    Try opening cups browser and check the printer settings and defaults there I know my hp printers need all the setup done in the cups admin before they show correctly in the print dialogues.

    Also, check that colour printing works by trying to print from a different app (eg a browser page).

    As a last resort, try using hplip. Make sure you have the gui installed and invoke it by typing hp-setup in a terminal window.

    open office 2.4 Writer cannot print color *resolved*

    Whych, thanks. Turns out, it was a simple matter of the file somehow being corrupt. Rewrote the document, and all is well. Thanks again!
