    Do any of you have the same problem?
    Yes, I do have.
    I just started to install the printer, and noticed that any change in dpp or turning RGB colors to greyscale, does not print anything. Never had that problem before.

    Something to do with the new cups i saw flying by?

    sudo dpkg -l | grep cnijfilter

    edit, extra information

    With terminal -> system-config-printer no success either.

    Adding lines as described in
    printing in grayscale simply doesnot exist. Returning to the 3.40 drivers and editing like explained in this blog, is for me, untill now, the only way to print in grayscale.
