gimp-print-4.2.5: description + notes

GIMP-Print is the print facility for The Gimp, and in addition a suite of drivers that may be used with common UNIX spooling systems using GhostScript or CUPS. These drivers provide printing quality for UNIX/Linux in many cases equal to or better than proprietary vendor-supplied drivers, and can be used for many of the most demanding printing tasks.

The GIMP-Print user's manual is installed in /usr/freeware/share/gimp-print/doc, available in HTML and PDF formats. Additional documentation, as well as a FAQ, is also installed by default under that directory.

Please note: the CUPS driver and the GIMP print plug-in are marked for installation by default. Conflicts during the installation phase will arise if either fw_cups or fw_gimp is not installed. These subsystems are optional, and can be skipped without compromising fw_gimp-print.
