Ubuntu – How to print using only the color cartridge


My printer ran out of black ink, but the color cartridge still has a lot of ink. I want to print using only ink from the color cartridge. I used to be able to do this using advanced printer settings of the printer driver in Windows 7. I was wondering if and how it can be done using Ubuntu. I'm also new to Ubuntu,so I have no idea how to fiddle around with advanced settings.

My printer is a Canon iP2770 inkjet.
