Hp Printer Issue HP7680


Hello,

I have been trying to setup my HP7680 as a network printer with a static ip. I am able to print using cups no issues there, when I load hp-toolbox from cli I get this..

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 1.6.7)
HP Device Manager ver. 6.2

error: Unsupported model: Officejet_Pro_L7600

I downloaded the 7600 series ppd file and added it to the system-config-printer. Does this mean I will not be able to use the hp-toolbox to scan or fax from? or is there a work around for this.

Thanks again,

Keith

Hello,

I wanted to update my thread, I installed a new version of HPLIP which my printer is supported in according to linuxprinting.org. When I load the hp-toolbox I get an error that my printer is unsupported.
