    Thank you so much for adding Canon bubble jet printers to Gutenprint. I upgraded the OS on my laptop to El Capitan, and then found I couldn't print on my Canon Pixma ip4000 or my ip1000. Canon doesn't make El Capitan drivers for either one. I like having 10.7 on my iMac, and wanted to leave it that way, since I don't use it to access the internet. So I had visions of having to buy a newer printer dedicated to my laptop. Thankfully, somewhere in the back of my head I remembered "gimp driver", did a Google search, and installed the latest Gutenprint with no problems. Now I can use the same single printer for either OS! And I am looking forward to finally being able to put it on a network.

    Thank-you, Team Gutenprint. My Olympus P-10 dye-sub printer was gathering dust for years ... until today. As I know well, Olympus dropped support for it years ago. The Gutenprint Olympus P-10 printer driver for Mac OS X El Capitan worked like a charm. To my surprise and relief, the printer still worked. Print cartridge OK. Paper OK. I was able to print a batch of photos to the 6"x4" photo paper. Only two small quirks with the printer driver UI : (1) It did not auto-select 6"x4" paper, the only size of paper available. (2) It did not retain the previous paper size selection, hence had to select 6"x4" paper for every print job. Otherwise, great work supporting an old printer, which I can now operate until I run out of supplies. Thanks, Tim

    Saved my neck. Big time. Straightforward application to help you cope with drivers quirks and tweaks nowadays. It helped me recover my old, reliable Epson printer (physically attached to my Windows 7 PC) for use with OSX El Capitan. Excellent piece of software!
