B&W only on mac os x 10.5 [solved]

I got the cp1215 working but it only prints black and white and I cant find a way to print in color.

I'm running the current ver of ghost, and foo on os x 10.5.6. All built with xcode download last night. I downloaded the imc files (./getweb 1215 thingy).

Is there a switch I missed or something I need to turn on?

From INSTALL.osx:
6b) CUPS UNIX Printing System
    Browse to:
        http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/cups/

    Then surf to: http://localhost:631 and follow the CUPS instructions.

    In particular, you can set up Color and other things.

        Set Printer Options -> Color Mode -> Color

Here is a screenshot

Sweet! I have color. What color profile should I use? It seems a bit too yellow and there is almost no blue.

Set Printer Options - CUPS 1.3.8 -> ICM Color Profile -> HP 1215 - Argyll 0 (default)
