CLP-300 No Color Printing [Gentoo; gs 8.64 is TOAST!]

I've got a CLP300. I Installed a pretty new system (Gentoo); I installed foo2zjs as described on the HP.

However: I got no color at all. If I select "Color" in the Printer Settings of the CUPS 1.3.5 Web-Frontend nothing is printed. But CUPS does not complain either. It's just silence and the Job is stated as "successfully completed".

Monochrome works, but the quality is worse. I can't use it.

I inserted new toner cartridges (color and BW), but this didn't change a thing. Monochrome quality is still pure pain.

Printer works somehow on Windows XP on the very same machine (still quality is very, very, very bad).

I'm thinking to buy a new one and put Samsung CLP300 to trash. Maybe a HP?

Anyone got a hint for the Samsung?

Also, mono printing is AOK if you installed from *my instructions*.

$ make
$ ./getweb 300
# make install
