The other day I wanted to print a single 4 by 6 photo on the all-in-one printer Lizzie gave me last year. I was doing this from my Linux computer. I assumed that this would be tricky because this is one of those machines that’s gotta have a complex and strange printer driver and maybe it would not work on my humble Linux box.
I don’ t know why I had such a stoopid thought. I got the image up in The Gimp, opened “Printer Properties” and specified that I wanted a 4 by 6 photo quality, and hit “Print.” And it was done.
Linux in Exile has a post on Windows Printing and how much of a pain it is. There are some Windows Jingoists giving Mr. Exile a hard time. Have a look: Frustrated by Windows printing
