If I print a colored document from windows XP to a color printer - Ricoh C2500 - I
just get a black and white document.
Yes I checked Global Options/Printing/Color Printing.

|BTW this is with jEdit4.3.1 and Java1.6.0_16|

|It looks like the printing code hasn't been touched in a really long time, and some of the code is not using the more modern (as in Java 1.4+) printing API where it probably should be.|

|Thanks for the quick response!
I'm not convinced that this is a Java1.4+ issue as color printing still works on OSX10.6 running java6

|For me it works with three different Windows printers (Jaws PDF Creator, HP DeskJet
980c, Microsoft Office Document Image Writer) and different settings for the workarounds.
Maybe Your color printer driver lets You choose to print black and white...;-) Also,
could You try other drivers?
Windows XP SP3
SUN JRE 1.6.0_18

|This fails to work for me on Max OSX 10.6.2 using an HP Photosmart C7280 and jEdit
4.3.1. I selected duplex and color, and got simplex and black. Here's the Java info:

|eobusek, that makes the issue weirder. In my case duplex does not work on OSX but
color does. See my other issue... Just for sure, you checked Global Options/Printing/Color

|schwenn I will try tomorrow when I'm back at my work.|

|Global Options/Printing/Color Printing was not checked. Interesting though, as in the Print dialog, Black only printing was disabled - color was the only choice. But when I enabled Color in the Global Options, the print out was in color. So with that checked, I get color. But duplex printing is still an issue.|

|Yes that radio box is behaving weird too... not sure if that is a separate issue though.
The duplex issue on OSX is here
Maybe you can post your findings there too to help the people working on it and to indicate I'm not the only one having the issue

|Has this been fixed?|

||I'm still not able to print in color from jEdit -- Windows 7, Samsung C365W printer. It comes out in black and white whatever I do to the global and print colour settings :(|
