Re: Printing from Gimp
I installed the cupsys-bsd package and my results changed a little. Now
the print job shows up in "completed jobs" in the CUPS admin page with a
job name of (stdin) but nothing gets printed. The spooler icon shows up
for about 5 seconds and then closes too.

I have an HP OfficeJet 5500 set up to print through CUPS. I can get it

getting it to print from Gimp.
There are no gimpprint drivers available for the OJ 5500, at least I
can't find any, and I have the 1.6.2 version of HPIJS installed, so I
downloaded the correct .ppd file and set Gimp up to use the printer as a
PostScript Level2 printer and browsed to the .ppd file and showed Gimp
where it is. There is an activity bar that runs across the bottom of
page showing Gimp getting ready to print, but nothing prints. The
spooler never shows any print jobs and neither does the CUPS printer or
print jobs page when connecting to it by browser. (All jobs except for
the Gimp jobs show up here and print successfully)
I am obviously configuring something wrong in Gimp, or I am missing a
software component somewhere, but what?
What print command is gimp using?
I install cupsys-bsd and tell everything to print using lp (not lpr as
many things default to). Gimp prints fine using this method (never
tried any other method in fact).
The printer command in the Gimp interface is "lp -s -dPrinter_Name -oraw".
