Adding HP Color LaserJet CM2320nf MFP to CUPS


Hello,

I'm trying to add an HP Color LaserJet CM2320nf MFP to a CUPS print server.

Cups Version: Common UNIX Printing System 1.3.7

I read somewhere that using foo2hp would work, so I simply selected
Code:
Printer Driver: HP Color LaserJet 1600 Foomatic/foo2hp (recommended)
but when I print to the device all I get is jibberish or blank pages.

What driver should I user or where can I get a ppd file? I've been looking for one for about an hour to no avail.

Notes:
Setup as AppSocket/HP JetDirect
Device URI socket://192.168.101.13:9100


Thanks for any help or advice you can offer!

-MJ

Most HP printers get picked up when you turn them on so you shouldn't have to install anything, look under system/preferences and set your printer as default.
You may want to install the HPLIP from Ubuntu Software center, a nice little set of tools to configure your printer

Smile cups config

when it comes to CUPS, your best friend is
http://localhost:631/ . put that into your web browser. provided you have access to the root password, you should be able to remove a bad printer config and add the proper configuration from there. It's all very intuitive.
also, i've had experience with USB printers, where if you plug them into one USB port, it will only be configured for _that_ port, so you may want to make sure you plug the printer into the same port every time. just a side note
