"Though installing the Gimp-Print software was not a trivial
undertaking, the results were impressive. Come along as Joe
prepares his Linux box to use an Epson Stylus Color 880
"I admit it: now and then, I feel a twinge of platform envy. For
example, I would have preferred to build a Linux box for my
daughter and her family this past summer. But I had to use Windows
98 so they could run their favorite game (NASCAR 3) and its
hardware accoutrements: steering wheel, gas, and brake pedals."
"More recently, my girlfriend wanted to print some beautiful
pictures she had taken with a Sony Digital Mavica camera. She asked
if she could take some of the images to a friend's Windows machine
to print them on a fancy Epson printer. A few days later, I saw a
special at OfficeMax on an Epson Stylus Color 880. It boasted an
amazing 2,880 by 720 dpi resolution, and only cost $149. The itch
began to burn."
"I had seen a blurb on LinuxWorld.com a week or two earlier
about drivers for Epson printers, but I wasn't sure if GIMP
supported that particular model. When I got home, I ran it down and
found myself on the Gimp-Print project page. Praise Baud, a driver
for the Epson 880 was there! The next day, I returned to the store
and bought an Epson."
