Help for printer and colour


I sent this message on July 18, but I haven't seen any answer to it on
the mailing list archives.  I'm having a problem with a colour printer,
which is the following (Please, send me a Cc: as I'm NOT subscribed to
the mailing list):

I just set up a Xerox DocuPrint C15 printer with kind help from Björn
Brill (thanks) and others.  Now I can print plain text and postscript, but
postscript and PDF keeps using cyan instead of black (whereas plain text
files print ok).


- Xerox DocuPrint C15 colour printer

- can emulate HP DeskJet 500C, 550C and 690C (and, according to Xerox
  helpline, others... )

- software installed: lpr/lpd, gs-aladdin 5.50-8 and magicfilter 1.2-39

- My /etc/printcap (right now it's using the 690 filter, but I've tried
  all dj* filters):

lp|xerox|XeroX Docuprint C15:\

Now, for postscript, both printing from GV and from the command line
through 'lpr file.ps' give me CYAN.  Same thing for pdf files through
acrobat.  I also tried printing a file.html from netscape, and the
result is the same:  if I choose colour I get cyan instead of black, and
if grayscale cyan for everything.

Can anyone tell me how to get black when I mean black?
