prints 4 copies
Hi All,

I just upgraded to the most current version of gimp (windows 7 user with an HP color laserjet 3600N) but I was using version 3.4 or so before I upgraded.

The reason I upgraded was because I suddenly started having a problem when printing on my color HP 3600n printer I would get 4 copies. If I print to my other HP b&w printer it prints just one copy.

Any thoughts? I have had the printer for years and have just started using gimp on it with in the past year/year and a half in an office environment where I use gimp on a daily basis and this just started for no apparent reason. My upgraded version of gimp does the same thing.

Thanks for any help.

RE: prints 4 copies
The "most current version of Gimp" was, until recently, v2.6.x. v2.8 is out but I'm not sure there are Windows builds available yet. v3.4 requires a time machine.

I don't know what makes you think printing 4 copies could be Gimp's problem? Have you tried with other software on the same printer? Did you uninstall/reinstall the printer?

RE: prints 4 copies
It's version 2.6 and this problem has only occurred with Gimp. I use the microsoft image viewer and a very old version of photoshop and they don't have any trouble printing to this printer. I don't know if this is a problem with Gimp but it does seem to be the only software that is having the trouble. Because of this I have not wanted to uninstall/reinstall the printer software. I thought I would give the forum a shot first.

I just found something that fixed it. I turned off print spooling for that printer. Now it prints directly to the printer and it is only printing 1 copy now rather than 4.
