I'm new to this Linux thing, and have figured out a lot of stuff. I have the basic ideas behind RPM's makefiles and some basic shell programming.
The thing I CANNOT figure out is how on God's green earth to get my printer to work! I've read linuxprinting.org, but I wound up being more confused than I was helped. foomatic? CUPS? PPD's? I'm so lost! Can someone help me out?
Printer: HP PhotoSmart 2610 (USB)
OS: Fedora Core 3
Processor: AMD 64 3200+
I read from linuxprinting.org/pipermail/hp-list/2005q/006542.html that recommended driver is hpijs 2.1.1 for printing and HPLIP 0.9.1 for scanning. I googled hpijs 2.1.1 and the only thing I could find was something for Mandrake, and even when I get that, I have NO idea what to do.
Thanks so much for your help!
