Thanks for the reply, Doug. This looks like it may be the ticket. If it works as advertised, $39 is *nothing*. After spending many tens of hours trying to get wine to work for me, the purchase of Crossover office was a godsend! I think this product may be in the same vein. I want to print pictures, not mess with printing software! Thanks again; I'll post my results back to the list once I've had a chance to test.

Hi,
I've had much the same problem with Gimp 2.2.4 and the Epson Stylus
Photo 2100 running under Linux Mandrake LE2005.
However, while waiting for a proper colour management solution to arrive
in gimp/gutenprint, in the interim I've been able to get a pretty good
match between monitor and printer output  using  Turboprint
(http://www.turboprint.de/english.html).
The only thing is that it costs (30 euros, 39 dollars) for the full
capabilities.

Hope that may help.

If you do decide to go with turboprint, a couple of tips -

You *should* follow the recommendations to adjust Saturation and Gamma in Gimp. Otherwise Gimp images that print with perfectly good colour matching in other apps, say OODraw, come out very wishy-washy when printed directly from Gimp itself.

Not all apps allow the full range of printer adjustments; use xtpconfig if you need these.
