Hmm.  Righto.

It's a PostScript printer.  The printer driver is part of the OS.  All
HP needs to do is supply a PPD file to tell the host PC how to deal with
the special features of the printer - and you can use the printer
without that PPD file.

So I don't think it's that.

Being aware of HP's faults in that line (having found out the hard way
through owing an HP inkjet that lost the ability to print two-sided due
to an OS upgrade), I decided I'd never again buy a non-PS printer from

Thanks for the idea,
