But photo printing on the RiscPC has gone the way of the Dodo.



That's rather a sweeping statement.

Have you looked at the Gimp-Print option from


Martin Hodgson

The latest Canon printers listed are two years out-of-date. There is no mention of the Canon iP series.

My S4500 needs new print heads, which have to be ordered specially, they are no longer a stock item at Harvey Normans. By today's standards, the S4500 does NOT provide photoprint quality, not from a Riscos driver, not from a Windows driver. It cannot print borderless.

My BJC-7100s corroded due to the type of inks being used.

I still have the Photodesk drivers for both, so I don't need Gimp ones.
