Mini Thermal Printer Tutorial Error

Under the "Mac and Linux" portion of "Bitmap Printing" while running bitmapImageConvert.pde in Processing, I get the following error

"The method selectinput(String, String) in the type PApplet is not applicable for the arguments (String)"

and highlighted text in the sketch of

" filename = selectInput("Select image file to convert:");"

Any thoughts on this? I've been able to convert bitmaps with LCD Assistant on windows, but this would be much easier if I get it working.

Thank You.

Download the 1.5.1 stable release of Processing and it should be good. Though they recently made it the most prominent download, 2.0 is still beta.

I'll update the tutorial tomorrow a.m. to recommend the 1.5.1 download, and will update the sketch for 2.0 once it's more entrenched.
