Success with the psc 1200 series!!
Worked on my psc1210.
Found an update to sane through yast (using packman as an installation source).
Downloaded then did a './configure', 'make', then 'make install' to the the hpos and hpijs src files.
From a konsole I typed the following
1 ) ptal-init setup (the prompts were very easy)
2 ) ptal-init start (simple enough)
3 ) scanimage -d hpoj:mlc:usbsc_1200_series --test
(this test was smooth)...
Then I opened Kooka from KMenu>Graphics>Scanning and the rest was history.....
You know what I just realized, when Installed the printer on my Grandfathers Xandros computer, I had to use the Debian Sources to get that printer working (quite a few months ago).
Anyways... once you remove those previous packages, try commenting out your 'sources.list' repositories and then add the debian repositories to that file. After you've done that... do an 'apt-get update' and then an 'apt-get install (hp packages)' or just go to Synaptic and find those packages and then install it.
If you need a more detailed answer, please say so and i'll give you the step-by-step instructions and see if you can get your printer and scanner going.
Thanks very much for the reply. I had more or less given up hope of anyone seeing the post.
The printer originally worked on Ubuntu 5.10 "out of the box" using a default driver. After I got the scanner working, the printer wouldn't.
Now, things are working...sort of. The situation is like this:
I had installed
when I made the previous post. I was unable to find libsane-hpoj-0.91-9.
After a long search, I found: libsane-hpoj-0.91-9.i386.rpm and hpoj-0.91-9.i386.rpm.
I used apt-get alien to convert the lipsane file to a deb and installed it.
I haven't done that yet with the hpoj because I don't know what will happen with the previously installed 0.91-6 (I'm very much a Linux newbie, but catching on pretty fast). Will apt-get replace it automatically or do I need to do something ?
I also have hpijs-1.6-2.i386.rpm, but don't know whether I should replace the hpijs-2.1.5 +0.9.5-2ubuntu2, which sounds like it's newer.
Anyway, the scanner works (Xsane) but, after I scan something the printer doesn't work. Print Manager indicates it is printing (not paused or stopped), but nothing happens.
After trying various things, I discovered that I need to turn the printer off (physically...with the button). I then turn it back on and it prints.
So, essentially, I have all functions of the all-in-one printer...just in a slightly roundabout, mild pain-in-the-neck sort of way.
So the question is whether I should count myself lucky and forget about further playing around with the system for fear of mucking something up...or whether I can expect to get full, "normal" function.
I would remove those packages. And get it working correctly. Theirs no corrupt Window registry to deal with here... The best thing about Linux is that it is very straight forward. If you remove it then decide to reinstall it the same way it will definetely work just like you did the first time...
Anyways... 'apt-get remove (thePackages)'
(you could also use 'dpkg -r (thePackages)' - if you installed the rpm->alien->deb)
Change to the debian sources, 'apt-get install (thePackages)'
Then follow my setup instructions in the original post... and everything should work correctly.
(remember to change back to the Ubuntu sources afterwords)
It should work.. if not, you can always go back to the way you were using it before...which would be annoying...
Let me know if you need anymore details. I would like to test it out with UBUNTU soon, but i won't try it for the next couple of days because I got a lot on my plate right now...And i'll give you step-by-step instructions to let you know how I got mine working.
Anyways, good luck and post back here just to let me know if you've had any success with it... just interested.
5) follow the steps. You're device name should be something like: mlc:usbsc_1310_series_
after this is done... try run your printer utility...for kde i believe its 'kprinter' -- if its not yet in the list of installed printer, there should be an add printer around there...for gnome..don't remember but there should be one around somewhere as far as I remember.
For the Scanner.
1) on a console/konsole/terminal type "scanimage -d hpoj:mlc:usbsc_1310_series_ --test"
2) you should find that your scanner is now moving and doing some tests.
3) Now to run the scanning program 'Kooka' type:
kooka -d hpoj:mlc:usbsc_1310_series_
4) It should now be working!
let me know how this went...
I'm gonna try setup ubuntu this weekend...
