    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    So I followed this tutorial yet my printer still is not showing up I have a HP Deskjet All-in-one F4280. I am not really sure what to say. It just isn't recognized even after manually installing the HPLIP. I am running Lucid. Anyone else been having this problem?

    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    I have installed Ubuntu Linux using WUBI on a second drive on my computer. I am trying to install an HP Laserjet 1300 printer. My computer is networked using a Linksys WRT54G router. The printer is plugged into a USB port of a Hawking HPS12U print server which is plugged into one port of the router. How do I get Ubuntu set up to print under these circumstances.

    Thank you.

    Assuming you are trying to configure the printer using hp-setup and using HPLIP (HP Linux Imaging and Printing). HPLIP does not support third party printer network sharing devices. HPLIP does support the HP Jetdirect however.

    This is because devices other than Jetdirect do not let HPLIP communicate with the printer.

    In most cases, this is because port 9100 is not open on the device.

    I have a HP Photosmart B8550 and the default don't give the correct controls. Because it isn't a normal printer (near professional quality dual tray printer that is prints a maximum of 13x19inch photos. It doesn't configure correctly.

    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    Is anyone else having problems with HP LaserJets and Ubuntu 10.04?
    I have a HP LaserJet 3015 and am running a dual boot with Windows 7.

    Printer is automatically detected and works fine on: Windows 7, Windows XP, LinuxMint, and older versions of Ubuntu.

    But when I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, when I try to print it just adds the job to the print queue and it never prints. After awhile I get a message saying that Ubuntu is unable to communicate with my printer. (or something to that effect). I can't even print a test page.

    I have tried installing HPLIP following the directions given, but get the same behavior (can't communicate with the printer). I have tried unplugging the power cord and usb cable and plugging them back in (as per the directions I am following). But still not communicating.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Same here with an HP PhotoSmart C3180. I downloaded the HPLIP and installed the printer (using the driver for HP 3100 series) but I get no response when I try to print (even the test page).
    Can anyone help please?
