View Full Version : [ubuntu] laptop printing problem

April 29th, 2010, 08:17 PM
I am having problem with a hp p1006 printing from my laptop. I have recently downloaded 10.4 RC and when I connect the printer to a usb port I get a message saying hp laserjet p1006 requires a proprietary driver when I try to download it using the instructions It says "network connection not detected" although I am online through a home wireless router and am able to send this post.

This printer works with other laptops running windows xp. I can print with ubuntu using a different model hp printer.

The printer shows up as being installed and when for example I try to print a test page there is a message saying that printing has started and printing has been completed but the printer does not react in any way.

Can anybody suggest a solution to this problem? please.
