Smile How to install a USB printer on a LTSP client?


Hello,

I am using Ubuntu Studio as LTSP server and i have confiured a network printer which works fine for all the users.
But, there's new HP officejet 4355 All-in one printer which has only a USB port. I have installed the recommended hplip-2.8.6.run binaries, but i am not able to setup the local printer. Coz, when i plug in the printer to the local LTSP client USB port, the OS doesn't detect any device. I guess the USB ports can detect only drives for data storage.

I have enabled the local devices option in the LTSP config file and USB drives work without any problems.

How do i make this work??

so sorry for waking up such an old thread but..I am having exactly the same issue. but I have 11.04 Ubuntu and the latest hplip-3.x.
USB flash drives working fine but the printer's not. Can you tell me did you finally resolve this issue?


THis topic is in the first search results by the relevant keywords so I know it's really bad idea to continue this thread.
