I do not want to be rude and I know that is not polite to answer a question with other questions but anyway, forgive my curiosity please, some questions pops up in my mind: * why ask for support of a commercial product here? * Are we in any way connected with this proprietary software? * Should we? * Why should we support any proprietary software for free (as in beer) when they gain the real money? * did you ask for support to the proprietary software first? * if you asked for support first did they answer you and what? I understand that all started with buying that printer and because of that you are now involvend involuntary in all this driver mess but I really think that: * IMHO creating some "driver" that needs some software support installed on all graphics softwares is all but a great idea * you really should contact the printer and/or the driver software authors for this kind of support and specifically ask for GIMP support since I doubt that that kind of support comes from the various graphic software authors this is my not very humble opinion and it is _not_ connected with any GIMP devs opinion and sorry if I seem to be rude anyway but this was not my intention. I hope you are understanding my points. -- Marco Ciampa I know a joke about UDP, but you might not get it. +------------------------+ | GNU/Linux User #78271 | | FSFE fellow #364 | +------------------------+ _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: email@example.com List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
