The HOW-TO is very good. I appreciate the effort that has been put in to it. I am stuck somewhere in the woods here. I followed the build instructions and all the USE flags and everything emerged with no problems.

All the daemons appear to be running. I went out and got the approproate PPD file. When I run the probe, everything appears to work. At the pulldown for "Device" under CUPS it says "hp no_device_found". So the config file was updated but some bit of information was not located. I tried the HP Deskjet route and that seemed to work to some degree. I get:

from CUPS. So, something is still not happy. Clues are very welcome.

Hi there i have a different problem, my printer is HP DeskJet3650 at first it doesn' wanted to print any test page but everything was allright, lsusb showed me that i have a printer connected to USB

Code:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000


Than i have downloaded ppd file for my printer and also instaled cups and added it to rc-update, configured cups in administration tools via web browser, but it doesn't wanted to print any than tried to do emerging foomatic with it's databases still nothing at last something helped me when i downloaded hplip, it probes mine printer and else and finally i can print but when i try to get into HP Device Manager i can' get to it, cause it says i don' have any HP devices and i have to add tham in cups but i have it added allready and also typing in terminal hp-testpage says to me there is no any hp-devices but hp-probe says

PostPosted: Sat Sep 17, 2005 1:42 am    Post subject: Correction from this morning's post Reply with quote

I went back through my notes and found that was a problem with the PyQt module before hplip emerged. The PyQt actually out of date. Once it was brought up to date, and hplip was re-emerged, and the daemons were restarted, the CUPS test print page that was queued up from a previous test came right out very nicely.

The only comment I would make regarding the whole document would be to move the emerge of hplip to the end of the emerge code window. That way all of the dependencies would be up to date for anybody who cut and pasted the command string into a terminal window. My .02.

Thanks again to the author and contributors. Very nice work.

mhoskins, glad you got it working. Sorry I didn't reply; but I don't have as much time as I'd like to check many forums anymore. The emerge string has been changed as you suggested, BTW. Never thought of that. Good tip.

Rucok, my first question; did you emerge hplip with the usb flag? Second, how exactly did you add the printer in CUPS? With the 'USB Printer #n' option? If so, try again, using AppSocket/HP Jet Direct, with the string hp:/usb/deskjet_3600?serial=TH36P124ZX6B that you quoted below. Basically, identical to the HOWTO.

On a related note, hplip 0.9.5 was recently released. It should make it's way into Portage within a few days, and this may fix problems several users are having.

I posted this article on the Gentoo Wiki. Page is here. Had some formatting issues I had to work around, and a bit of re-writing to have it fit the style up there. In any case, thought I'd post it.

I'm fairly confident the AppSocket/HP Jet Direct method will solve your problem. Let me know if it doesn't.

As to 0.9.5, yeah, it's not in Portage yet. Seems to be taking a bit longer than usual to make it's way in...

I have an HP psc 2410 Photosmart printer connected via usb. I did the emerge with the usb USE flag and followed the HOWTO up to the probe part.

hp-probe -busb -ldebug fails to find the printer yet lsusb shows it is connected:

Any help would be great as I just switched from hpoj and now have no printing and no scanning.

UPDATE: You need to add the usblp module is a requirement for the USB printing to work. Once I compiled this and installed it (modprobe usblp), hp-probe then found my printer.

I haven't had time to do anything computer related for the past few months due to work. Indeed, I wiped my Gentoo install awhile back. I'm heading out for the Navy in March, so that will obviously cut my time even further. If I decide to get an x86 laptop, I'll put some form of Linux on it; perhaps Gentoo. I'm leaning towards an Apple (sacrilege, I know) because, quite honestly, I've gotten tired of tweaking. Linux is great, but once you no longer have the time to deal with it's quirks (especially with a distro such as Gentoo), it becomes a hassle.

In any case, this project will probably remain untouched from now on. I'll edit to include the module you mentioned, however. Thanks for the heads-up.

One problem that could come about with this guide is that it tells you to set the USE flags in the command line. So if later you remerge that program, it's going to have whatever flags are set in make.conf and /etc/portage/package.use

So if I run and update, the program gets updated but has those USE flags unset.

It's a better idea to set them in package.use

Like when I noticed that gaim was installed without spell-checking support (and I liked the feature), I did:
Code:
echo "net-im/gaim spell" >> /etc/portage/package.use


Now everytime I install gaim, it has spell-checking support.

But it's hardly a MAJOR issue; just worth noting.

I had a tough time getting this to work on my systems, so I thought I would update this
with how I did it. One system is running ~x86 the other ~amd64.
Both systems run UDEV-078, HPLIP-0.9.7, CUPS-1.1.23-r5

The first problem was getting hpssd and hpiod to run, I woud get errors about
no socket, connection refused, when running hp-probe -busb

Edit
/usr/share/hplip/hpssd.py
CHANGE: #!/usr/bin/env python
TO: #!/usr/bin/python
Restart hplip: /etc/init.d/hplip restart
EDIT: NOTE YOU WILL LOSE THIS WITH AN UPDATE TO HPLIP

After that when I went into cups to configure the printer, under Device:
I had 'hp no_devices present'
Instead of hp:/usb/photosmart.7550?serial=CN33T420CT7E (HP photosmart_7550)
Also when bringing up Toolbox I got the same error 'no hp devices present'

I re-emerged cups, restarted cups (/etc/init.d/cupsd restart) and everything worked.

I hope this will save someone a lot of time.

Excellent point. And quite frankly, I'm not sure why I didn't notice it before. I follow that procedure myself. IIRC, I was testing USE flags with it, trying to figure out what was necessary. As such, I hadn't committed anything to my make.conf yet, and I guess I forgot to change it for the guide. I'll add a note.

Oh, and as for my farewell message, such as it was, eh... I made the mistake of browsing the forums some more after I wrote that, and saw quite a few advancements since I left. Things that had annoyed me are now fixed. Sadly, it appears I'm stuck again. Tweaky soul can't resist:D

Hi all

Excellent - I found out about hplip through this article, and I think it will eliminate another blocker regarding "not switching completely to Linux".
I have a Deskjet with a duplex-thingy, and as far as I understand, the toolbox could manage this.

However - I cannot add the printer to CUPS as described; I don't see this "URL-like" hp:/usb/... entry in the list.

When doing /usr/share/hplip/probe -busb, this is the output:

Code:

thomas@linux /usr/share/hplip $ ./probe -busb

   ----------------------------------------  ---------------
   hp:/usb/DESKJET_970C?serial=ES9AJ131SPJQ  HP DESKJET_970C


But, as said, this entry does NOT show up in CUPS...
What could that be?

Another question: The printer is attached to a gentoo-server - the toolbox will be installed on a gentoo-client. Will this work?

Probably need to restart cupsd. If you installed hplip after cups was installed then the currently running cups daemon won't know about hplip.

Code:
/etc/init.d/cupsd restart

All you need to do is install hplip on the server. Then on the client when you install cups just edit /etc/cups/client.conf and uncomment the ServerName line and change the server to be the actual print server.

OK - after a full reboot (?), I can add the printer using the hp:/usb... thingy.

What I now want to do is use the hp-toolbox on the client for full control on the printer; the client-cups is connected (or how do you say?) to the server-cups and I can see the newly added printer also if I point my browser (on the client) to http://localhost:631.

However, the hp-toolbox utility is still complaining about no printer being available with the hp: cups backend...

How comes?

I got the same problem, and stil nothing, i can' run hp-tollbox and manage with it my hp printer, check the ink level, etc.

even what Stephenovich wrote:

As to 0.9.5, yeah, it's not in Portage yet. Seems to be taking a bit longer than usual to make it's way in...


didn't help, because when i try to add my printer with this method then i can't add my printer, because it doesn' see it's driver, i have even upgraded hplip to 0.9.7, and still nothing.

I got my HP PSC 2575 to print through cups w/o a hitch.
However, when I try to start hplip it fails at starting hpssd with out any error message. I tried the couple work arounds as stated before (modifying the the start-stop-daemon command) but I haven't been able to get it to launch.

Any help is appreciated.

I have tried to install the hplip software for a couple of months but never succesed.
I can print over the network using cups, and hpjis but i wanted to access the builtin cardreader on the printer.
So i Did try in an other way.

My setup in the webinterface on the "HP Photosmart 8450"

Host Name: HP8450
Active Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Active Preferred DNS Server: 192.168.0.1

Checking what nmap reports!

pingvinen ~ # nmap -sS -O -PI -PT 192.168.0.100

Starting nmap 3.83.DC13 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2006-01-01 16:44 Local time zone must be set--see zic manual page
Interesting ports on HP8450 (192.168.0.100):

Uptime 1.056 days (since Sat Dec 31 15:23:30 2005)

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 5.091 seconds

I guess the cardreader is on port 139, becuse the memorycard showup as a sharedmap if accessing the printer from Windows
Trying with nmblookup !

Are any of you guys using this driver having problems print image files?

HP Laserjet 1022. Seems to print text, pdf, webpages fine. But if open an image file like a png, jpg that is large, the printer will error out.
If I print anything like that it want to print out about 2-4 pages usually. Usually I get 1 page with nothing but a title, then errors out on the
2nd page. If I check the logs (which say nothing really, even with full debug2 on) it is trying to print and 3 and 4 pages usually, but hung up
on the 2nd page. Printer job hangs up, and have to delete the job in order to print anything else.

I use to be able to print large images with my Deskjet 722, also scan a document with xsane and printout the resulting image file.
With this laserjet 1022, I found that I have to scale images taken with camera, scanner,.. down in Gimp, then it will print.

This became more apparent when using xsane to scan a letter size document. I had to use the COPY function of Xsane to get anything I scanned
to print out. Then I had to setup copy to 600dpi (300dpi seemed to not work right with resulting output to printer), and then use the Zoom setting in
Xsane to .95. Then it scanned and sent image to the printer almost the same size. If I use a Zoom of 1.0, printer will printout 1 page, then hang on the
second with the printer errored out.

It looks like a border (margin) issue almost. I just sucks that with the Deskjet everything just seemed to work. With the LaserJet, images have to be
MANUALLY scaled to work or the printer errors and job hangs on page.

hp-setup does not work for me - the printer is not attached to the actual client, it's attached to a server (which has both hplip and cups installed).

When running hp-setup on the client, it says:

Code:
 [ERROR]: No devices found.
 [ERROR]: Error occured during interactive mode. Exiting.


Seems that via network, the toolbox is really not working... :(

Try hp-setup as root and this is complet howto from hp site:

Code:
Add the printer using HP-SETUP for Network Printers
Network Printer

Note: See your printer documentation for specific instructions on connecting the USB, Parallel or Network cable to your printer and computer.

   1. Open a console/terminal window.

   2. Follow these steps to log in as the super user;

         1. Enter this command:
            $ su

         2. Press Enter.
         3. Enter the root password.
            Note: The root password gives you administrative privileges on the system.
         4. Press Enter.

   3. Using the Printer Setup Menus on your printer, print the "Network Configuration" page.  This page will have the IP address of the printer, which is essential to complete the printer setup.

         1. Note: See your printer documentation for specific instructions on printing the network configuration page.

   4. Open a console/terminal window.
   5. su

   6. Enter this command add your Network printer:  (The -a option will setup your printer with a default name and settings, option -m configures a network printer.)
      # hp-setup -m <ip.address.of.printer.from.step.1>

      (for Ubuntu type: $ sudo hp-setup -m <ip.address.of.printer.from.step.1> )

      Note:  You may see a message stating "[WARNING]: Found multiple possible PPD files", If prompted, select the option that best fits your printer model.

   7. Your printer should print out a test page. If the test page prints successfully, your printer is configured correctly.

   8. If your printer supports faxing you will want to complete the fax configuration as prompted.

Printer setup is now complete.


Hope this will work for u :-)

Code:
 Creating URIs for '192.168.1.105':
 [ERROR]: Failed (error code=12). Please check address of device and try again.


I get this every time I try to set up this printer (again). I already had it set up a couple of months ago... it gives

Code:
"open device failed; will retry in 30 seconds..."
Device URI: hp:/net/Photosmart_2570_series?ip=192.168.1.105


now when I try to use that setup. I am able to go to the printer's ip address in a browser and use those tools without any problem, and my rommmates can print from windows over the network. The only thing that has changed is the version of the linux software, and my roommate installed the software on a windows computer. Any ideas? This is very annoying... also, before anyone asks, CUPS printing works normally with the cups-pdf software.

Rucok: I know this how-to you posted; however, it is apparently referring to the situation where the printer is connected to a local workstation via usb; my hp-printer is connected to some server (and correctly detected there), but I want to use the hp-toolbox on a client - the printer is visible also in my client's CUPS (which basically just mirrors the server's CUPS, or however I might describe that...), but the hp-toolbox complains because no printer is attached to the client (which is correct) - so it does not seem to be working via network, only when the printer is attached locally.
