Re: [K12OSN] Laser Printer super-slow?



Hello,

When I look at CUPS I see nothing about the version of the driver.  Just:
Driver:	HP LaserJet 2100 Foomatic/pxlmono (recommended) (grayscale,
2-sided printing)

Looking directly at the PPD file vs. the latest one online, I find no
difference at all.

Could there be another solution?

Thank you!

Joseph
