Too little red

I have a Konica Minolte 1690MF-d multifunction printer/fax/scanner. Printing in color works (over the network, using either the 1690 ICM or no icm makes no difference), but the printout has too little magenta in it (i.e. a light pink area comes out as light yellow).
Red areas come out as red, so it's not a toner problem. Also, color-copying preserves the exact colors. Just printing in color uses way too little magenta.

Is there any way to fix the colors?

Thanks,
Reinhold

Okay, so it's an ICM problem.
Strange enough, printing from windows using the konica drivers works fine with normal colors (i.e. pink is printed as pink), while in Linux (using the 1690 ICM, which is also from konica) does distort the colors. So I thought it might be some strange setting in the foo2java driver.

Well, since you say it's a ICM problem, I'll try to generate a propier ICM and send it to you...
