Re: Print Configuration and the Epson Stylus Photo 750

Thanks for the replies.  I tried magicfilter, utilizing Abe and Stewart's tips concerning the serial 
port settings.  However, I was still unsuccessful in getting any output.  I think it is because the 
Stylus Photo 750 is a 6-color printer.  Respectively, they had success with the Stylus 800 
and 600--both 4-color printers. 

I am now attempting to work with gimp-print as Tuomas suggested.  The .deb files I saw were 
for i386, so I had to opt for the source code.  I've been having some difficulty with ld during 
the make.  Since I'm not sure it is strictly gimp-print or Debian-powerpc related, I'll mention 
that I get the message "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgimpui" during make.  However if I issue 
ldconfig -v,  I see the following:

             libgimpui.so.1 => libgimpui.so.1.0.4

What could cause such an error given the above indication?  

In any event, I'll head over to the gimp-print list.

They even include a patched Ghostscript driver (with a .deb build script for debian woody) that does a .deb for that ghostscript automatically. It is a little tricky to setup as there are a lot of options for gs to pass, but it has instructions and they have a mailing list too :o) <br>
