 GS support for color printers HP670C, Lexmark JetPrinters 1020, 20X0 ?

Does ghostscript have support (drivers) for color jet printers:
HP 670C, Lexmark JetPrinters 1020, 20X0 ?

regards, Michal.

No.  According to one post I saw from a printer driver programmer, HP
feels that the protocol to drive their new windows only dummy is
proprietary information.

The boat for those LexMarks is about the same shape and displacement.

The problem is that there is just enough smarts in those printers to run
their motors, and maybe enough memory to hold one full sweep of the
heads data.  All of the bit twiddling to turn your prose, or your
graphics, into something printable has been uploaded to the computer,
which of course (why are you not surprised?) must be a wintel clone.  It
also explains why the cable must be a bi-directional one, and somewhat
why the driver comes on a cd, as usually its too big for a floppy by the
time you add in all those font images.

Cheers, Gene

Hmmh the 670c is afaik a pcl-printer. It nicely prints color with the
hp850-driver, but has due a driver bug, a problem with b/w-text.

For more info on the hp670, see my web-page

The 670C works fine with the 550 driver, as do the 680C and 690C.  Of
course, some of the features of these printers aren't supported, but
we use them with the 550 driver with no problems.

Uli's 850C driver works fine with the 870C, and it appears to be OK
with the 890C as well.
