Miscellaneous

Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.

Comments

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.

This driver is obsolete. Recommended replacement driver: hplip
The printer works fine with this driver, since the 950C, 970cxi (se) and 990cxi (se) are nearly identical (duplexing-unit, papertraysize, ppm, ir-port differ). Like mentioned in the driver, the modes for glossy and transparancy have a big loss of saturation which should be fixed. The driver from gimp works much better. Someone (maybe me) should have a closer look...
