As detailed in these instructions, I am using cups-pdf to print from PDF-XChange, which I have installed under Wine 1.6.2 on Ubuntu 14.04. It works great for printing monochrome pages, but I am unable to change the settings to color mode. Using native Linux applications (such as evince or chrome) I am able to print in color, so I believe cups for some reason cannot access the color setting on my printer (I only have one color printer to test with at the moment).
Below is the output of
PageSize/Page Size: Custom.WIDTHxHEIGHT Letter *A4 11x17 A3 A5 B5 Env10 EnvC5 EnvDL EnvISOB5 EnvMonarch Executive Legal Duplex/Double-Sided Printing: DuplexNoTumble DuplexTumble *None Resolution/Resolution: 150x150dpi 300x300dpi *600x600dpi 1200x1200dpi
There is no color option to changed so I am not sure where to go from here.
The reason I want to print from PDFX-Change is that it has more advanced optiones for printing large images/posters on multiple sheets than for example evince. My current workaround is to print to pdf in PDF-XChange and then print that PDF with evince, but if possible I would like to enable color printing directly from PDF-XChange.
Clarification of workflow
After installing PDFX-Change via wine I discovered I cold not print pages from my Xerox-Phaser-7500DN printer. I then installed
cups-pdf as mentioned in the link above and printing is now working. However, all the printed pages are in black and white and I wish to print in color. All the native Ubuntu programs successfully prints in both color and black and white, the problem is only with PDFX-Change (and presumably any other wine application, which I have not tested).
