    Hi all,
    i bought a second hand mutoh rockhopper 1 but did not realise that i needed a rip software. can anyone point me in the right direction on installing it and getting it running, i am really confused.
    i would buy a rip but i do not have the funds to go for something like postershop etc
    i currently use corel draw and photoshop.

    pleassseeee help me.

    Since there are no window drivers for this printer you will need a RIP.
    Hopefully whoever you get it from will help you set it up.

    You might be able to set it up as a GENERIC PRINTER using the windows Generic Print Driver... BUT you will not be able to properly control color with profiles and will more than likely run into issues printing anything over 3ft in length.

    A RIP is really needed here. PhotoPrint SE 10 for PC - List $995 US - PM for best price

    how would i go about setting it up as a Generic Print??
    on the test print there are a few problems and i would like to make sure i can get the printer working 100% before i spend more money on it. if it was printing ok i would buy a rip

    thanks guys for your help managed to install it as a Generic Printer and print direct from corel. perfect to test the printer is working ok but as ciber supply said colour and size is an issue when not using a rip!
