Unable to print in black and white on Canon Pixma G1000

Post by droidzone » Mon May 01, 2017 8:11 pm

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04, latest Turboprint
Printer: Canon Pixma G1000
Added printer, created a duplicate printer and changed Colour mode to Grayscale. Saved it.
But on printing to this printer profile, it's still printing in color.

I'm printing from Foxit reader, and it shows this line under options:

Code: Select all

lpr -P CanonG1000_BW -o PageSize=A4 -o sides=one-sided -o Resolution=1200dpi
Kindly help me fix this. My printer does not have driver from Canon, so I'm definitely getting a paid license.

Hello,

after changing Colour mode to Grayscale, please enter the following command in a Terminal window:

Code: Select all

lpoptions -p CanonG1000_BW
The output should contain

Code: Select all

ColorModel=Gray
If not, please enter

Code: Select all

lpoptions -p CanonG1000_BW -o ColorModel=Gray
Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks. That output wasnt present. I added that and it works correctly now. Thank you.

Turboprint works very well with G1000. Can I hope that the support with G2000 too is as good? I'm planning to upgrade to G2000 soon.

Yes, TurboPrint also supports the G2000 in the same quality (from the printer side, the G1000 and G2000 are identical).
