           Summary: IJS printer driver interface: "Unsupported color
                    conversion request" in certain print quality modes
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: 9.02
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P4
         Component: Printer Driver

On Ubuntu Natty (Ghostscript 9.01) and Oneiric (Ghostscript 9.02) I have a
problem with the IJS printer driver interface when used with the PXLJR driver
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/hp-pxl-jetready/, in Ubuntu installed by
default). The draft and normal printout modes of the driver make Ghostscript
abort with a "Unsupported color conversion request" error, the high quality
printout mode works correctly.

The Ghostscript command line for the draft mode is the following:

-sIjsServer=ijs_pxljr -sDeviceManufacturer="HEWLETT-PACKARD" -sDeviceModel="hp
-dDuplex=false -r600
-dIjsUseOutputFD -sOutputFile=- file.pdf > out.prn

file.pdf is an arbitrary PDF file.

grepping /usr/lib/ for the error message "Unsupported color conversion request"
shows that it is only in libjpeg, but the problem occurs also with PDF files
which contain only text.

In the case of failure, out.prn contains the following Ghostscript error

Error: /ioerror in --showpage--

For normal mode we have the same command line but with "Quality:Quality=0" and
for the (working) high quality mode with "Quality:Quality=2".
