AFAIK most plotters and wide format printers will work with OS X. Which have you looked at?

With Panther, of course, GimpPrint is built in, but since Retrospect is not yet Panther compatible (due out Monday), I haven't switched to 10.3, so I can't help there. Check the GimpPrint website @ http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php3. The new alpha version 5.0.0, though not completely stable, suredly supports most all HP plotters. The website has all the info, including supported machines.

Actually we have a problem with our HP1050c BECAUSE ther is an HP driver. The trouble is that it doesn't work (reliably anyway) and so there is no open source alternative. Fortunately our lease term is up so we are looking at other machines. I am particularly interested in the Epson 7600. If we end up getting it I will post our experiences.

I'm having difficulty finding a plotter that will work with OS 10.3.2. I am using a Power Book G4, and ArchiCad 8.1. I want to be able to plot onto 2' wide media. Colour is not essential, but it would be nice.
Has anyone found anything that works?
