I've been away for a while due to life getting in the way, but have recently been wrestling with getting some half decent prints from my old epson inkjet. I wanted to post what I had found but as it was edging towards software usage I posted as an answer to an old question on askubuntu here. Is it worth copying the question across?

Printer profiling questions in the context of photographic workflow are appropriate, but answering your question, "Is it worth copying the question across?"... generally, no. Cross-posting is heavily discouraged amongst Stack Exchange sites. See this answer to the Meta-SE question, Is cross-posting a question on multiple Stack Exchange sites permitted if the question is on-topic for each site?

  • Thanks. I've never rrally thought of stack exchange as a unified site. Looks like a bit of a can of worms that has been elevated to an almost philosophical level! It seems to leave the door adjar to a signpost question "how do I profile my printer for better photo prints?" answer "on ubuntu linux I have done this [link to ask ubuntu]". Any thoughts?

  • Or even an answer on this -[photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1715/… though I know that link only answers are discouraged.

  • @dmkonlinux I wouldn't quite say the Stacks are a unified site. More like a loose confederation of siloed subjects all holding similar rules of posting.

  • I went ahead and added a more general answer with a link to the question by @jrista, which is a great piece of work by the way. If this doesn't work for the site let me know and it's gone.

  • @dmkonlinux no, it's great to link to the answer on Ask Ubuntu. Nice answer.
