Deskjet 500C printer model for HP-UX

Deskjet 500C printer model for HP-UX

Post by Hugh Conn » Tue, 09 Nov 1993 22:07:49

I am trying to connect an HP DeskJet 500C printer to a 700 series workstation
running HP-UX 8.07. When I look at the printer models in /usr/spool/lp/model
I find that the deskjet model does not support colour. The only colour printer
there is Paintjet which uses PCL level 4 while the manual for the Deskjet says
it uses PCL level 3. As an experiment I tried it out using the paintjet model
but while I managed to get an output of a screen dump the colours were wrong.

Is there a correct printer model available for the 500C? I had a look under
HP-UX 9.01 but it seems to be the same as 8.07 in that respect. Any help
greatly appreciated.

I have connected a DesignJet 500C printer in an HP apollo series 700
(710) workstation with parallel interface.I attemp to print a text file
when the color cartridge is in the printer , but the file is not printed
until i switch to the monochrome black cartridge. Is it possible to
print a text file using the color cartridge and what do I have to do?
