Question hplip 0.9.3 problems on Slackware 10.1


I've been trying to install hplip 0.9.3 on a slack 10.1 for a few days without success; I've followed the hp sourceforge tutorial (hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/install.php), and the instructions in this post:
thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.hpofficejet.devel/2117
I installed PyQT and net-snmp.
The application Files are being placed in /usr/local/share/hplip instead /usr/hplip or /usr/share/hplip.
I made a softlink from /usr.hplip/hplip.sh to /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip and I modified the rc.M to start driver in system boot.
But when I send a restart to hplip.sh Fails starting services:

root@Server:/usr/local/share/hplip# ./hplip.sh restart
Stopping hpiod: [ OK ]
Stopping hpssd: [ OK ]
Starting hpiod: [FAILED]
Starting hpssd: [FAILED]

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, Help!!

Best Regards,

Andr�s Pruscino

1. Which HP printer do you have?.
2. HPIJS is already packaged and is probably installed in Slackware.
3. HPOJ is for multifunction devices only.

It looks like you are actually running FC, and it should have the HPIJS drivers packaged too.

I've never had any problems with hplip. All I've ever done is:
Install net-snmp
Install hplip (I've built a slackpack of 0.9.4, if you want it let me know how I can get it to you)
rc.cups stop
I've copied /etc/init.s/hplip to /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip, you could also just symlink it 'ln -s /etc/init.d/hplip /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip' (without the '') either way would work
rc.hplip start
rc.cups start

Next I open the CUPS Web Admin, http://localhost:631, and add my printer.

To make sure that it runs at boot I just add the following to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

# Start the HPLIP Printer/Scanner service
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip ]; then
echo "Starting HPLIP Printer/Scanner Daemon"
/etc/rc.d/rc.hplip start
fi

Open the HP Device Manager and it works.

Do this, open a terminal and run:

/usr/share/hplip/toolbox

Post any error messages.

Later,
MMYoung

HPLIP is going to evenually replace HPIJS and HPOJ. HPLIP already includes the latest HPIJS and from what I understand from the HPLIP devs, they will all eventually be mereged into one project. But maybe not, you know how those thing go.

FC? Do you mean Fedora?
Code:
checking for ld used by gcc... /usr/i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld
checking if the linker (/usr/i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld) is GNU ld... yes
Don't think so .

Yeah, that's because they use a init.d type script. Like most everything, hplip is built with RedHat/Fedora/RPM type distros in mind. Have to "monkey" around with stuff to make it more "slack like".

Anyway, I figured it was something like that, just poking a little fun. No harm meant.

I've followed this thread because because I can't get the scanner going on my hppsc1110. I've tried hpijs with hpoj, and also hplip (preferable). I've installed the slackware package from linuxpackages. I get this error:

simon@box:~$ /usr/share/hplip/toolbox
toolbox

simon@box:~$

I tried doing as per the post above. Whenever I try to start hplip I get this.

simon@box:~$ /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip restart

If I'm signed in first:

Stopping hpssd: /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip: line 48: kill: (2397) - No such process

I just want to get the scanner up if possible. Printing is fine.

Do you have your printer hooked up via a parallel cable or USB? Reason I asked is your printer isn't supported by parallel, only USB.

Also you might want to try stopping cups - /etc/rc.d/rc.cups stop - then restart hplip - /etc/rc.d/rc.hplip restart. If that works then start cups again.

HTH,

It's USB. I tried stopping cups first. Same error. I suppose I could try uninstalling the hplip that I've got and compiling it. Also I didn't install net-snmp. I wasn't sure what that did.

Before you do anything else, stop hplip and install net-snmp. That is REQUIRED for hplip to run. After you install the net-snmp, restart hplip.

OK. Thanks for that. HPLIP will start and stop without errors now. However xsane can't see any scanners and trying to launch the hp toolbox says there are no hp devices installed. I've just reinstalled the printer via localhost, and printing is fine.

Did you configure the scanning device?

I can't remember exactly how but you need to go through the CLI and use hplip to set up a scanning device before SANE will see it.

I never had to do any manual configure for sane to see my PSC 1610. All I did was start xsane from the console and it found it.

Have you re-set up your printer in CUPS using http://localhost:631, making sure that the uri is correct?

As I recall using my PSC 750 I need to set up the printer through CUPS.

But for the scanner

% hplip --setup (from memory, may not be right, hplip --help will tell you what you need to do)

It should then scan the system for any connected devices.

The hplip help files talk about configuring the scanner with the right uri. What is the uri? When I installed my printer using localhost:631 I simply gave it a name etc, the printer was there in the list, I wasn't asked for a uri. Is that an ip address? How do I find that out?
