FAQ_OS_X

Welcome to Gutenprint!

Downloading Gutenprint

Please download Gutenprint from our project page.

Macintosh Users

Macintosh OS X users should download files whose names end in ".dmg". These are pre-built packages that can be installed by opening the file and following instructions. You can find information and download links for the latest release at http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php

  • Users of printers connected via USB (either directly or with USB-parallel converters) may want to download "usbtb-1.0.17.uni.dmg". This is an alternative USB driver that may provide better performance and functionality with certain printers and systems. If you are unable to print to a directly connected printer, or printing stops partway, this driver may solve your problem. It may also help if your printer is printing extremely slowly, but there are many reasons why printers may be slow and this will not resolve all of them. This is also a universal binary.
  • Users of Macintosh OS 10.2 ("Jaguar") who wish to print from legacy applications that generate PostScript should install "espgs-7.07.1.ppc.dmg". This is a PPC-only binary. You do not need to download the source package "espgs-7.07.1-source.tar.bz2".

All Other Users

Users of other operating systems, such as Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, HP-UX, etc. should download the main package, named "gutenprint-5.0.0.tar.bz2". This is a "source tarball"; it contains the source code for the package and must be compiled to produce binary executables. The command to unpack this file is

tar xjvf gutenprint-5.0.0.tar.bz2

On some systems, you may have to issue the following command:

bunzip2 -c gutenprint-5.0.0.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -

This will create a subdirectory named gutenprint-5.0.0. You should read the files named README and NEWS in that subdirectory for further instructions.

CVS access

You may view the CVS web interface. This facility is known to be erratic, and we have no control over it.

If you want to use CVS source code, these are the commands (assuming you have CVS installed.) ;

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@gimp-print.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gimp-print login

cvs -z3
-d:pserver:anonymous@gimp-print.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gimp-print co -P print
