As you can see, there are many drivers to choose from for my printer: So what are those Foomatic PPDs? Some background information about foomatic-rip, its use of traditional ghostscript devices, and how these differ from the special “cups” ghostscript device, can be found on this page. For comments or queries, please contact us. It can be used in tandem with either the oldish “hpijs” ghostscript device or the new “ijs” ghostscript device. Different PPDs that use foomatic-rip often require different ghostscript devices.

A newer method is to have a common ghostscript device call an external program also called a filter; distinct from CUPS filterswhich controls the printer options for the different models supported by the filter.
I was not pleased with the result of the test page: This package also provides the printer status icon in the notification area, and creates queues automatically when USB printers are connected.

For comments or queries, please contact us. 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.
Your printer may also be supported by one of the ‘sample’ CUPS drivers included in the cups package.
The optional foomatic-filters package includes the foomatic-rip filter script from the www. As you can see, there are many drivers to hoijs from for my printer: The foomatic-rip filter does not use the “cups” ghostscript device. One of these external ghostscript filters is “hpijs”. We can also discard hpijs-rss as an goomatic, albeit patched, version of hpijs than the one we have installed, and hpdj as an older version of the pcl3 driver.
Here is some information about how printing works in Fedora, how to diagnose problems with it, and related topics.
This would make it possible for the right driver to be automatically installed when you plug in the printer. Finally you need to add a filtering printer that uses the new PPD, as explained in this howto.
This page was last hpijss on 4 Julyat This means that you need to have the “cdj” device compiled into ghostscript if you want to use the cdj 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? This can be either one of the native CUPS filters or foomatic-rip.
The extension must be. 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 foomztic. This is a system service started at boot time.
SIGs Fedora special-interest groups. I choose the HP DeskJetwhich takes me to this page. However, very few driver distributions provide native CUPS filters, and the foomatic-rip trick comes in handy in many cases.
We’re not going to use any of these: Other Foomatic PPDs need to be downloaded from the www. It may be freely redistributed in its entirety provided that this copyright notice is not removed. You can also compress it with gzip if you like.
In addition, if I want to use a Foomatic PPD, the Foomatic PPD for hpijs for this printer was already installed by the hpijs-ppds package, so I can use the hpijs driver the recommended driver for this printer, as we shall see right away.
The only “color mode” that worked with my black ink cartridge was “Floyd-Steinberg Gray”. To adjust the system locale, use system-config-language.
Package: printer-driver-hpijs (3.14.6-1+deb8u1)
Printer drivers come with PPD files, which are descriptions of how to run the driver and which options it has. The main part of CUPS is the scheduler, cupsd. It uses ‘traditional’ ghostscript devices such as “cdj”, “pcl3”, “ijs”, etcetera instead.
