hp laserjet p1005

I have eventually got my p1005 working in suse 11.2 but I now have a small problem, It prints greyscale (ok so far). but everything is very washed out. it is fine in ubuntu. crisp black and white.

I take it you have checked the printout settings?

You could always try the CUPS interface, I find it works better.

Fixed, it is a problem with the hpijs driver, using the hpcups driver all is fine.
