    Default Printer not printing photos

    I have an Epson R240 I can't seem to get it to print very well. The colour settings all wrong and when I get the print setting to 'No border' forget it a border comes out. This is an important factor to my using a computer is my photography. SO it is very important to get this right if we can. Looking forward to your help

    thank you

    GGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRR I have now spent hours and paper and ink on trying to resolve this!!!!!!!! I am about fed up, I am trying so hard not to use Windows and to keep Linux, but I have just got to give in. The printing is SO important if I can't get that right I will have to abandon it until it resolves itself one day. I have tried to make sense of cups etc, but for my poor morphine brain its not easy to understand. All I get is a cropped image that is frankly useless. It keeps trying to put borders on and I don't want that. The image is so weak an wishy yet another waste of paper and ink. This is getting expensive.

    In yast , hardware, printers select add drivers. A list should be there. Or with gimp add gutenburgh drivers. Worked for the epson r200. Click around, somewhere in there it works.

    Done all that. My comp did a complete failure dur to Windows. So will have to re think on what course of action to take. Not sure if Suse can offer what I want. I t does offer other areas but photography and printing is the most important. I have to empty my bin now of the test prints which were so unsuccesful.
