Hi all, i have installed cups on my box. My printer is found, and i can print 
to it. When i look at the paper however i get only lines of random dots.

Here'e the packets installed. Unfortunately i don't know the exact order 
anymore:

./CUPS-1.1.20.sh &&
./foomatic-db-20040127.sh &&
./foomatic-filters-3.0.0.sh &&
./foomatic-db-engine-3.0.0.sh &&
./foomatic-db-hpijs-1.4-1.sh &&
./ESP-Ghostscript-7.05.5.sh &&

when i use the web-interface to add my printer i chose this driver:

HP DeskJet 500 Foomatic/hpijs (recommended)
Description: 
 Location: 
 Printer State: idle, accepting jobs. 
Device URI: parallel:/dev/lp0

Did i do something terrible by installing the foomatic drivers?

Regards, cedric
