View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP C4580 may not be connected.....sometimes!

April 6th, 2009, 04:21 PM
Hi everyone. I have been a lurker for over a year now and thanks to the wonderful help here I have not needed to post any troubles until now.

I bought a HP C4580 all-in-one and installed the HPLIP package on my 8.10 (now upgraded to 9.04 beta). The scanner seems to work well, and the printer is a champ when printing from OOo or firefox. However, when I try to print a photo from Picasa, Gimp or Gnome photo printer, I get a "Printer may not be connected" error.

Can anyone advise if this is a known issue or might I have something set up incorrectly?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
