Hi, Gracia

Here are some quotes below from Gimp posts back in Feb. '06.



P.S. I don't remember off-hand if some of the adjustments aren't available in the evaluation version of turboprint (and they've likely changed some things since I got my copy, of course)

I am getting the same dull rotten prints from turboprint's evaluation copy as I get from gimp's regular prints (which is why I'm trying turboprint).

I use SuSE 10 & gimp 2.2.7. Any special tricks I don't know about???


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.



Hi Paul,

Sorry you're not having much joy so far.
I don't know that I can offer any specific advice - I do remember suffering a similar problem to yours at first which did get resolved, perhaps by following the instructions in the manual religiously, but now I don't recall how. I do find the printed colours I get are a close match to the monitor - as judged by eye - although I agree, that's only an interim solution till there's proper colour management in Gimp.

However, what I would recommend is submitting a bug report to


The people there are very prompt in replying and helpful - I found, for example, that I could not print on two of the better quality Epson papers with my Epson Stylus Photo 2100; and within a few days received a new PPD file that solved it.
