Hi!

You know if there's any driver or app that let's me choose the quality of printing (i.e draft) in my Ubuntu 8.10 with the printer hpdeskjet 990cxi professional series. It's really annoying having to boot to windows xp partition just because of the "draft" option on the printing. I've realized that in Ubuntu there's the "Prind head passes per line" option, which if I set to the minimum it's supposed to print faster. But the speed is really slow comprared to windows "draft" option.

Thanks!

You can check here to assure you're using the newest HPLIP driver and install from the same location if not.
