This is a way to use Gutenprint as a Ghostscript driver without necessity of patching and recompiling Ghostscript. We’ve rewritten the Postscript output driver, converted the data in the Epson driver to be data-driven, and much more. It was originally developed as a plug-in for the GIMP , but later became a more general tool for use by other programs and operating systems macOS and Windows. This package is required for users running Mac OS X “Jaguar” as it provides full support for printing from all “Carbon” applications. It also offers support additional printers; please consult the release notes for specifics.
