Re: I need help with printing from gimp and sodipodi!!!

i always first export from sodipodi to png with a normal printer resolution and then print it

at least this is a workaround ;-)

this is strange

for gimp, you should edit the command gimp uses to print - this at least i needed (remove almost all other parameters and use only lpr -Pprintername instead - and make sure gimp-print is installed)

Re: I need help with printing from gimp and sodipodi!!!

just tried to print in sodipodi using the same command

the outlines are printed ok, but gradients are not at all printed (white)

i have a black/white laser, so maybe it's some problem that it must be set to support gradients - no idea

but in general printing from sodipodi works also

lpr -Pprintername
