The "HP-Photosmart_2600-hpijs.ppd" is only the printer definition file ........ you probably still need to get the actual driver?? And HPLIP too!
HP Linux Printing and Imaging - gs IJS driver (hpijs)
This package contains the hpijs binary which provides Ghostscript with an IJS driver for most inkjet printers and some LaserJet printers manufactured by HP.
It includes the so-called rss patch, to use pure black ink instead of composite black in printers that don't do color map conversion in firmware. It can take advantage of Ghostscript IJS KRGB support to do the same on printers that do color map conversion in firmware.
Users of the CUPS printing system are advised to also install the hplip package, and use the hp CUPS backend to send data to the printer. HPLIP supports USB, networked and parallel-port devices, and enables extended HPIJS functionality such as border-less printing. Selecting any hpijs ppd in CUPS will use hpijs automatically.
Users of spoolers other than CUPS connected through USB or parallel ports are advised to install the hpoj package. Extended HPIJS functionality will not be available, however, as hpoj does not support bi-dir mode.
HPIJS is meant to be used through the foomatic system (see the foomatic-filters package).
