Please, explain. Do you mean the BJC-4000-gimp-print.ppd.gz or another
one?

The pppd files available as Canon, in "/usr/share/cups/model/Canon/" are:

BJC-4000-bjc600.ppd.gz
BJC-4000-gimp-print-ijs.ppd.gz
BJC-4000-gimp-print.ppd.gz

Those are the only ones ofered by Yast. The first one is the "recomended"
one, that works well and reasonably fast, except on photos, that are
simply horrible. The other two work well, but very slow, like seven
minutes per A4 page.

Johannes M. thinks it could be a "broken dithering algorithm". I think I
agree.
