Hiii to everybody....
i have been having a challenge at my hands how do i solve it ... the challenge is that i want to configure my hp656c printer for it to work on linux... My linux distriibution is RHL9.0.... i have the driver installed... the system detects the printer .. but no printing ... it says ... print error... can anyone suggest me how to solve the problem... is there anyconfiguration to be done .. i have not done any configuration.... i have formatted the system completely to be a dedicated linux user ... i want my printer to be up and working fine.... as soon as possible...
first download and install it. Then open a webrowser and go to localhost:631 It will ask you for a password, use your root password. Go to administrative tools (I think) and click add printer. Print a test page. Redhat has a print manager default picker thing, change it to cups.
To start, stop and restart services (including CUPS), you can use RedHat's Service configuration GUI.
In the Menu -> System Settings -> Server Settings -> Services
Or open a Terminal window and type: redhat-config-services
You should see CUPS on the list and make sure the checkbox is checked (this means that CUPS will automatically start when the system boots-up).
