More from the "Desktop-Linux-has-come-a-long-way" category

So I needed a high quality print of a JPG...

I have an Epson 915 PhotoStyler which I have previously used from Windows...

I plug it into the USB of my Ubuntu Thinkpad.

I run the Gnome Desktop printer wizard to create a printer.

In the Gimp, I tell the print dialog about my Epson Printer. I pause a few minutes to marvel at all the functionality the Gimp provides...

Then I print...

...and it just works.

The way things ought to be but so seldom are.

Wonderful.
