doing something insanely stupid. I can print to my other HP printer, but it understands .ps natively. If the answer to printing from gimp is 'just print a .ps' then I'm happy. : I remember : when I was using an HP2000c, it wasn't listed under gimp either, but I : was able to install it there because I was able to use it with cups. : Failing that, there are other programs you can use to print the : adjusted jpg file, kuickshow is one, openoffice2.0.2 has several, kde : has several besides kuickshow, gnome2 has several. I can print test pages with the CUPS interface w/o a problem. I'll try directly printing a simple color PS document next. I just realized that I haven't tried to do that yet. : Warner, I know you are expert on FreeBSD, and know you know your way : around a computer at least as well as I do, if not better, I have : several emails from you concerning ACPI, and you show up in various : other lists that I belong to, so I know who you are. My question to you : is: do you have some hidden reason for showing up on questions and : acting like a newbie, or are you sincerely looking for help here. With : the hand holding your asking for, I'm beginning to wonder. If you do : in-fact, need the help, then you should know that without providing : information, that you haven't been volunteering, we aren't going to get : anywhere fast. The reason is that I've been trying to get printing working for something like ages. I've fought cups, hpijs, etc many times in the past. I picked bad times, in retrospect, to try to use these tools since they were broken in some subtle way at the time. I'm frustrated and need a little hand-holding. I think I might have earned a little bit of it from the years of kernel related help I've given out :-). I've not focused on printing on FreeBSD much at all since until the latest color printer I got, good old lpr/lpd has been enough. I'm not sure what information to provide. I do understand its need. I'm somewhat new to the image processing side of printing, so am acting like a totale newbie because in some ways I am :-). I'm doing multiple printer/scanner projects at the same time. I have a network connected HP LaserJet 2200 that's working great under both lpr and cups. I have a network connected HP DeskJet 5850 that's not working at all under lpr/FreeBSD, but I can at least print test pages on under CUPS. It works great from Windows. I also have a usb connected HP OfficeJet 4200 scanner/printer/fax that I'm trying to get scanning working on, but that's on a completely different machine/different story :-).
