12 I recently had print related problem on a HP Laserjet with default CUPS
13 driver ("HP LaserJet Series PCL 6 CUPS"): in my case when evince prints
14 a PDF document containing text and a QR image the text is rendered
15 correctly while the QR is rendered black on dark gray background, making
16 it unusable. The same PDF prints fine from GIMP, so I exclude a driver
17 issue. I've not tested LibreOffice.
19 Based on your email I downgraded lcms to 2.12 from 2.13 and the evince
20 issue is gone (thanks!). So it's not exactly your problem, but it is
21 related to lcms.
