Does anyone out there know how install the HP OfficeJet 5510 windoze drivers on XP so that I can print from XP to my SuSE Linux box?
I have the same problem on my recently installed SuSE 10.2 however I cheated
, on the XP machine I used an Apple color printer driver. I read somewhere, as someone mentioned here, that Linux can handle postcript printing. I was able to print but itakes a bit long and not completely accurate.
The problem with installing the OfficeJet 5510 drivers on winXP is that you can't install them when the window pops up asking for the location of the drivers. In the menu that appears I click on "HP" but then "officeJet 5510" does not appear in the list of models for HP printers.
If you click on "Have Disk" and go to the CD-ROM drive you're unable to install the drivers because winXP is unable to find them, you're supposed to run an executable in the CD instead.
Is there someone out there that knows how to install the OfficeJet 5510 drivers on the XP machine so that I may print from WinXP to my Linux box???
Nowadays I'm trying to switch to Linux and even though I'm still a novice I set up an anonymous share on my Linux box all by me self.
