Is the printer correctly identified?
Yes Ubuntu picked up the new printer straight away

 What is the PC - Printer connection?

LAN, USB, parallel printer cable, or serial printer cable?

Have you been tweaking the colour settings or colour matching settings
and changed the "gamma" or "levels"?
Probably not since I don't know what this means.

 What does the printer self-test test page show?
I have only printed the Ubuntu test page which shows no yellow
