The picture just comes out pink. There should be no pink in this picture.
I have lots of trashed pages printed with Gimp, one with LibreOffice tex,
one with LibreOffice Draw. There are also thin vertical white lines
print. It looks fine if Print Preview. All settings on both file
are set to "Best". RGB color.
There are a lot of possibilities - it can be GIMP, Linux, your printer
or other stuff.
I would try this:
- export the image as a JPEG, in the original size and good quality.
- import that image into a Libre Office text document with the size of
your paper as the document size
- print that from Libre Office.
If this comes out OK, GIMP is the culprit, if not, then it's Linux or
your printer. These white stripes can be caused by a not properly
aligned print head.
I hope this helps!
