Worked like a charm on my networked Hp Photosmart 2710.
I used the http://hplip.sourceforge.net/ link and installed from the tarball.
Now if only I can find some thing similar for my canon s520. Oh well I will keep looking.
Okay, I have finally edited this guide. It includes the hplip website now, for maximum compatability. Thanks for all those who have contributed to this guide.
Hello. I am running Edgy with an HP Officejet all-in-one 4215 connected via USB and it refuses to work. It isn't detected by either the administration/printing setup or the XSane scanner. I've tried using both hplips and CUPS but to no avail. I had the exact same setup work under Dapper 6.06 just fine, which is why I am so perplexed. Do I need to downgrade some software, or are there any other methods out there I should try? Thanks!
Yeah, I have hplip 1.6.9 installed
If this helps, when I run the hplip 1.6.10 installer in the automatic mode, I get this at the end:
INSTALL MISSING REQUIRED DEPENDENCIES
warning: There are 6 missing REQUIRED dependencies.
note: Installation of dependencies requires an active internet connection.
note: You may be prompted for a password. Please enter the appropriate password for your system for 'sudo'
warning: Missing REQUIRED dependency: gcc (gcc - GNU Project C and C++ Compiler)
error: This installer cannot install this dependency for your distro/OS and/or version.
error: Installation cannot continue without this dependency. Please manually install this dependency and re-run this installer.
According to synaptic, I have gcc installed too... perhaps it's the wrong version. Any thoughts? Thanks!
try this in a terminal:then you might want to try:Code:sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgradeand then try the installer again.Code:sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -f
