i have bought a HP 5740 color printer that i claim to get to work in FreeBSD
after some investigation it turned out best bet is to declare it as a HP 990C.
but when i select that from 9) various HP Deskjet drivers or 11) official HP
DeskJet drivers (hpijs 0.97), i get the following error message:
Which driver do you want to choose?
[Hit RETURN to see the list again, enter 0 to choose new type.]
Enter number: 158
Error: Your gs version doesn't have driver "hpijs" compiled in...
Select another driver or build a new gs version with complete or customized
Now you'll see a list of drivers supported by your gs version...
yet i do have hpijs compiled in:
# ls /var/db/pkg|grep hp
i even recompiled ghostscript on the top of reinstalling it, and then rebuild
when i try to declare it as a HP 990 from 12) official HP DeskJet drivers
(hpijs 1.1 and later), i can print a color test page successfully, but when i
try to print from gimp, as the only printer (overwrite config), i can only
select 600dpi, but it's a 1200 dpi, how do i force it to be 1200?
when i try to add a printer on the top of my monochrome laser, and select the
new filter to print, i get "PS Adobe 3 Creator" something on the first page
with some junk, then the printer pulls all blank pages from the tray.
thanks for any clues
