Welcome to Gutenprint!

Gutenprint Functionality

Gutenprint is a package of high quality printer drivers for Linux, BSD, Solaris, Macintosh OS X, IRIX, and other UNIX-alike operating systems. In many cases, these drivers rival or exceed the OEM drivers in quality and functionality. Our goal is to produce the highest possible output quality from all supported printers. To that end, we have done extensive work on screening algorithms, color generation, and printer feature utilization. We are continuing our work in all of these areas to produce ever higher quality results, particularly on the ubiquitous, inexpensive inkjet printers that are nonetheless capable of nearly photographic output quality.

Printing support for The GIMP is only one small part of what Gutenprint does, and indeed, the Print plugin may eventually be removed from the core Gutenprint distribution. Gutenprint printer drivers can be used with all common UNIX print spooling systems, by means of either CUPS or Ghostscript.

Here is a list of selected features:

  • Support for over 1300 inkjet, dye sublimation, and laser printers.
  • An enhanced Print plug-in for the GIMP.
  • A native CUPS driver, providing simple configuration and operation with CUPS.
  • An IJS-based Ghostscript driver that greatly simplifies installation for Ghostscript versions 6.53 and newer, when used with Foomatic.
  • Extensive output adjustments offer a tremendous range of adjustment to match color, brightness, and contrast.
  • Support for a wide range of printer output resolutions, permitting you to trade off printing speed against output quality.
  • 16-bit precision, producing virtually stepless output.
  • Bundled utilities to perform basic maintenance for Epson and Lexmark printers.
  • Extensive documentation for both users and developers.
