Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I installed hplip, then added that the rc.hplip start and rc.cups start to rc.M. I used that script you had posted above, and just added that to rc.M. Then I rebooted, saw that both rc.hplip and rc.cups were loaded successfully, added the printer, under devices there were two usb hp deskjets, one with hplip and another without, I tried the one with hplip, click print test page and got
I tried the other device and still no dice. I ls -l foomatic-rip and it's got 777 permissions.
The script I posted was an excerpt from rc.M it should already have been there, and you probably should not have added it if it already is there.
Aye, made a copy of the old rc.M so I just mv it back hehe.
Guys I FINALLY GOT IT WORK!!
I started installing the foomatic filters. When I configured it I saw
pdf.c:14:30: error: ghostscript/iapi.h: No such file or directory
pdf.c:15:33: error: ghostscript/ierrors.h: No such file or directory
So I installed the ghostscript-8.64-i486-1.tgz package. Then I reconfigured the foomatic filters, no errors, make, make install. Then I shutdown hplip and cups and restarted hplip and cups in that order. Opened the browser, added the printer, and clicked Print Test Page.
Lo and behold, I heard the printer perform. W00t. Thanks guys.
yeah, good to see it worked out, indeed it could have been a dependency issue with ghostscript, but it's weird because I had the same problem a while ago, the only thing that worked was to (re)install the foomatic filters.
I have the same problem here under Solaris 10 where Ghostscript is
installed as a 'package'. I think I have to do the installation from
Ghostscript's source in order to get the 'iapi.h' header.
But how do I have to include this header into the 'foomatic-filters'
