I'm running foo2zjs under cups and cups prints from gimp, but gimp-print won't. I never wasted a second on it.

IIRC, the default printer came up as something stupid, but once you fix that it goes.

Thanks for the reply...don't understand cups yet. after Contrl/p I select my printer and print for now. Don't know IIRC either ....a chat type?

There's often a system-config-printer script and there's always

http://localhost:631

It's manageable from there
