I have spent a few hours on this, trying various combinations of instructions. The nearest I got was when I followed the instructions from the HPLIP site, but it ended up with telling me some dependencies were not installed. I installed them using the Mintinstall tool, but still no go.
Before I spend any more time on this, I would like to know if there is a user out there who has got this particular printer to run on the Mint 7 distribution? If somebody has, then I know it is at least possible, and I will persevere!
I am attempting to install my hp Deskjet D1660 printer and I am getting a dependency error that states I am in need of the GNU gcc C+ or C++ compiler. I know I have the latest gcc compiler installed on my system already. I am running SUSE 11.3.
Code: warning: Missing REQUIRED dependency: gcc (gcc - GNU Project C and C++ Compiler) warning: This installer cannot install 'gcc' for your distro/OS and/or version. error: Installation cannot continue without this dependency. Please manually install this dependency and re-run this installer.

I recently installed 10.04 and the printer was working for a while. Now when I print something the print que icon shows up and goes out like it has printed but nothing prints. I ran the troubleshooter and got this.
I've looked at all the threads that I can find on the HP Deskjet D1660. I am unable to print. I've also tried to manually install the hplip files with no help. The only thing that I can find says to use a driver 3.10.2 but all I can find is 3.10.6 and 220.127.116.11. But non of this is working. XP prints fine but I want Ubuntu to work fine too. This is why I bought this printer in the first place.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an emachine with a celeron micro processor and it has 2 gig memory. I have tried the usb cable in every usb slot available and ever thing else. When I go go print a job the hp panel shows that job is sent to printer and that the printer is printing it. Unfortunately it never get printed. I have tried even removing cups and hplip using synaptic and reinstalling them but no help.
I started to install Fedora thinking I was just going to place it in the / and /home partitions I already have but the installer only seems to give me the option to use the whole disk.I have 3 / and 3 /home partitions 2 of each are occupied by Linux Mint and Mint KDE so I wanted to use the last / and /home for Fedora.
I updated to the recent 9.10 version of Ubuntu and found that my printer no longer works. When trying to print, the printer just blinks and *occasionally* makes a noise and prints out a partial line of text or whatever. It's a USB connecting HP Deskjet D1420 that is not a network printer and does not need to be networked.
I seem to be having on going issues with my printer. I was able to print a garbled test page but I get a result from terminal of printer HP-Deskjet-f2400 now printing HP-Deskjet-f2400-0. enabled since Mon May 31 15:45:04 2010 Connecting to printer... and it just sits there. Nothing is in error with the printer itself though.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer. Everything works except for my HP Deskjet D2660 printer. The printer is recognized, but it will not print. HP-check shows no errors or warnings. The printer works fine on another computer with Ubuntu 9.10
We recent got this printer as the three others are old, hard to maintain, and don't work. However, there's been no end of trouble. We've had to initially install it under Windows, which is no trouble. Intending to put it to wireless use, I've hit a problem. The HP printer tool in Slackware 13.0 claims that CUPS either isn't installed (which it is) or isn't running (which it is)
So I kept it on USB and shared it, providing yet more trouble. Slackware again seems to have trouble with CUPS (using the Printing tool from GSB). Now, Ubuntu Jaunty, the other Linux on the network, can see this printer, but doesn't have a driver for it, meaning it can't use it.
What I'd like to do is switch it to wireless. I can do that, but I don't know what to install on the two Ubuntu PCs to get the HP printer tool, or if on Jaunty, it still needs to be given the drivers for it, and on Slackware, CUPS is the problem (Though may be solved with an install of something else before long)
I tried setting up my printer, HP Deskkjet D2660, using CUPS. I enabled the CUPS service and configure the printer through it. But when I try to test print, my printer wont print. Now, i tried to look at the net for possible answer and somewhere, I read that my printer needs the newer version of hplip than the one included with the default slackware 13.0 install.
1. Do i really need to update hplip just to make my printer work? Do anyone uses the same printer model and make it work without updating the said package?
2. If i really have to update it, is there any Slackbuild script I can use to make the hplip-3.10.6.tar.gz into slackware package? I prefer creating package than installing using make.
I installed the Printer, but Xsane does not recognize the scanner, how can i acivate the scanner. my system is Debian Lenny 507 Kde i386. I have looked through the posts in the forum, but found nothing that can help me. can somebody point me in the right
OS: Ubuntu 10.10 I've been trying to get my HP DeskJet D2660 printer to work for a while now, but I am having several problems that I can't seem to get around. For the driver I have 2 options. The hpijs (hplip) or the hpcups driver. Neither of them work properly.
The HPLIP driver and control software keeps telling me that the stuff I print has printed correctly, but my printer does nothing. It just sits there laughing at me whilst I get popups on my monitor telling me that the print job start and completes. I have successfully printed the print head calibration paper and aligned them as told by the HP software, but after I have done so, it just goes back to sleep. Nothing prints, not even the test page. I can't understand why it prints the calibration sheet just fine and then, afterwards, it won't print anything else but tells me everything prints fine.
The HPCUPS driver works just fine, but it has these really bad shadows on everything I print caused by incorrect alignment of the print heads. There seems to be no option of correcting this using the HPCUPS driver. So, what I have is a HPLIP driver which allows me to calibrate but won't print, and a HPCUPS driver which prints just fine, but won't allow me to calibrate. My HPLIP driver version: 3.10.6 (official from Ubuntu) I've also tried downloading and installing the latest (3.10.9), but with no luck. Prints calibration just fine, then nothing else.
I'm using a HP Deskjet F380 multifunction printer on a ubuntu 9.1 machine. It recognises it as an F300 series printer and so far it prints and scans very well. The problem is that I usually print 2 pages per sheet and double side on windows but I cannot do it on linux (in this case the option of printing odd pages first and even pages second is useless). I see there is an option in your printer preferences to print double side but it doesn't work.
I have installed HPLIP and cups found the driver for the printer and all seemed to be setup fine. However when I tried to send a test print, cups showed the job status as stopped. If I try to send anything from Open Office, the page never prints. Not sure where to go from here.
Is there any Linux distribution which supports the mentioned printer out of the box. Tried with Mint 10, I downloaded hplip 3.11.1 and followed instructions on hplipopensource, but OMG it is so complicated..I ran the bash script upon downloading the file. I am unable to install all the needed dependencies. For some it says not installed, When I try to install, it says it is in conflict with some other package and cannot install! I have never struggled so much in installing a printer. I was thinking Ubuntu and Mint are probably the most popular around. I am willing to shift to any distro which supports my printer. Also, scan should work. It is also not getting recognized by Xsane and other scanning apps!
The printing has been running without problem ever since the installation of this box at least >1 year. Today I found it stop working with following warning: Code: Filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups for printer Deskjet-5700 not available
I'm running a standard 13.1 32 bit install with an HP deskjet 990C, run off of USB. Until today everything has printed properly. Now nothing prints. Nothing has been installed unless it came through slackpkg, and yes it is still on the correct setting for arch and revision. CUPS shows printer as installed, accepting jobs an idle. No error messages are appearing but nothing is reaching the printer. The info I can glean is from the error logs in CUPS:
I have recently acquired me a HP all-in-one printer model HP Deskjet F2483. The printer works fine but am having issues getting the scanner to work. Following instructions I found to Google, this is what my shell looks like:
Code: sh-4.0$ sane-find-scanner # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer. # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
I have an old, but still usable, HP Deskjet Plus inkjet printer that I have connected to the parallel port of my Fedora 13 box. I can (apparently) configure the printer using the usual print configuration tools, and have selected the recommend foomatic driver (HP DeskJet Plus Foomatic/pcl3 (recommended)) - but when I try to print the test page the job gets queued and nothing else happens. The jobs simply show as pending in the printer queue.
Current uri is parallel:/dev/lp0.
As a side note, my Epson printer on the USB port works fine, but it's using CUPS + Gutenprint v5.2.6 Simplified. Should I be trying something with a different (e.g. CUPS) driver, or a different way of specifying the foomatic driver, or what?
It's been awhile since I last used my printer in F12. There have been a lot of updates via yum done since whenever that last time was so I don't know precisely which update and when broke things. Attempting to use it today was a no go. It would appear to be a 'udev' issue according to last message logged into /var/log/messages.
My wife's Windows computer is connected to same printer via a parallel cable and it works fine for her so it's not a hardware failure.Consider this solved. Reason for printer failure: Major OP error. The solution was actually rather simple: sudo service cups start
I've installed F14 [32 bit] and trying to configure a HP DeskJet 812C on my local netowrk[lpd://192.168.1.35/PASSTHRU] However, the "New Printer" wizard calls KPackageKit that fails and reports, "Could not find printer driver in any configured software source". It is just a dead end!
I can't get the scanner to work. I get this: [pedroski@fangshan ~]$ scanimage -L device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname USB2.0 1.3M UVC WebCam virtual device device `hpaio:/usb/Deskjet_1050_J410_series?serial=CN0CN3H3CZ05HW' is a Hewlett-Packard Deskjet_1050_J410_series all-in-one
and this [pedroski@fangshan ~]$ scanimage -d hpaio:/usb/Deskjet_1050_J410_series?serial=CN0CN3H3CZ05HW -T scanimage: open of device hpaio:/usb/Deskjet_1050_J410_series?serial=CN0CN3H3CZ05HW failed: Device busy.
Fedora came with 'Simple Scan' That also returns 'device busy'. Can this scanner work under Fedora? I have tried turning it off, then on. I have rebooted. I have hpijs and hplip installed also hplip-gui. I have put myself in the group lp.
I'm an happy user of 11.2 but I've a weird and very annoying problem with my old but still good for me hp 710c Printer.
I should say that I have this problem on with 11.2 because printer runs well either on windows or with other linux distro.
the problem is that when I try to print anything I get: /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed
I've found an other thread (11.2 - Cups ends /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed - openSUSE Forums) regarding the same problem but with 11.2 milestone 1 and the solutions seemed to be to downgrade to an older cups and ghostscript version.
I had set up a newly purchased HP F4488 using HPLIP, I installed it on my Fedora 10 desktop and it worked fine for the past 2 days. Suddenly, it is failing to print. The scanner works and the photocopier works. When a print job is initialized there is an error and the printer gets disabled.
