HP 845C Installation


Okay, I've been through about every forum and looked at about 1 million help pages and have gotten nothing. Could anyone please walk me through an installation of an HP 845C printer? I'm using RH 9. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA!

In a webbrowser, type: http://localhost:631 , that will let you configure CUPS. It is pretty easy, just pick your printer and try out a test page.

I have the same series printer: HP Deskjet 842C

First of all, great choice on the printer series. Next, if you dont have a usb cable, get one.....it installs itself.
