Now I have tried the my old CANON 7100 on the RISCPC using the 
supplied driver to see if this was an issue.

Again the GimpPrint version prints out but the GutenPrint one doesn't.

I did make sure that I used the correct driver type for each version. 
i.e Old Gimp one and a separate GutenPrint driver.

So it looks as if there maybe an issue with the Canon drivers.

I do not have a Epson to try it with unfortunately.


Using a Iyonix PC and RISC OS 5.13, the thinking persons alternative 
operating system to Microsoft Windows.
