Subject: [Gimp-user] Problem printing in Windows XP (sp3) w/ HP printer.
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.
Have you already checked GIMP's paper/document size? (File > Page Setup).
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
