I have a new vista machine with SP1 on, with GIMP Image Editor running, but I can't print from it. How do I do this?

Can you print from other applications?

What about other image editing applications?

Do you get any error messages? What happens when you try to print?

Everyting else prints. But GIMP, just shows a blank screen on print preview and then prints a blank page. No error messages. Other Image editors work

It may be a problem with gimp for vista s same version works on my XP PC. Is there a printing plugin?

Sometimes due to slight incompatibility, vista thinks it has stopped responding while its looking for fonts,as it takes a long time.
Let it run and be patient. Its worth the wait.

what? I can run GIMP but not print from it

  mrwoowoo 20:05 26 Apr 08

Ok steady on.
Have you tried running it in compatability mode for xp? May run better like that.

OK. Point taken. I was a bit rude, sorry. Compatibility mode was better, but print was nothing like original still

Unless you have version 2.4 you need 'GTK+ 2 Run Time Enviroment' for it to run correctly on vista.
Obviously 2.4 has it pre installed.
There is a link to this but it's xp?,although it may still work.
Easier to install the latest version (2.4) if you haven't already.

Got 2.4 plus GTK+ 2 RTE already. Everything else works, just not printing
