Well at least now I do understand that you priner is just fine printing, with all other applications
but only not with Nomacs!

I have no idea how to get nomacs fixed, I googled it briefly, but zip.

Another solution is to use a different image viewer instead, who knows that one will work properly.

You can try it out first by right clicking the image and then click "open with" and see what you like that is in there. If you then want that new one as default, click that "open with" again, "open with other application", pick the one you chose from that list and check the checkbox in the bottom to use as default.

That was the problem. Nomacs was the problem. I installed Gwenview and now it prints in color as it should. Thank you very much Eadwine Rose. I recommend that the MX developers throw out Namacs like an old shoe and replace it with Gwenview.
