This driver is free software.
Type: Ghostscript built-in

Generic Instructions: CUPS, PPR, LPD/LPRng/GNUlpr, PDQ, no spooler, PPD aware applications/clients,

Important for Windows clients: The CUPS PostScript driver for Windows has a bug which makes it choking on PPD files which contain GUI texts longer than 39 characters. Therefore it is recommended to use Adobe's PostScript driver. If you still want to use the CUPS driver, please mark "GUI texts limited to 39 characters" to get an appropriate PPD file.

This driver is a GPL DeskJet 2200 driver provided by HP (!). It's based on Uli and Matthew's cdj850 and cdj880 drivers, with a new front-end to speak the different RGB-encoded PCL flavor used by these printers.

The original source package is not provided any more on HP's web sites. You can download it here from OpenPrinting. Installation instructions you find in the package.

The provided source is for gs 6.01; it probably works against anything at all recent. It is also contained in ESP Ghostscript 7.07, 8.15, and later and GPL Ghostscript 8.60 and later. So all distributions using these Ghostscript versions and perhaps also others will ship this driver.

After getting a tip from the driver's author I (Till) succeeded to compile it for GNU Ghostscript 5.50. You must copy the function "gdev_pcl_mode9compress" from the gdevcd8.c file of the cdj880 driver into the end of the gdevcd8.c of HP's "chp2200" driver. Then you follow the instructions in HP's source package and Ghostscript will compile.
