Re: Ubuntu requires HPLIP, and can't print directly to CUPS?
Per the wiki, I tried running
It didn't discover the printer and exited. This is probably because I haven't got HPLIP working on the server connected to the printer, and HPLIP needs to be running on the server and client for this to work? I am currently getting
"error: HPMUDEXT could not be loaded. Please check HPLIP installation"
when I run any of the hp-* tools on the server. I am working through this on the NSLU2 forum.
I researched LPD printing on the internet, and it seems you must have the HP tools working on the computer attached to the printer to find the queue name for the LPD URL. Is this true? If there is an alternate way to find the queue name, I could try it.
It seems wierd I can print fine with the printer attached locally to the Ubuntu computer, and I can print fine with the printer on the server using CUPS and Windows as the client, but I can't get the printer to work with CUPS and Ubuntu as the client. Perhaps I don't understand something fundamentally different with the Linux printing infrastructure though.
