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 driver is available in the Ghostscript Printer Application

HPIJS is HP's universal printer driver for most of their non-PostScript printers. It comes as a part of HPLIP, HP Linux Imaging and Printing. HPLIP is a complete driver suite which also includes scanning, copying, and fax drivers for multi-function devices and also the printer maintenance and management utility hp-toolbox.

The HPIJS driver is only one of the two flavors of HP's printer driver. HP has recently added the CUPS Raster driver hpcups and uses this driver by default currently. HPIJS is still included in HPLIP, but more for backward compatibility.

HP provides PPD files for all their supported printers and both driver flavors.

Many non-HP printers are compatible to HP printers as they use the same page description language, PCL 5e. This language was introduced with the HP LaserJet 4 and it is probably the most used standard page description language after PostScript. Even most of the PostScript printers understand PCL 5e which can be used as alternative language if the printer has not enough memory to render PostScript. This driver entry generates PPD files to use HPIJS with PCL 5e laser printers which are not from HP, and so allows the use of this high-quality printer driver with a wide range of printers.

Double-sided printing and tray selection is supported, but tray numbers may be different.
