How to make ADOBE’s Generic Postscript Printer create Documents in Colour

Adobe’s “Generic Postscript Printer” can be downloaded here. However, by default, it prints text in grey only. This is, because it needs a the postscript colour definitions to be loaded during installation process. In order to do so, start the installer, choose “FILE” as port and after this dialogue you will be asked what printer you want to choose. The only entry you see is “Generic Postscript Printer”. Now download the file defpscol.ppd (mirror of defpscol.ppd) and select it by browsing to the place you put it within the Adobe installer dialogue.  Choose it and you’re done.
