    The printer prints - black, no colour - so you are right; it is the tip of the iceberg.
    Sorry to ask the obvious, but from what I've read, these have a colour and black cartridge, is that right? Check printing options etc.

    If you're positive that it is due to the driver, then it could be down to the ppd file for this printer in the /etc/cups/ppd/directory. Now, these can be edited if required, and it may be that this section of the ppd needs tweaking
    Code:
    *OpenUI *ColorModel/Output Mode: PickOne
    *OrderDependency: 10 AnySetup *ColorModel 
    *DefaultColorModel: Color
    *ColorModel Color/Color: "<</cupsColorOrder 0/cupsColorSpace 1/cupsBitsPerColor 8/cupsRowCount 0>>setpagedevice"
    *ColorModel Black/Grayscale: "<</cupsColorOrder 0/cupsColorSpace 1/cupsBitsPerColor 8/cupsRowCount 1>>setpagedevice"
    *CloseUI: *ColorModel
    These parameters are described here:

    Unfortunately with Linux you have to verify printer support before
    shopping. I had a Canon, and to get good printouts I had to get the
    comercial drivers from turboprint (inexpensive for the results). Now I'm
    the happy owner of a fully supported HP.

    Maybe you can post now the output after adding that library, with the
    new errors.

    Only a mod can do that.

    The printing option is set to colour. I've also just checked the code and it is exactly as the code below.
    Colour would be nice, but B&W will do. Thanks.
