This package contains an IJS printer driver for Ghostscript, which
adds support for most inkjet printers and some LaserJet printers
manufactured by HP.  It is also required for HPLIP fax support.
The Debian package of hpijs includes the so-called rss patch, to use
pure black ink instead of composite black in printers that don't do
color map conversion in firmware.
HPIJS can take advantage of Ghostscript IJS KRGB support when
available, to enhance black printing on printers that do color
map conversion in firmware and are thus not affected by the old
rss patch.
Users of the CUPS printing system are advised to also install the
hplip package, and use the hp CUPS backend to send data to the printer.
HPLIP supports USB, networked and parallel-port devices, and enables
extended HPIJS functionality such as border-less printing.
Selecting any hpijs ppd in CUPS will use hpijs automatically.
HPIJS is meant to be used through the foomatic system (see the
foomatic-filters package or foomatic-rip in the cups-filters package).
