I don't know which driver I'm using honestly.  I don't have my laptop 
with me to validate. What I know is that the 2605dn is in the perfectly 
supported and that it's installed through the hp-toolbox thing.

If you look at the comments for the HP2600n on linuxprinting, they are 
related to a bug in Ghostscript 8.14/8.15. They offer three work around: 
GhostScript 7x, GhostScript 8.54 or the use of a different color 
profile... Maybe it's already fixed for Feisty/Gutsy or using this "fix" 
is the way to do...
