This backend can only be used in conjunction with Gutenprint 5.2.10 or
newer. Please see the Gutenprint README file (section II D) for more
information on use of this backend and integration into CUPS.
Although this backend is bundled with Gutenprint, this repository is
considered the canonical upstream source where all development occurs.
As such, when compared to the current Gutenprint release, the code found
here is often newer, with additional features or device support. At the

While this repository is considered the canonical upstream source for
this code, code snapshots are bundled with each Gutenprint release.
Generally speaking, the code in this repository will require the current
Gutenprint release (or pre-release) to generate the actual print jobs.
As such, when compared to any given Gutenprint release, the code found
here is usually newer, with additional features, device support, and
bugfixes. At the same time, it may have half-developed features that

With rare exceptions, all printer support in selphy_print (and Gutenprint)
was developed without any assistance from the printer manufactuers,
relying on reverse-engineering and a great deal of experimentation.
On that note, please keep in mind that this software distributed

remaining media counts.
Please note that this backend merely handles the low-level
communication with the printer! Actually generating print jobs requires
use of Gutenprint compile with support for CUPS.
