Gutenprint printer drivers

Updated 27-Dec-2023

Previously named Gimp Print, Gutenprint is a high quality package of printer drivers for CUPS on Linux, Macintosh OS X, and other POSIX-compliant operating systems. This project also maintains an enhanced Print plug-in for GIMP 2.x from the same code base.

Gutenprint includes a large number of printer drivers for Canon, Epson, Lexmark, Sony, Olympus, and PCL printers for use with CUPS and GIMP (Ghostscript).

Gutenprint was formerly called Gimp-Print. Gimp-Print 4.2.7 (the last Gimp-Print 4.2 release) is still available for distribution, but is no longer supported. You may install both Gimp-Print 4.2.7 and Gutenprint 5.0, 5.1, 5.2, and/or 5.3 concurrently and choose which to use. We recommend that users use either the latest 5.2 release or the new 5.3; older versions of Gutenprint are no longer supported.

Best gotten from the apt source:

sudo apt install printer-driver-gutenprint
