This driver is obsolete. Recommended replacement driver: hplip
This driver is free software.
Type: Ghostscript built-in

Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler, PPD aware applications/clients,

Important for Windows clients: The CUPS PostScript driver for Windows has a bug which makes it choking on PPD files which contain GUI texts longer than 39 characters. Therefore it is recommended to use Adobe's PostScript driver. If you still want to use the CUPS driver, please mark "GUI texts limited to 39 characters" to get an appropriate PPD file.

This is an adaptation of the hp850 driver done by Rene' Harsch. It supports the 970's duplexer, although when duplex is on there is a minor quality issue.

This driver, like all modern HP drivers, was written by reverse-engineering part of the command set for the printer. HP refused to help; Rene' sensibly suggests that people not buy HP products because of this uncoperative policy.

Rene's web page, with the instructions, is in German. German-impaired readers can probably follow them anyway; they're step-by-step and show all the commands to build the driver.

The driver takes the same arguments as the cdj850 driver, plus the three described on Rene's website.
