Ubuntu: How can I print in black and white in Evince?


What option should I select in the (Evince) print dialog to print in black and white using only the (cheaper) black ink cartridge - not black as a composite of other colours?

The options I see in the 'Colour' tab are:

  • 'Grayscale'
  • 'Inverted Grayscale'
  • 'RGB Color'
  • 'CMY Color'
  • 'CMYK'
  • 'KCMY'


You usually want Grayscale. At least it works like that on all the printers that I know. Of course it could be driver-dependent, so more data about the printer model could yield you a better answer.
