Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-21 15:36:59 UTC
You're using one of the HP Deskjet drivers, and you're
setting bpp=1, correct?  The driver is broken in this respect.

Try bpp=8 (that's still monochrome), or using a different
driver if that's the case.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-29 16:19:59 UTC
rhs-printfilters 1.46-4 no longer allows 1bpp for cdj-based drivers.
This should fix the problem.
