hp photosmart 2610 network printer
I just received a hp photosmart 2610 printer as a gift. I set it up as a network printer by attaching the network cable from the printer to my router. I ran hp's software on my windows machine and everything works fine. I have now been trying for a couple days to get it working under damn small linux, but have not had any success. I have tried apsfilter a little but have mainly been trying cups. I know the ip address of the printer and the hostname.
In cups I entered the hostname in the name field, the ip address in the location field and gave it a description. After selecting continue I selected 'Internet Protocol Printing (http) and pressed continue. For the Device URI I entered 'http://the_ip_address'. I then selected the make to be HP but on the next step I couldnt find the model number/driver of my printer so I just selected the photosmart P1100 hoping it would work, which it didnt.
I have been searching online for drivers and reading posts here and on other forums but I must say I am confused to what I should be putting in the wanted paramaters or what some of them mean, such as URI. So after trying to figure this out I would appreciate any help anyone could offer.
