Please answer to the list. The manual explains basic things only. You need a more sophisticated filter for advanced tasks. Do the following: (1) Install print/apsfilter. Please be careful about default page format (A4 vs. Letter) since apsfilter will install several other packages according to this. Apsfilter is not very big itself, but has a lot of dependencies. (2) Run /usr/local/share/apsfilter/SETUP. I'm not 100% sure what driver you should choose on the main menu (hpijs is recommended for your printer), but please try drivers from sections 3 and 4 of apsfilter drivers list (concentrate on PCL support). (3) Try various printing qualities, colour modes, and dpi settings in order to make the best output of the test page. Apsfilter will allow you to print all possible formats (incl. DVIs, PDFs, images, HTML, Gimp's XCF and much more) using lpd directly.
