B/W printing on WorkCentre 7545 from Mac

I have a WorkCentere 7545 set up and printing well from a Mac.  I would like the default print option to be black/white not color.  This is an easy setting in Windows but I can't find a black/white option in the Mac driver.  Is there some way to change to black/white by default?

How, exactly, can you change it in CUPS? I'm looking to do the same thing with a WC 7655 and am stumped. It doesn't seem to be responding to PPD changes.

Thanks,

Re: B/W printing on WorkCentre 7545 from Mac

normally you can change it in the printing defaults in the cups

 

an other way is to open the .ppd file with an text editor, search for the code where banner = on , make it off , reinstall the printer with that modified .ppd file

Are you using accounting codes with this printer and the Mac?
