I use Gimp in both Windows XP and Linux (Ubuntu 8.10). Since I have yet to
find a cups driver for my Canon i960, I purchased TurboPrint, and, thankfully,
it allows full function of my printer under Ubuntu. In XP, however, Gimp will
not print photos forme, refusing to retain the page layout instructions I
specify (4.6 results in a 4 x 6 image on letter sized paper).
I have posted about this on various fora, and, apparently, there are many who
share my problem.
If you have a solution, please post it so that I can continue to rave about
all aspects of Gimp which I like very much.
