I'm using a small sourcebased distribution called crux.
I followed the instruction and compiled from source:
make
./getweb 1215 # Get HP LaserJet CP1215 .ICM files
make install
/etc/rc.d/cupsd restart
http://localhost:631
Description: HP Color LaserJet CP1217
Location: daheim
Printer Driver: HP Color LaserJet Series PCL 6 CUPS
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: usb://HP/Color%20LaserJet%20CP1217

lp test.txt -> no error, but does not print !
How to solve the trouble ?

cupsd.log:

$ cd foo2zjs
$ foo2hp2600-wrapper -z1 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
$ ls -l xxx.prn
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 62432 2009-06-25 17:12 xxx.prn
$ su
# cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0

What does that say?

Thanks for the fast reply.
cp testpage.prn /dev/usb/lp0 prints the first time ! :-)
But the print is only in greyscale. Where are the nice colors gone ?
Found option -c, but the result is only a 72 Byte-file.
Whats going wrong with printing via cups ?

CUPS is not my problem. URI should be usb:/dev/usb/lp0. Check with your distro. Add -c for color.
