What am I missing???

Postby Ed_P » 06 Mar 2017, 18:31

Porteus Cinnamon 3.2.2 64-bit

So I want to print an image, I view the image on the screen, I press PrtScr the image is saved to /home/guest/Pictures. I dbl click in the file in /home/guest/Pictures it opens and displays on the screen. But there is no print option that I see!! Either on the image app or in the Porteus Menu.

I have a printer and it is connected with Porteus and I can print test pages with it so that's not the issue. Using the PrtScr key isn't an option, it just puts another copy to the /Pictures folder. With Porteus 3.0.1 RazorQt I could print images, not sure with what app but it worked.

So, what am I missing?

(Obviously I don't print that often or I would have had this question quite awhile ago. :) )

that's gwenview
but its a kde app so you might not want that for cinnamon..
geeqie i'm looking at here (not porteus) has a print option, might do the job, but you'll have to install it..

a builtin solution might be to open the picture with firefox (or another web browser) and use its print function..
otherwise go the whole hog and use(get) gimp...

:D Actually that's what I ended up doing. But surprised to see the print option missing on so many apps in Cinnamon.
