HP Linux Printing and Imaging - printer driver (hpijs)

This package contains an IJS printer driver for Ghostscript, which adds support for most inkjet printers and some LaserJet printers manufactured by HP. It is also required for HPLIP fax support. The Debian package of hpijs includes the so-called rss patch, to use pure black ink instead of composite black in printers that don't do color map conversion in firmware. HPIJS can take advantage of Ghostscript IJS KRGB support when available, to enhance black printing on printers that do color map conversion in firmware and are thus not affected by the old rss patch. Users of the CUPS printing system are advised to also install the hplip package, and use the hp CUPS backend to send data to the printer. HPLIP supports USB, networked and parallel-port devices, and enables extended HPIJS functionality such as border-less printing. Selecting any hpijs ppd in CUPS will use hpijs automatically. HPIJS is meant to be used through the foomatic system (see the foomatic-filters package or foomatic-rip in the cups-filters package).


HP Linux Printing and Imaging System (HPLIP)

The HP Linux Printing and Imaging System provides full support for printing on most HP SFP (single function peripheral) inkjets and many LaserJets, and for scanning, sending faxes and for photo-card access on most HP MFP (multi-function peripheral) printers. HPLIP is composed of: * System services to handle communications with the printers * HP CUPS backend driver (hp:) with bi-directional communication with HP printers (provides printer status feedback to CUPS and enhanced HPIJS functionality such as 4-side full-bleed printing support) * HP CUPS backend driver for sending faxes (hpfax:) * hpcups CUPS Raster driver to turn rasterized input from the CUPS filter chain into the printer's native format (PCL, LIDIL, ...). (hpcups is shipped in a separate package) * HPIJS Ghostscript IJS driver to rasterize output from PostScript(tm) files or from any other input format supported by Ghostscript, and also for PostScript(tm) to fax conversion support (HPIJS is shipped in a separate package) * Command line utilities to perform printer maintenance, such as ink-level monitoring or pen cleaning and calibration * GUI and command line utility to download data from the photo card interfaces in MFP devices * GUI and command line utilities to interface with the fax functions * A GUI toolbox to access all these functions in a friendly way * HPAIO SANE backend (hpaio) for flatbed and Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) scanning using MFP devices USB, JetDirect (network) and parallel-port devices are supported.
