FS#540 - Investigate Fuji ASK 2000/2500/4000 (aka Nidec Copal DPB-6000/7000/4000)

They are all related; The 4000 is an 8" version, and the 2000 is an older, slower version of the 2500, both 6" models.


All are rebadged versions of Nidec Copal printers -- ASK4000 == DPB-4000C1, ASK2500 == DPB-7000, ASK2000 == DPB-6000

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  DPB-6000 is confirmed working. All others are similar. This will be closed unles a bug report or tester shows up.

Have USB VID/PIDs for all models.  2000/2500 are identical spool format, 4000 is only slightly different.  No idea about communication protocol.

Support added to Gutenprint 5.3.0-pre. Requires testing!

Tester with a DPB-6000 (aka ASK-2000) showed up. Data format is planar YMC rather than packed BGR. No custom spooler is needed.
