HP CP1025nw prints only black and white [solved]

Good night community!


First of all, I like to thank Rick Richardson, openprinting and all the linux and foo2zjs community for all the suppor i have received.

I am a biomedical engineer, within my tasks is to install Doctors' printers to Ultrasound imaging equipments, I have successfully used Foo2zjs' PPDs to get printers working correctly. Unfortunately, I have been tryint to install a "hp laserjet pro cp1025nw" color printer for week long now, just yesterday I could get it working with a PPD I got from a .tar.gz file I downloaded from this link http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz , the name of the PPD is "HP-LaserJet_Pro-CP1025nw.ppd".

Until now, the printer works wonderfully, except that it only prints black and white when it is supposed to print CMYK, sadly my knowledge about PPD do not allow me to make the respective changes to the file in order to get it printing in color.

I would like to ask this community for help in order to modify the PPD file and get the printer printing in CMYK, any help would hel a lot.


Sincerely yours,
Sergio D.

$ system-config-printer
cp1025nw -> Printer Options -> Color Mode -> Color - use ICM color profile
Apply
OK

Is there anyway to modify the PPD file in order to get the printer printing by default in color?, I don't have those menu options on the ultrasound imaging machine.
Anyway, I am trying to print in color from Ubuntu.

Thank you for all your support.
