I have a strange issue with Brother MFC-5440CN printer.
When I print from Linux/CUPS, it prints colours fine.
When I print from Windows, using Windows drivers (without Samba), it
also prints fine.
When I print from Windows through Samba/CUPS (drivers added using
cupsaddsmb...), it gives me wrong colours:
expected | result
yellow | blue
blue | red
red | green
green | dark-blue
It only happens from certain applications, like OpenOffice, Firefox, or
When I print from Adobe Acrobat Reader, it gives me correct colours
(documents which gave wrong colours in OpenOffice, print correct colours
when exported to PDF and printed with Adobe Acrobat Reader).
I have Samba 3.0.20 and CUPS 1.2.1, the clients are XP SP2.
