Selecting the right driver

The test page will output some text and an image of the printer icon.

If the image does not look right, try another driver.

1. Start with the B/W laserjet pcl5 driver.
If step 1 works, then try the color laserjet pcl5 driver if you have a color laserjet.
If step 1 does not work, then try the inkjet pcl3 driver.

The "inkjet pcl3 gui format 2" driver only works with some older printers.

I'm got the following on the todo list:
- inkjet pcl3 format 6 for higher quality on some newer hp printers
- canon bjnp protocol for some newer canon network printers (older canons use raw port 9100 like hp)
