5.3.3
29 August 2019

Quality drivers for most major inkjet printers.

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.

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.

The software as such does not seem to be the problem, but there is a known problem with the packaging of the installer.

We managed to get these drivers installed in El Capitan by

1) (re)start in recovery mode (hold cmd-r while booting or hold option and choose recovery volume)

2) start terminal from menu and disable rootless with command “csrutil disable” . there will be some feedback confirming you disabled this safety feature.

3) reboot normally

4) do not double-click your installer but go in package content (right click > view package content)

5) find inside the package Contents>Packages>Gutenprint 5.pkg and use that package to install (double click it). This time install should go normally.

6) I suppose you would like to enable rootless again since it is a safety feature after all with 1) to 3) using “csrutil enable” this time

I suppose you would like to try this only if you can’t wait for a general fix and on a test computer first if available.

Yeah, seems to be code signing issue related to Apple's integration of System Integrity Protection (SIP). Pre2 out now and works fine.

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

Great project to use printers longer than apple or printer-companies support their modells. In 10.9.x the printer system changed and Kyocera did not updated their old printers. Before it was a native driver watermarks and so on a lot of features, i current 10.9 or 10.10 it a normal postscript driver. Instant printing on complex sheets was not a problem, but with 10.9.x i waited and waited, sometimes i must restart my printer. With these drivers i have speed like in the old days with 10.4. or the good old 10.6.x

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.
