Bug Description

since the last cupsys-driver-gimpprint version (4.2.7-4ubuntu2) entered hoary, my
Epson C62 doesn't print some colors. For example there is no red or green in the
Ubuntu test print page.
With the Epson Kowa driver there is no problem.

The only thing that changed between -4ubuntu1 and -4ubuntu2 was the order
in which "gs-esp | gs" are depended on. At the time of this upgrade, did
you also end up swapping gs for gs-esp? Does removing one and installing
the other make any difference to your issue?

i've never used gs.
removing one and installing the other doesn't make any difference.

It seems likely that this problem was caused by the new hpijs, which
unexpectedly entered Hoary due to bringing in hplip

Scratch that, since this printer doesn't use hpijs.
