Public bug reported:

My Canon S9000 wide-format photo printer works fine with this paper in
windows or TurboPrint.

With standard Gutenprint driver bjc-s9000, image is extremely dark and
grainy.  See attached scan versus original in linked album:

I've tried changing the following driver settings with no significant
difference noted in IQ:

  - Color Model RGB vs CYMK 
  - Paper type photo vs glossy photo paper vs "photo paper plus glossy"
  - Ink type CYMK vs "Photo CcMmYK Color".

Other notes:
  - Gutenprint v5.2.11.
