I have made a writer document with two colour pictures in it and a
text. When I print the document on a Samsung CLP-320 in colour mode then
they are printed like sephia (that is how it looks like most). When I
print the same picture straight from Windows (same machine and printer),
the print comes out in colour... So is there a setting in Writer which
causes this, or is Writer doing something to my print stream to get this
Any help would be appreciated.
Try to see if the right device is picked in the LibreOffice print
Sometimes the wrong driver is picked.
Are you saying you are doing both tests using Windows? One with Writer
and one outside of Writer? Or is it a Windows vs. Linux question?
I run Ubuntu most of the time, and I prefer it. Let me say this about
some Linux drivers for some printers. I have found that some color
printerdrivers, HP color laser driver the worst, that some of these
Linux drivers tend to get the colors for the images wrong. The HP Color
Laserjet 2600, I hadbut now dead, tended to print the images more
towards the brown shading. I have seen other Linux drivers do the
same. Mostly HP printers. I have seen it on an Epson Artisan 810
inkjet printer, but not too noticeable unless you place the Windowsprint
side-by-side with the Linux print.
Now, as I was reminded recently, you may have a choice of drivers types
for your printer. I see the following options for Print > Properties >
Device, in the Printer Language Type "box".
Postscript (Level from driver)
Postscript Level 1
Postscript Level 2
Postscript Level 3
I had some problems printing a complex document with the default setting
of "Automatic: PDF", yet, when I changed the option to Postscript Level
3, it worked fine.
So, please try Postscript Level 3 first, then try the others to seewhich
one prints the best.
For my printers, I am able to access some printer controls that will
modify the ink density and the color shading to make the printer's color
prints look more like the color standards for the printing industry.
