Re: CUPS color balance problem

Hash: SHA1


Has the color balance problem existed for the whole time that you have
used this printer, or is this a new problem? I have had no trouble
printing to a HP Deskjet 855c, 672c, 855cxi, 1600c, and Tektronix Phaser
560 color laser printer.

Which CUPS deskjet printer driver are you using? There are two HP
Deskjet printer drivers supplied with the FC2 version of CUPS:
	HP Deskjet Series CUPS v1.1 (en)
	HP New Deskjet Series CUPS v1.1 (en)

Try the other driver and see if it makes a difference.

Hope that this helps,
