Software :: Gutenprint (Gimp) -- Change Default Paper Size?
Jan 6, 2010
Can't believe I can't find this out through searches, but I can't, like to know how to change the default paper size when printing from Gimp usingutenprint. LinuxMint 7 (Gloria) (Ubuntu Jaunty), Gnome 2.26.1, Kernel 2.6.28-11
I am using the Gnome desktop in Lenny 5.03The default Gedit paper size is "US Letter", which is almost right for my HP Laserjet 4L, except that about .5 inch at the top and .25 inch at the left margin are cut off.I have defined a "Custom Size" under File -> Page Setup -> Manage Custom Sizes... with margin settings that solve the problem, but this "Custom Size" only remains the default Paper Size for printing until Gedit is closed.Using what appears to be the same gnome dialog from epiphany and evolution, the Papersize settings stick, but not from Gedit. I cannot locate any configuration file to edit, and nothing in the gconf editor seems to apply.
I am helping someone print wedding invitations from out Ubuntu machine, and I am wondering, how do I choose the perfect size paper, which is 5.25 inches by 8.25 inches, in the printing properties menu?
I'm wondering if it's possible to change the default size of pdf and image icons on my whole filesystem because it doesn't look proportional to the other icons like the folders and text files and I really don't want to stretch each one of them everytime.
Here's an example:
The other way the size could be fixed is by going to edit > preferences > preview and just do never for each drop down but I don't want to lose the preview effect.
I have a CUPS server with several end users. The problem is that the printer stops printing if someone trys to print in letter size. (You have to insert letter paper or abort the print job on the printer.)
No, I'm looking for a way to force printing jobs to A4 paper size.
how to do this? Maybe with custom cups filters, but I don't know how this is done.
I cannot figure out how to make my desktop icons smaller. I know I can right click and "stretch icon", but that only resizes them individually. If I can change the size of them individually,Im thinking I can also, somehow change the default size, of all of them at once.I am currently working on some graphics projects for the observatory and it's easiest to save them to my desktop for now.but they are so big ,that before i know it, they are overlapping each other. stretching them to a smaller size one by one is a time killer.Usually I dont keep icons on my desktop, only the icons for my external drives and the like.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10, the latest version, into my computer. But I notice that the font is small when browsing the web using Firefox. I need to have a bigger font because of my shortsightedness.
My laptop has a small flickering area at the bottom of the screen, about 1 cm high. It's a hardware problem.It's very annoying but I can just put a bit of dark paper over it. I would like to change the ubuntu (10.04) defaults so that the bottom of the screen is never used - I can change some windows, but is there a global way to stop all windows, menus etc from using that lower area
The "[SOLVED]" attribute to the How to set defaulter size in RHEL5 thread notwithstanding, the problem really is not solved. I've set my default language to both "C" and to "EN-us" and the problem is that absolutely every single time I print, I have to meander through varying layout print menus to find the "A4" setting and change it to "letter". That, or sacrifice the last two lines on every page because the default size is larger than the actual size. Bad default. It is not unique to Red Hat/CentOS, of course. Same problem exists on Debian and SuSE, too. Why is this such an intractable issue? Why is there not some simple and obvious way to say, "squish all instances of A4 (or "letter") and replace with "letter" (or "A4")!"?
I'd like to make Gnome Terminal always start using this command line: gnome-terminal --geometry=92x49+0+0 However, when I right-click the icon either in Start Menu Favorites or in Application Browser, there is no 'Properties' option where I can configure this. Nor does there appear to be any option in Gnome Terminal Profile Preferences (other than to run something other than the shell when starting Terminal). Anyone know how make this modification so Gnome Terminal will always start in the same size and position?
this should be easy but I dont know which option to use. I want to make a flier with Gimp, learned how to add fonts that are better than the crappy ones that come by default, but now I want to add images but want them to automatically scale to a size that I specify with a square I create by left clicking. I dont want to have to resize the entire image after measuring, I just want it to shrink/expand to fit an area that I specify for it.
today I upgraded via official testing repository Gnome to version 3.18. After this, icons on desktop and nautilus are bigger, than before. Next thing, gaps between icons are smaller than before. I tried change theme to default (Adwaita), then run gtk-update-icon-cache, but without result.
Normal view - icons are big for this view. URL....
Small view - icons are still big for this view. URL...
How can I change icons size and gaps size? Or is it bug for this version?
The default image viewer in 10.10 (eog) has met its match, a ~500MB image of the moon. I just thought it was kind of funny, while browsing the software center for an image viewer that could handle it, I noticed the description of the one installed by default and thought it was kind of funny, so I snapped this screenshot and thought I'd share it with you guys. By the way I have 4 GB of RAM and can view the image just fine in GIMP, just thought this was kind of funny. Screenshot
The first thing I do when I launch Gimp is to make the Rectangle Select Tool the active selection.The default selection is the Paintbrush Tool. I find this selection dangerous because it's easy to paint over an image that I do not want marked up. There must be some sort of config file that can be altered. I am using Gimp 2.6.8 under Ubuntu Linux.
This was my first attempt at compiling a program from source. Maybe I should have picked something easier but I am trying to install gutenprint (formerly gimp print)so I can use my new Epson scanner/printer.Should I remove this thing and start over?
I'm trying to setup a print server on Debian Lenny. This dedicated server is connected to an USB printer (Epson Stylus Office BX300f).
I've successfully installed cups and the guttenprint drivers from the repositories but then realized that I needed to upgrade the printer drivers if I wanted to get support for my USB printer. Thus, I built and installed the latest version of Guttenprint (5.2.6) from the sources but this procedure has not added any new driver (ppd files) into cups. I've read that cups-genppd and cups-genppdupdate must be used in order to generate the necessary ppd files and update them into the cups folders.
Well, I can find cups-genppd.5.0 and cups-genppdupdate.5.0 in /usr/sbin but I wonder if these binaries are related to the old drivers (gutenprint 5.0.2) and not to the new ones (gutenprint 5.2.6).
Anyway, I'm a bit messed with this stuff. I've read the man pages but there are very few examples explaining how to upgrade drivers in cups.
If you had Gimp 2.6 (with gimp-plugin-registry installed) and installed Gimp 2.7 to try its new goodies, but Layer Effects are not showing, and when executing "gimp" from console you get these *nasty* errors:
Code: This is a development version of GIMP. Debug messages may appear here. gimp-user-install: migrating from /home/user/.gimp-2.6 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/layerfx.py", line 23, in <module> import gimp, gimpplugin, math ImportError: No module named gimp .....
If you haven't install the 2.7 version yet. Before upgrading, backup "python" directory and then just restore it after installing 2.7.
Some of you may have had with issues after installing GIMP on Lucid Lynx 10.04. Which may be directly related to "gimp-help-en", which could prevent you from installing other applications and preforming system tasks. If so, use this method to fix it.
Process: (Terminal > $ sudo apt-get install gimp)
1. After installing Gimp go to the terminal:
2. Then load up the language support application:
3. Then it will ask you to install the "gimp-help-en", confirm it.
I think this issue is directly linked to a systems with multiple languages, but I haven't been able to test this theory out yet.
I usually change the default bottom panel settings so that I have it on the right hand edge of the screen, 100 pixels wide and auto hide checked. Until now, this has been fine, but with ubuntu 10.4, it has an awful banded look.
So, I tried using a solid colour and a custom background image and although this improves matters, there is still a banded section at the top that should not be there. When you have a few apps running, the taskbar shows the active app normally, but the background apps are banded again. Is there a way to fix this? It also makes the apps difficult to read.
I recently upgraded my laptop from 10.04, to 10.10. -- And in so doing reinstalled the OS from scratch, and letting the system pick the partition sizes.
Code: My system: 2GB RAM 160 GB HDD HP 6910p
Here's the question: The Installer set aside 6GB as Swap space, leaving 154GB as a / partition for everything. I had always thought 2GB was plenty, or as a general rule twice the Physical Memory size, which would only be 4GB swap, not 6.
Can / should I reclaim some of that swap space, if so how much. -- I can using tools like GParted to resize the partitions. -- Or just leave it as is. Unfortunately, the Ubuntu 10.10 installed did not seem to use GParted, so it was a little harder to set up initially.
