I have a Deskjet 5550 printer connected to my linux box with usb. Currently, I have difficulties in installing the HPLIP 0.8.7 driver (http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net
). The last step of the installation:
# /etc/init.d/hplip restart
Stopping hpiod [OK]
Stopping hpssd [OK]
Starting hpiod [OK]
Starting hpssd [FAILED]
I am using Debian sarge with kernel 2.6.8 for k7. I tried both compiling from source code (with dpkg and manual) and apt-get install package from Debian Unstable (no dependencies error is reported with apt-get). Both return the same error.
cupsd is running but I cannot access http://localhost:631/
(to install the printer according to HP instruction). I don't know whether this is because my hpssd failed to load or because of cupsd problem.
Thus, currently I can't print anything. This is the first time I'm installing a printer in my system, so any help will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks...
