HP LaserJet 1505P configs, is "ready", will not print


Fedora-16 Linux, new install, printer-config appears fine, printer does not print.
First printer-install was via auto-install utility
Second install was with printer OFF and by use of HP model look-up.

Both result in what appears to be a "printer ready" clean install.
But printer will not print.

I reinstalled Fedora-16 ...and the printer...using both methods named above. Same result.

I would try adding the printer directly from the cups server using "localhost:631" in your web browser. It's straight forward. I don't care for a lot of those auto config printer programs in some distros. If something goes wrong, there's no easy way to check settings.

hp laserjet 1505P -- no print

I used http://localhost:631 to install the printer.
Each time, prior to install, I deleted out the old config.

No good result
No print

I think you need to download a plug-in. More info on it here:

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...jet_p1505.html

I think Fedora comes with hplip, so hp-setup should be available. If not, check the package manager and install hplip.

hplipopensource.com ........

I have already been there (hplipopensource.com).
Downloaded the plug-in.
Printer looks good...says it's ready... Will not print.

I'm running out of doors to go through, new hypotheses to explore.
I'm beginning to fear that this is a single printer-model "glitch" lieing unapproachably deep in proprietary code.

However if any of you has an additonal theory that I can "ring out"..??...
I will be delighted to read carefully, and do exactly that.

There is "background" to this printer: The HP laserjet 1505P has performed with Win-XP but Win-XP did not install it. HP Manual that came with the printer was VERY explicit that users absolutely must not allow Win-XP to e v e n t r y to config. the printer. Accordingly, the procedure was to disconnect the printer entirely and use a supplied "driver" disk to perform config. Then and only then....turn on the printer. My theory has always been that HP does not want to pay Microsoft a plug-and-play royalty. Therefore (at least in the case of the LaserJet 1505P) they supply proprietary drivers and the unusual config. method that I have just described. Furthermore, even under the Win XP-Professional OS, the printer has been "twitchy" in that if there's a print-job problem..??..the print software will "hang" and thereafter function can only be restored via a complete OS reboot.

Query to you-all: This condition exists under Fedora-16.
It would only cost me $6 or so, to try Ubantu.
Would you estimate, that Ubando would cause the printer to function?

Final Alternate line-of-attack: Just buy another printer.

FYI....I am just-now leaving Microsoft for Linux.
I'm not a "hater" personality......
In fact I've always admired Bill Gates and his company.

I just became aware, however, that Microsoft has written Windows-7 to NOT RECOGNIZE a Win-XP backup.
Windows-7 will recognize backup files of its immediately predecessor Windows-Vista.
This policy is Microsoft's way of forcing tight user-compliance to successive OS upgrades.
BACKUPS however are a computer-users life-line.
For Win-7 not to recognize an Win-XP *.bkf file is "commercial motive brought to the point of malice."
So.....I'm leaving Microsoft.

I was a DOS COMMANDLINE jockey.
I like GUI.....but I like Command Line control very much.
So here I am, jousting with FEDORA-16 and this obstinate printer of mine.

Please help if you can.
I am still pleased (and quite determined) to join your ranks

Judd Smith

PS...YES..!!!...I DID CHECK...!!!...the "Install CD" supplied with the printer to see if it included an Install/Setup specifically for Linux. No, it does not.

Have you tried printing as root? It may be some kind of permissions issue. Are you connecting through usb, or through ethernet? In the cups configuration, there is a setting where you can select which users are allowed to print.

hi

run
Code:
hp-setup
when your on printer driver selection look for the
hp-laserjet_p1505-hpijs.pdd or hp-laserjet_p1505-hpijs.pdd.gz

then test print

maybe this one can help.

DavidMcCann ....... I did as you suggested and obtaind no good result. printer will not print.
Interesting: I first used the GUI as follows: SustemTools>SystemSettings> (..but did not find any icon or path leading to SELinux administration)
So I thought: If I log in as "root" first....THEN.....SystemSettings will show me a wider variety of tools. FALSE.

Therefore I went to the commandline and entered: # /etc/selinux/config WHICH RETURNED..!! bash: /etc/selinux/config: Permission Denied
Wow....I didn't know permission could be denied to a "root" user....
Nor could I guess why it would be.

So then I entered: #cat /etc/selinux/config----which did return the information that SELinux was ENABLED.
Then I entered: #SELINUX=permissive

REBOOTED--Went out to the printer and as I said--the printer did not print.
Then I returned to the Terminal and restored.. #SELINUX=enforcing.

So can you tell me why the Eudora-16 GUI System Tools does not offer SELinux Admistration?
It's not critical to me---I'm comfortable with the CommandLine and have ref. books that assist me.
But I'm curious.

Second, can you tell me why # /etc/selinux/config .........returned PERMISSION DENIED.

TAILINLINUX......want to thank you, my printer prints.
Some notes, for your information:
# hp-setup returned: ERROR..install the hplip-gui package and ERROR: hplip requires GUI support (try running with --qt3) Also try using interactive ( -i ) mode.

So then I issued the command:
# yum install hplip-gui

Following installation my desktop had the HP-GUI manager.
I invoked it..and it provided a utility for installing the required plug-in.
The plug-in did the trick.

Want to thank you very much.
Want you to know of your success.
