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.

I think Haiku Inc. could do a little better in PR to perhaps maintain good relations with the few organizations that financially support Haiku, but that's just me!


It's somewhat unfair to put the onus of promoting and endorsement of Haikuware on Haiku, Inc., I think. You should be lobbying the project in general for this kind of support - as it's generally the greater body of project contributors who benefit from Haikuware's Bounties and subsequently post updates to the haiku-os.org website (which I assume is where you want to see this promotion).

As you can see - almost everyone on the Haiku, Inc. BOD has either individually donated to Haikuware bounties, or received funding from them - so we certainly support Haikuware in this regard as individuals.

In any case, I've got a couple ideas that might ease your frustration - I'll see what we can do.

The funny thing is that I visited haiku-os.org and the word "Google" appears 10 times at the front page.

I guess koki is right and what you really meant was that Haikuware's wallet is not thick enough to be a part of your club?

Because it's not as if Haiwkuware was a competing product/project. Its only reason to be is to promote Haiku and encourage its development (and they have made/are making some great contributions). Why wouldn't you "promote" one of your biggest promoters (help them help you) is beyond me.

Assuming you're not just another sock puppet...

I only suggested that the project in general is the problem, not specifically Haiku, Inc. Neither of the two Google articles currently on the front page of haiku-os.org were written by members of Haiku, Inc.
