For basic printing functionality use the HPIJS driver . For advanced functionality such as printer status and maintenance features, use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).

User report:

Colour resolution under Linux is 600x600 dpi. HP claims the Windows driver they ship with the printer enhances this using "PhotoRet II" technology. The driver basically changes the amount of colors per dot by reducing the size of the inkdrops. Supposedly the inkdrops are 70% smaller per dot than those produced by the average DeskJet. After checking their site, I found no driver to enable this same technology under any UNICES. Still, this should be a nice printer overall under Linux, so unleash that GIMP! This printer appears to be functionally identical to the DeskJet 810C. I am currently using the 300dpi DeskJet 550C colour Ghostscript setup as shipped with Red Hat Linux 6.0, and the output is excellent in every respect. I have marked the suggested driver as cdj880 as I am 99.9% certain it will work and this driver should give the best output.

Good output should also be possible from the "pcl3"/"hpdj" drivers.

I believe that various papers like transparency, glossy, etc, are supported by one or the other "cdjXXX" driver.

Consumables/Refills: C1823 (CMY) and C6615A (K)
