BeOS & Derivatives Gutenprint is a suite of printer drivers that can be used with UNIX and Linux print spooling systems, such as CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System), lpr, LPRng, and others. Gutenprint currently supports over 700 printer models. Gutenprint was recently ported to Haiku, both increasing its printing capabilities, as well as extending its supported printer models. This article describes Gutenprint and the effort to port it to Haiku.

This 'rift' is overblown.

You say that because you do not know the history between Haikuware and the Haiku project. This lack of recognition has happened before. When Karl tried to engage the project in the early days of his bounty initiative, he was ignored at first and then even chastised for eventually pushing his effort through on his own.

There was even some "ẗhis may be illegal" babbling from then project leader M. Phipps, which he ironically posted as an excuse on the Haiku mailing list soon after the project had taken from Karl the $2,000+ that he had raised on his first donation drive.

After that, Karl pretty much had to beg for a "thank you" post on the website, which I wrote myself and ended posting more or less against the reluctance of the Haiku admins.
