Hi, hope this is the correct forum for this.
I'm having difficulty using a printer that's attached to a Mac by USB.
The Printer is a HP DeskJet F2480 and is attached to an iMac running OS X 10.9.2 (Mavericks). I have set up printer sharing on the Mac.
I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 on a Lenovo E530 laptop. I can use the System Settings wizard to identify the IP address of the printer and it will print a simple text-only test page (which appears to be generated from a PDF). However, when I use the wizard's database of drivers to identify it as a HP Deskjet F2480, the test page gets stuck and an error message indicates that something (the Mac? Ububtu?) can't open a file in /private/var/spool/cups/temp/. I have also tried to configure the printer on Ubuntu using CUPS and the HP utility, with the same result.
Has anyone dealt with (and hopefully solved!) anything like this?
