I've managed to match the printing quality of Rick's reference photo when printing through KDE/Cups.
As a reference for when I need to make this work on another computer and possibly to help anyone else who has the same issues as I did I will outline the steps here.
Download and unpack GPL Ghostscript-8.54 somewhere handy.
Then install it:
$ ./configure --enable-compile-inits --with-x
# make install
$ make so
# make soinstall
Then download and copy the Ghostscript fonts to the appropriate directory.
I also created a symbolic link from /usr/local/bin/gs to /usr/local/bin/gs8, although I'm not sure this is necessary. (I noticed foo2hp2600-wrapper looked for gs8 so I put it there).
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/gs /usr/local/bin/gs8
Make cups use the newly installed Ghostscript.
# vi /etc/foomatic/filter.conf
Add/Change the following lines:
# rccups restart
# /etc/init.d/cups restart
Install foo2zjs following the excellent documentation provided.
Use Yast to install the printer.
I am now able to make fairly good color prints through KDE/Cups. I don't think they are as good as what I can print out of Windows but they are good enough for my purposes and match Rick's reference quality.
