[K12OSN] The Gimp and printing



The server is AMD 1 ghz processor, 1 gig RAM and 8 junk box terminals with 128 to 512 meg of RAM

I am Running 4.2.2 with updates.
There are two printers involved: HP-1200 Laserjet and an HP-841C Deskjet color inkjet printer.


PROBLEM: Anything printed using the Gimp takes about two hours before it even starts to print. In the mean time no other users can print. If the Gimp file is put into OO word processor it is printed very quickly on either printer. The quick printing also applies to drawings done in Tux Paint. Image files done in the Gimp are averaging less than 100k bytes What is being printed by the other programs has been as high as 3 meg bytes.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this is or what may be required to fix it?
Thanks
Pat
