I am getting Epson Stylus COLOR 1520 set up for first time.
I am using gimp 2.2.8 with Fedora Core 3.
I scanned image , and saved as jpeg. It prints out as pages of text. No image. I get the same kind of result if I draw rectangles filled w/color in gimp. I also drew the same rectangles using Open Office.Org Draw. The 1520 printed them OK. Gimp did print the images as images, not text at first. I then had to do a lot of work cleaning the print heads. Now I just get text, not image.

I now get pages and pages of text at this point]
I used the cups utility at http://localhost:731 to kill the job. I have even turned the printer off, disonnected it from the computer and power overnight, and shutdown the computer and restarted it with the same results
It does print the test print OK
