No Option for Black and White When Using CUPS and PPD

Product Name: Other - specify product in post

Hello, everyone!

We recently purchased a new AltaLink C8145 and we are attempting to use it in conjuction with CUPS.

When using the generic PPD the only options we are given under "Print Quality/Color" are "High Resolution" / "Enhanced" / "Toner Saver".

We would like to set this specific printer queue to only black and white but we don't have the option.

Here is a screenshot (hopefully it works):

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Gibibit, 


I see no one has responded to this post yet. So, at this point I would recommend contacting your local Xerox Support Department to speak with a Product Specialist for more assistance. Please call 1-800-821-2797.
