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).

This printer only works "Perfectly" in the PCL mode (ljet3/ljet3d Ghostscript drivers).

Same as a IIIP, just with a postscript cartridge.

Under Red Hat "install a printer" and select "PostScript" as the printer.

lpr installs and uses the Gnu Magicfilter by default.

High quality print.

Some pdf documents do not translate to a PostScript file that this printer can print, even if Level 1 is explicitly selected on the xpdf command line. Same result with Adobe Acroreader. May be related to the age of the PS cartridge (1991).

The old PS cartdrige cannot handle the output of some recent applications.

Using the ljet3 and ljet3d Ghostscript drivers can speed up printing because your PC can do the converting from PS to ljet much faster than the PS Cartridge

In PS mode, input trays can be selected by the following PS command: 'statusdict /setpapertray known {statusdict begin 0 setpapertray end} if {} pop' where '0' is the first tray, '1' the second.

Consumables/Refills: Toner cartridge $80
