I’ve just got a new printer (Canon iP8750) and I’m getting familiar to printing my pictures.
As the title suggests, I was not able to print borderless with darktable.
I’m on Ubuntu 20.04, with darktable installed from OBS (v 3.4.0), and installed the driver for Ubuntu provided by Canon.
In GIMP it seems everything works fine, in darktable I can’t see what I’m missing, in case I am missing something.
You can see here below a snap from my phone of the two prints: on top is what I could print from GIMP (what is expected), on the bottom is what I could get from darktable.
The printing options in GIMP look alright:
In darktable the settings have a different look, and I couldn’t find anything clearly stating “borderless”, so I guessed for the ‘4x6.bl’ in the papersize menu.
One thing that suggests something wrong is that the states paper size is smaller (the GIMP settings tell the truth).
I tried also the other 2 available ‘4x6’ options in the paper size menu (no indication about what’s different…) with worse results.
So, has anybody an idea where I should head next?
In GIMP it worked out of the box, so I’m covered for my basic printing needs, but I’d prefer to print directly from darktable.
Thanks in advance for your time.
