Finally you need to add a filtering printer that uses the new PPD, as explained in this howto. Different PPDs that use foomatic-rip often require different ghostscript devices. Content is available under Attribution-Share Alike 3. This would make it possible for the right driver to be automatically installed when you plug in the printer. This means that you need to have the “cdj” device compiled into ghostscript if you want to use the cdj PPD. If your browser has trouble setting a reasonable filename for the PPD, you can rename it after downloading to the name suggested in the PPD. The only “color mode” that worked with my black ink cartridge was “Floyd-Steinberg Gray”.

SIGs Fedora special-interest groups. I choose the HP DeskJetwhich takes me to this page. Once the job file has been converted to the printer’s native format, CUPS backends transfer the job to coomatic printer.
It uses ‘traditional’ ghostscript devices such as “cdj”, “pcl3”, “ijs”, etcetera instead. It is responsible for responding to IPP requests such as examining printer queue attributes, printing files, or adding and deleting queues.
This script is a clever hack to allow npijs use of ‘traditional’ ghostscript devices with CUPS. It may be freely redistributed in its entirety provided that this copyright notice hpijjs not removed. You can put it in a subdirectory if you prefer. The optional foomatic-filters package includes the foomatic-rip filter script from the www.
CUPS comes with several drivers and filters itself, but many are provided by other packages including:. This page was last edited on 4 Julyat Click the “download PPD” link. One of these external ghostscript filters is fomatic. The extension must be.
The Fedora Project is maintained and driven by the community and sponsored by Red Hat. The astute will have spotted the fooomatic device, the “ijs” device, which is used by the hpijs ghostscript filter, and the “cups” device, which is used by the native CUPS filters, among the available devices.

Printer queues are configured using system-config-printer. Red Hat is not responsible for content. See the How to debug printing problems page for some information about how to diagnose printing problems and what information is needed when filing bug reports.
I then installed the PPD for the “pcl3” driver, and that was much better, so I removed the printer that used the “cdj” driver and kept the “pcl3” printer. You can also compress it with gzip if you like. Content is available under Attribution-Share Alike 3.
CUPS provides several methods for doing this, but some are provided by other packages including:. As you can see, there are many drivers to choose from for my printer: The foomatic-rip filter does not use the “cups” ghostscript device.
This leaves us with three choices: Foreword Here is some information about how printing works in Fedora, how to diagnose problems with it, and related topics.
The only “color mode” that worked with my black ink cartridge was “Floyd-Steinberg Gray”. Finally you need to add a filtering printer that uses the new PPD, as explained in this howto.
Printer drivers come with PPD files, which are descriptions of how to run the driver and which options it has. To adjust the system locale, use system-config-language. The main part of CUPS is the scheduler, cupsd. This package also provides the printer status icon in the notification area, and creates queues automatically when USB printers are connected.
If your browser has trouble setting a reasonable filename for the PPD, you can rename it after downloading to the name suggested in the PPD. If your printer has a driver that you think should be in Fedora but isn’t, why not consider having a go at packaging it yourself?
