Colour (color) printing as grey on Xerox Phaser 6280DN


Richard B:
Can anyone help?  When using LL4 I could print in colour. With LL5 (recently upgraded to 5.4) I am only getting greyscale output whichever of the various suggested drivers I install. Using the default (Make and Model: Xerox Phaser 6250N Foomatic/Postscript which shows the driver as POSTSCRI.PPD on a test print) there is no colour option under Printer Options but there is under Job Options - "Printer-color-mode" is set to "monochrome" with NO other choice!.

I have now obtained "6280DN.ppd" from Xerox and tried that. Still getting monochrome only from this computer. Trying a fresh LL5.4 install on a different computer I still get monochrome only with the offered drivers but can at last get colour if I use the Xerox ppd. The versions of the CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) modules - including the postscript driver - are identical.
