    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    Hope I'm not covering old ground. I've installed my 7410 w/ hplip 3 times now. each time the install goes well, every thing looks good, and I print a test page. BUT once I shut down or reboot no more printing. it says it is printing but nothing happens. other than that I'm really liking fiesty a lot. I'm an old newbie so you will have to keep it simple for me. Thank you.

    Can you run in a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/hplip restart
    and

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart
    and try printing again what happens?

    yo, kalosaurusrex, I had forgotten about the idea we had to make a 3rd party project sub-forum for HPLIP, it was so long ago, and I did send 2 PM's to ubuntu-geek, but he never responded...maybe if you try he'll listen to you!

    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I ran both strings, one at a time, got OK's on every thing but still can't print. As near as I can tell, in my ignorance, every thing looks good. printer shows up in tool box, icon shows up in tool bar w/ print job #, etc. I just realized I don't know how to cut & paste into an email in Ubuntu yet, so I can't show terminal. sorry about that. I'm learning as fast as my poor old brain can go.

    Thanks again.

    jah43@mymachine:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/hplip restart

    No need to 'cut and paste'. Highlight the text you want to copy, go to where you want it to be copied to, and center click. The highlighted text will copy over. Doesn't matter how much text. I've copied some pretty long docs that way!

    Thank you, Steven8,

    That was really one of those slap your forehead things. I don't know how long it would have taken me to figure that out

    Thanks a lot

    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    When installing HPLIP, understanding that I have a network (home network) printer (DeskJet F4100), where do I obtain the network setting that are necessary to complete the HPLIP installation? Where on the Windows XP machine do I find the IP address or whatever this installation needs?

    The best thing to do is NOT install hpoj and work with hplip as it as extended support and functionality.

    I've tested over 500 hp printers with HPLIP and have tested with ubuntu very frequently. The step by step on our website is straight forward and I should hope will help users install and configure their printer easily. As well I'm open to any suggestions on making our instructions easier and more straight forward so feel free to give me ideas!

    Re: HOWTO: Install HP Printers for Beginners

    It worked great for me. As a matter of fact, since first starting this Ubuntu "experience" this is one of the few things that actually worked as advertised. Thanks to everyone for this, me and my printer (HP5180) are getting along much better now.....
