  print colors accurately

  colors are distorted (not a printer problem, because copying and scanning works accurately)

  Original USB open-source printer driver (cnijfilter-
  mg5200series-3.40-1) works, after installing


  The current driver in CUPS 1.7.2 distorts the colors (turning black
  into red, blue into red etc.)
