It is trying to literally print to pdf when I am asking it to do a standard printing job. Which in turn prints gibberish that is not what I was intending to get.

when you push to print it should give you an option to either print to pdf or to your printer if it is hooked up. Does your computer see the printer?

did you install hpijs or hplip before installing the printer?

I installed the printer via hplip. Let me get you my configuration options. I build it from source.


./configure --enable-foomatic-rip-hplip-install --enable-hpijs-install --enable-dependency-tracking --enable-qt4 --enable-doc-build --disable-cups-ppd-install --disable-foomatic-drv-install --disable-foomatic-ppd-install --disable-policykit --enable-cups-drv-install --enable-hpcups-install --enable-network-build --enable-dbus-build --enable-scan-build --enable-fax-build


Install went fine. There was no screaming for dependences. The version of hplip is 2.9.8 that I installed. I think it is wanting to print to pdf instead of going through the pdf to ps process.

It is also giving me flashing lights at the moment. The little paper icon with the red arrow, and both of the ink leds are flashing. But I am pretty sure it isn't out of ink. And it has plenty of paper. o.o;; It was complaining of communication errors.

try opening CUPS ( http://localhost:631 ) and see if the printer is installed there. If it is, delete it and then readd it.

Printer was there on cups. It gives me blinking lights and doesn't do anything. No gibberish since I installed python-notify and policykit which hp-setup -g had been complaining about not having. Just blinking lights. On off button, add paper and ink carterage lights. Ink is new, paper is full, usb is connected.

Looked again at cups and it said in quotes

/usr/lib/cups/backend/hp failed

No idea what that means for me though.

Gave me gibberish again. The literal coding for a pdf document. It thinks it is a pdf printer when it should be converting to postscript I think? Is there anyway to tell it to print postscript and not think it is suppose to print pdf?

Hope these codes help you :D

are installed to successfully compile HPLIP.
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro
supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball
has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.

sorry but the codes don't mean much to me. Not sure why its not working, generally HP pretty much works as soon as you plug it in and install hplip or hpijs. Did you try removing it and readding it?
