Hello Richard, Robert and all,
So far as I know, we have still an unsolved issue to synchronize the 
printer ICC-profile with the driversettings.

My proposed idea to embedd the driver settings as metadata in the 
printer ICC-profile and than to embedd the printer ICC-profil into the 
output of CUPS ..toraster, so that e.g. "rastertogutenprint" can extract 
the driversettings from the rasterfile to print would be not supported 
by the CUPS team / Michael Sweet.

Richard, do you think it would make sense, if colord could communicate 
with Gutenprint like it communicates with GhostScript ?

As colord seems to able to read / extract metadata from an ICC-profile, 
it may makes sense, that colord delivers the driver setup to Gutenprint.

Best regards
