    Running opensuse 12.1. Tried packaged gutenprint 5.2.7 but pro9000 driver didn't work.
    I compiled using the 5.2.7 tarball from sourceforge but experienced same problems as opensuse packaged driver. It prints text on the cups test page OK but colors are shifted right about 1 cm. It also prints photographs from the gimp gutenprint ui but they are badly distorted and the colors are all wrong.
    The printer works fine, I've tested using turboprint.
    Is it something I'm doing or is the driver broken?
    I have a pro9000 and a I9100 if the canon developer needs a test mule.
    Thanks, Mark

     
  • Thank you for the feedback.
    Can you try the 5.2.8-pre1 driver?

    I would love to have you as a "test mule" (chortle) for these interesting devices: I don't have access to any Pro series or i series myself.

    Please contact me either via the gimp-print mailing list or directly using aikishugyo at google's mail service.
