hpcups does not use black ink in full-bleed mode

Bug #1024901 reported by zorgzorg2 on 2012-07-15

hplip (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When printing in full-bleed mode with hpcups on my HP photosmart 2610, the black parts of the image are rendered using color ink, while I would expect using black ink instead.
When going back to normal print mode (not full-bleed) the black parts are rendered using black ink.

As a comparison, when the hpijs driver in both full-bleed and normal mode, black is rendered correctly using black ink, when choosing the "black+color" printing option (no such option is available in hpcups).

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, amd64.

Attached is the ouput from hp-check.

Best regards,

This must be somewhere inside the hpcups driver, can someone of the HPLIP developers at HP look into this?
