[solved] cups


I am a basic Linux user and have installed CUPS for the first time.. everything seemed to be going well until I actually tried to print... setup went smooth, adding the printer went smooth, and the printer showing up in he text editor even showed up.. when setting up the printer however, it didn't have my exact model (HP DeskJet 1010), so I tried the closest model which I believe was 1100. I also tried with the generic deskjet driver.

CUPS says the print job was completed successfully but nothing printed...

Any ideas? Thanks!

Is HPLIP installed?

Did you add the printer using the HP Device Manager?

I did not. Thanks.

Anyways, I downloaded the install wizard script and ran it...it kept asking me for a root/superuser password..I'm using Rasbian and the default admin password is disabled..so I tried the password for the current user (pi) and I tried leaving it blank and it failed both times....Now the script wont run again.

I have very little experience with Rasbian.

I hate paper jams!

Glad to hear it's working.

You might install foomatic-db which might have the ppd for your printer. You can use apt-file to find it. Seems to be package hpijs-ppds for debian (and probably raspbian).

$ sudo apt-get install foomatic-db hpijs-ppds hplip

Once the ppd is there you should be able to select your actual printer in cups. Not that it differs much if at all relative to the close cousin.

$ apt-file find 1010 | grep -i hp | grep -i ppd

hpijs-ppds: /usr/share/ppd/hplip/HP/hp-deskjet_1010_series-hpijs.ppd
hpijs-ppds: /usr/share/ppd/hplip/HP/hp-laserjet_1010-hpijs.ppd
