if if it has four cartridges, your desktop printer probably expects RGC 
(this means that your driver converts your job in RGB and then the 
printer converts it back to CMYK.

yes, but it's harder to produce CMYK from latex.

since the persons having asked the question doesn't seem to have a deep 
color knowledges, it's probably better for him to stick to RGB.

but why do simple, when one can do it complicated!
