Gutenprint overview

Gutenprint is a suite of printer drivers that may be used with most common UNIX print spooling systems, including CUPS, lpr, LPRng, or others. Gutenprint currently supports over 2000 printer models. These drivers provide high quality printing for UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh OS X (10.6 and above) systems. Gutenprint includes CUPS and Foomatic drivers, and an enhanced Print plug-in for GIMP that replaces the print plug-in packaged with the GIMP distribution.

I'm trying to get my old macbook Air (OS Sierra) to print to an old HP 4550. I have it direct connected to a USB port via an adapter cable. I can find the 4550 printer (Gutenprint 5.3.3) but it will not print. Any suggestions?

Great project to use printers longer than apple or printer-companies support their modells.

The latest Apple driver update for HP printers actually broke printing to my HP LJ 6MP. The Gutenprint driver saved the day!

If it wasn't for Gutenprint my old HP printer would have been long sold (due to very bad driver support from HP concerning the mac platform). If you look at companies not updating drivers and people throwing their printers in the trash it's all an insane waste of resources. Gutenprint helps to not follow this insanity.

Remember that though these are excellent drivers... your printer's proprietary/vendor ICC profiles will likely not be completely accurate. So for professional work you will probably need to have custom ICC profiles created for your specific printer. Gutenprint does mention this in their manual in the "Color Correction" section... "Profiles provided by the printer vendor are calibrated for the vendor's driver, which may not be identical to Gutenprint's calibration." Just a 'heads-up' in case your prints do not look exactly like your monitor. It is probably not your monitor calibration or printer... just your ICC profiles. Thanks for the drivers Gutenprint!

Why is 5.2.5 being highlighted again? Something must be wrong with the update feed. The newest binary version is 5.2.6-pre1, and the newest source version is 5.2.6. There is no binary of 5.2.6 for OS X yet.

Superb! Superb! Superb! Remember to download and use the "Gutenprint Utility for EPSON Inkjet Printers" which makes it possible to clean, align, etc. the printer heads via the Terminal and simply typing in one letter for any process (i.e. extremely simple... so don't let the idea of using the Terminal put you off). And... check out "Ink Level" which is a small utility that allows you to check your ink levels.

This software is great. THANK YOU! Now I don't have to buy a new printer. (Just because the manufacturer (HP) is to lazy to supply new drivers and wants customers to throw away printers after 2 years.

Hurrah For these DRIVERS !!! ...I still own/use a very reliable Epson Printer I bought brand new in 1997. I grew SOOOOO dag gone sick and tired of having to finagle and coerce the system drivers to work each and every time I updated to the newest version of OSX 10.5 (10.5.7 this time around). In these tough economic times (in case anyone has forgotten), WHY in tarnation should I have to run out and buy a new printer when mine works perfectly fine if/when/ever the system drivers will operate correctly. Out of sheer frustration, I came SOOOOO close today to scrapping my whole updated system in favor of reverting to my OSX 10.5.6 (of which I had absolutely no issues printing at all once I spent a few days finagling and coercing it to work from the previous update) system backup because this time around I just could not get them to work in OSX 10.5.7. Then "whola !" I discovered these drivers upon which I happily got rid of those old pieces of junk and feel quite certain that I will never have to revisit this nonsense ever again. ***Whew*** !!! :)

I have to say, printing has gotten MUCH faster on my Epson R200 with the last few Gutenprint updates. It used to take FOREVER to print a single page on "Standard" quality. Now it only takes a few seconds! Plus it has drivers for my old HP LaserJet too! Only thing that annoys me is the "Common Settings 1, Common Settings 2, Extra Settings 3" or whatever, as it's difficult to find a specific setting hidden in all of the generic-named menus.

Good update for Epson. But since apple use GP and Cups to print, my old HP does not work correctly. I use instead a generic postscript driver.

I have an Epson RX-580 and I lost the driver CD, so for me to print directly onto a CD, I had to search forever for the drivers, with this I am able to print from the print dialog without the need for extra software and it has many extra features that arent available in the stand Epson drivers. Works great!

This made it possible for me to continue using an older Epson printer (which still prints excellently and which I had recently bought cartridges). Thank you! Also their forums are extremely helpful. And to think these are free!
