Hi everybody,

I'm fighting with my printer setup.  I have an Epson Stylus Photo 
2100, and it does a very good job, as long as I print via Windows 
(currently in a VMware-box).  But -- for obvious reasons -- I would 
like to print directly from Linux.

But, regardless what I do, the result is absolutely disgusting.  The 
contrast is way too high and the colors are very very greenish.  I 
tried gimprint, gutenprint, turboprint.  But the results are more 
or less the same.

I tried e.g. to print the following file:

But the best result possible is this:

As you see, it's nothing to show to proud grandparents ;-(

I know, it's not really digikam-related, but maybe someone has some 
ideas of what's going wrong here.
