The XW-TOOLS is a complete system to print images on various printers.

The follwing types of files can be processed: 
- Tiff*
- Jpeg
- Xwd
- Png
- Ppm/Pgm/Pnm
- Gif *

* Only in countries where software and algorhythms are not patented. For the Tiff format it will not be possible to read files with LZW compression.. 

Printers from different companies may be used. ( EPSON, Canon, HP). Support for printers with special ink  (such as photo-ink) like the EPSON Stylus Photo ... or the  EPSON Stylus Pro 5000 is implemented .

The driver xw_print is able to send information directly to network printers (lp BSD-protocol).

The XW-TOOLS system contains its own spooler, thereby enabling you to print from different workstations.

The  spool system is compatible with the standard lp-system.

Simple configuration files permit the use of a printer with different parameters such as  paper size or type.

A GUI allows an easy usage of the XW-TOOLS system. All  configured printers (logical or physical) are presented on the screen.


Epson Utilities

The Epson utilities allow to display with the Linux kernel 2.2.x the remaining ink quantity, to perform a nozzle check or to clean the head.


Xwprint is a plug-in for gimp. 
Xwprint allows to call the graphical user interface directly from gimp.
