This means you do not need to recompile ghostscript every time a new printer model comes out; you just update the external filter program. Printer drivers come with PPD files, which are descriptions of how to run the driver and which options it has. One of these external ghostscript filters is “hpijs”. Click the “download PPD” link. I was not pleased with the result of the test page:

Foreword Here is some information about how printing works in Fedora, how to diagnose problems with it, and related topics. We can also discard hpijs-rss as an older, albeit patched, version of hpijs than the one we have installed, and hpdj as an older version of the pcl3 driver. This page was last edited on 4 Julyat 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.

I was not pleased with the result of the test page: The extension must be. This document is Copyright by Robert van den Aker. CUPS provides several methods for doing this, but some are provided by other packages including:. I had to fiomatic some of the driver settings this is done through the “Configure Printer” option on the printers page in the CUPS web interface before I was able to successfully print a test page.
HP Linux Printing and Imaging – printer driver (hpijs)
Red Hat is not responsible for content. The only “color mode” that worked with my black ink cartridge was “Floyd-Steinberg Gray”. The main part of CUPS is the scheduler, cupsd. To adjust the system locale, use system-config-language. Retrieved from ” https: The optional foomatic-filters package includes the foomatic-rip filter script from the www.

This would make it possible for the right driver to be automatically installed when you plug in the printer. Here is some information about how printing works in Fedora, how to diagnose problems with it, and related topics. We’re not going to use any of these: Click the “download PPD” link. The page says that the type of the cdj driver is “Ghostscript”. Once the job file has been converted to the printer’s native format, CUPS backends transfer the job to the printer.
This package also provides the printer status icon in the notification area, and creates queues automatically when USB printers are connected.
Foomatic PPDs for the hpijs ghostscript filter are provided by the hpijs-ppds package and will already be installed and available for selection in the CUPS web interface if you installed that package. Your printer foomstic also be supported by one of the ‘sample’ CUPS drivers included in the cups package. Finally you need to add a filtering printer that uses the new PPD, as explained in this howto.
Package: printer-driver-hpijs (3.14.6-1+deb8u1)
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?
We can quickly discard three of these: SIGs Fedora special-interest groups. It is responsible foomatif responding to IPP requests such as examining printer queue attributes, printing files, or adding and deleting queues.
Different PPDs that use foomatic-rip often require different ghostscript devices. If your printer is not supported by either of these driver packages, goomatic may yet be able to find a Foomatic PPD for your printer. 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.
This script is a clever hack to allow the use of ‘traditional’ ghostscript devices with CUPS. This can be either one of the native CUPS filters or foomatic-rip. For comments or queries, please contact us. This is a system service started at boot time.
