Test with different ghostscript versions

I've received a phaser 6110N yesterday.
I was really kinda disappointed that Xerox says they do support linux, whereas they actually only support 32bit Suse and Redhat (and only "older" versions).
Allthough they're support told me that would change as they realize more people use linux nowadays...

Anyway, your driver seems to work ok :-)....thnx a lot!

It just doesn't print the colors exactly as they actually look like.
The printed colors are a lot darker...
I tried to print the following page just for testing:
http://www.untangle.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=75&Itemid=148

My settings are:
1200x1200dpi, maximum quality, phaser6110 color profile


To the topic... I have just made a comparison between two versions of ghostscript.
The one from ghostscript.com (8.57 and 8.54) and the cups one http://www.cups.org/espgs/ (8.15.3).
Allthough the colors are lighter than with cups's gs (still far from as they should be), the output looks extremely ugly. Much noise, no clean black/grey, blurry + pixelized.

The output using cups's ghostscript looks nearly perfect. The colors are darker than with the other GS, but they are clean. Black and grey are completely! noise-free.


I guess if you would tune the color profiles some more, you could get the colors lighter ?

Profile is for 1200x600, not 1200x1200.

Did you get the latest foo2zjs.tar.gz?

Prints fine at 1200x600.

If you want 1200x1200, then it costs you money.

"Custom ICC ICM colour printer profile RGB or CMYK"

I'm using the latest version, downloaded today.
Prints fine ??, so the print looks exactly the same as on the website ?

I tried it again with 1200x600. The colors are the same (too dark) and the quality is a lot worse (a lot of noise everywhere, whereas with 1200x1200 at least blac+grey is fine).

But if it prints fine for you, I must be doing something wrong :-(.


If you can guarantee me that ordering a custom ICC ICM profile would give me results as with the windows driver, I'd be more than happy to spend 15€ for that ;-).
Suppose I have those custom icc-icm files, how do I use them with this driver ?


Isn't it possible to somehow use the cms/cms2 files from the xerox-linux-driver ?
