Thanks Rolf,
I'm not sure whether you overlooked that I'd already done that, or whether what you're
suggesting is somehow different from what I did.

I had not understood what you did with LibreOfice, I assume they came out OK.


What happens when you print from GIMP into a file instead of the printer? Is the output file looking right?

    Hi Helen,

        I've been trying for days to print a small 4x6"  picture that
        I drew in gimp.

        I've even spent quite a bit of $ putting new print cartridges
        in my printer, even
        though they were not empty.  Just trying to cover everything I
        can think of.

        The picture just comes out pink.  There should be no pink in
        this picture.
        I have lots of trashed pages printed with Gimp, one with
        LibreOffice tex,
        one with LibreOffice Draw.  There are also thin vertical white
        lines on the
        print.   It looks fine if Print Preview.  All settings on both
        file and printer
        are set to "Best".   RGB color.

    There are a lot of possibilities - it can be GIMP, Linux, your
    printer or other stuff.

    I would try this:

    - export the image as a JPEG, in the original size and good quality.

    - import that image into a Libre Office text document with the
    size of your paper as the document size

    - print that from Libre Office.

    If this comes out OK, GIMP is the culprit, if not, then it's Linux
    or your printer. These white stripes can be caused by a not
    properly aligned print head.

    I hope this helps!
