 Epson Stylus Color 800: Problems with Color Printing

Hi
I've installed an Epson Stylus color 800 under my Suse 5.2-Linux-system.
The printer is working in general, but the color-prints are bad.
The problem is the following:
  - the colors are transformed, a green with the rgb-values of (0,1,0) in the
    orginal become rgb=(0,0.7,0.4) in the printing.
  - the resolution is rougth.
  - the prints have low colors.

    (to a reference print of the same file made under OS/2)

I've tested the following (with no success!):
  - apsfilter 1.3 and 1.5
  - ghostscript version 4.03
  - ghostscript 5.1 with stcolor
  - ghostscript 5.1 with uniprint and stc800p.upp.
  - manually edited resolution of 720 dpi in the apsfilterrc.atc800p
  - include of gamma.ps

Thanks for any help !

With some effort, you could modify the appropriate Ghostscript device
drivers, especially the default resolution and the colormapping
functions. See drivers.txt in the gs distribution.
