10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer
Authored by: deef on Mar 18, '05 01:45:13AM

Hmm...I think your printer is still using three colors to print black -- are you sure you didn't change cartridges? From an unintended experiment with a dead magenta cartridge that made all my output from CUPS & shared printing green, I discovered that CUPS-based printing (shared printers, Unix lp command, NeoOffice...) uses three colors to make black, not the black cartridge. Changing the postscript driver on my Windows machine had no effect on the output of shared jobs (which went through CUPS on the Mac).
