New to list, but been using GIMP for awhile... got a new printer, an HP
Officejet 8600 pro plus. Works nicely (so far) in Linux Debian Squeeze,
but do dual boot to Windows XP (sp3)... & been trying to print a 4" x 6"
color photo, no matter the settings, I get a "paper mismatch" error.
Even called HP support... but while waiting for the tech support person
to do some research on this problem... */was/* able to print said image
in Ifranview (a free windows graphic program)... I apparently don't have
the Windows Paint program... which the tech person wanted me to try).
So apparently there may be a bug in that version (2.8) of GIMP, ported
to Windows. I am using GIMP 2.6.10, in Linux, so I do not really know if
this is a version particular problem... or just a Windows platform
problem... (I've considered updating, building 2.8 on Linux, but looks
like one is supposed uninstall the old version, not sure if this is
really necessary; I've had problems uninstalling software before in
Linux... (/sometimes takes out more than one wants; like the desktop/!),
but better safe than sorry; advise welcome).
Thanks much for any help in resolving these problems.
