    HP 720C under Mandrake 8.0 (ie through CUPS). All the colours are very washed-out and unsaturated. Is this a well-known problem?

      No - it sounds as if pnm2ppa wasn't adjusted properly. Can you find out what arguments pnm2ppa is invoked with and get back to us?

      erm, no, cos I don't know how... I'm a relative newbie and I'm just using the defaults from whatever PrinterDrake set up. I'll happily look and find out, if anyone can suggest where to look?

      thanks a lot.

      alternatively, is there a howto or something on how to configure pnm2ppa from scratch?

      Fixed - having spent a few hours finding the CUPS config files, it appears that what it calls "normal quality" is --eco, and what it calls "econofast" simply adds --fd.

      I'll just use "best" all the time, which gets rid of --eco. And uses a different gamma file.
