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).

The best output one gets with HP's HPIJS 1.3 or newer. If you cannot update to HPIJS 1.3 for some reason, you can also use HPIJS 1.2.2 with the patches from Matthias Bunte and Richard Spencer-Smith ("hpijs-rss"). The Gimp-Print driver also works (Model setting: "pcl-900"), but only up to 600 dpi.

*****User Report*******

I used the "DeskJet 550C/560C/6xxC" driver from RedHat's Printtool. I also enabled the fix for stair steping. According to the webpage, it does up to 2400x2400 under windows, but that is because of the PhotoREt III color layering technology, which from what I understand, just makes the ink droplets smaller. The GS driver limits it to 600x600, I believe. I hope all the info I entered here is correct, please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

So, like most recent HP models, this printer qualifies for, at best, "Mostly". Most of the best printing modes aren't really supported properly, because HP doesn't document their newer printers.

I find it works perfectly on black text using this driver,hwoever color horrible. Color is better using the "500/6xxC" series driver, but black text is just a wee bit off at the very bottom of the page. Using the 800 series drivers sends the color to the left, and is unable to print thr 1" margin at the bottom. Someone needs to add a decent driver... I want to print photos!

I just got the new "880C/882C/895C" driver, and I think it gives a slightly crisper image than the 550C, and so far it works well.

"stp" is slow but better than other drivers for photos. However the quality is still very poor as compared to a PostScript printer. I would recommend **not** purchasing this printer (or most other HP inkjets if you want to print photos) for use with Linux. I tried emailing HP several times because of their claims of supporting Linux, but never received a response. They also claim printing support on sourceforge yet I found none from HP.

"hpdj" driver works well and is included with debian; However, the "stp" driver provides cleaner results. I printed a photograph in windows and linux, unfortunately the colors and resolution in windows were both highly superior.. although the quality in linux was acceptable for draft-quality work.
