Gutenprint is a suite ofÂ printer drivers that may be used with most common UNIX print spooling systems, including CUPS, lpr, LPRng, or others. TheseÂ drivers provideÂ high quality printing for UNIX (including Macintosh OS X 10.2 and above) and Linux systems that in many cases equal or exceed proprietary vendor-suppliedÂ drivers inÂ quality and functionality, and can be used for demanding printing tasks requiring flexibility andÂ high quality.
This softwareÂ package includes an enhanced Print plug-in for the GIMP that replaces the plug-in packaged with the GIMP, and Ghostscript and CUPSÂ drivers, as well as Foomatic data supporting the Ghostscript driver.
