Gutenprint is the print facility for the GIMP, and in addition a
suite of drivers that may be used with common UNIX spooling systems
using GhostScript or CUPS. These drivers provide printing quality

many cases, and can be used for many of the most demanding printing
tasks. Gutenprint was formerly known as Gimp-Print.
