maybe we somehow missed the business model of turboprint. ;-))
They provide turboprint to download and test free of charge.
For testing purposes, you can print anything with the only
limitation that they print out their logo on any page, except
when printing in draft mode.
This allows you to see how
wonderful turboprint works in conjunction with your printer
without paying anything before knowing.
Only after you know, you go to the turboprint website, pay for
and download a valid license key and voila:
You can print to
your canon in a quality that matches windows, without any
additional logo, simply because you paid for the license. ;-)
It is cheap and it is money well spent. I fully agree with
There is nothing comparable around, especially in
regard to canon inkjet printers used with Linux.
For example I use it to print from Dapper to a Canon i965 that is
connected to a Windows XP box. Works like a charm, it takes
rather long until the printout starts, but the quality of the
prints is outstandingly good...
