[RESOLVED] No Printing from GIMP

Hello #!ers
Up to date Statler 10
I recently noticed that I can't print from GIMP (think i must've printed something in the last 2 months).
This is on both PC & ideapad.
Printing OK with other apps, ooffice, hp device manager, gtklp etc....
& GIMP printing OK with a live  openSUSE on usb.
I've just installed  gutenprint & this does print, but the normal GIMP print option, goes through all usual processes,
ie progress bar & the paper through the printer, but nothing printed, also  print preview & print to PDF, blank result.
No clues on either Debian or GIMP sites.
Has anyone any ideas?

Re: [RESOLVED] No Printing from GIMP

Just tried printing something from both Inkscape and GIMP, and each worked.

The only thing I can think of is that if you didn't run the Cups installer in the "cb-welcome" script, there might be something missing there...

Re: [RESOLVED] No Printing from GIMP

Thanks for reply merelyjim.........

thats whats so odd Cups seems OK, & GIMP is talking to the printer
the paper just feeds through, together with a blank output from print preview,
print to file & PDF makes me think its something else missing for my GIMP.

I've done a complete remove &  install of GIMP on both machines, but still no
output from the normal print option.

I am an avid app installer, just a hint of a recommend & I'm in synaptic
(quite a shock when I open  an XFCE session, all those things in the menu, alt-menu a great hider of stuff)
so perhaps there's some conflict or been a removal of something.

GIMP-gutenprint works as do other printing apps, so not a huge problem, will keep probing,
& probably it will resolve itself over time with GIMP updates.

Re: [RESOLVED] No Printing from GIMP

The problem seems to be caused by a new version of libcairo2 pulled in by Iceweasel 4. Here is a cross reference to my post at the #! Forums thread Objections to Iceweasel 4.0 packages?.

Now i know, why inkscape (linux) wouldn't print yesterday, so i had to use inkscape (windows) instead ... hmm
Will try tomorrow again. Thanks for your observations! wink

( I did have a poke in Debian Bugs, I'll have to search better next time,
not that I would have known what to do ).
