Thumbs up HP printer and Sarge

I have been trying to get my HP Deskjet 932C running with Debian Sarge for over a month now, and tonight, for the first time, I am printing. I am posting this thread to help out anyone who might also be trying to get an HP printer working with their system and having trouble the way I was.

I searched all over the Web, searched forums, and even talked to a senior Unix administrator, and nothing seemed to work. Today, jumping from link to link, I found a tutorial on how to get HP printers working on most versions of Linux.

The web address is .In step 1, find the instructions for your distribution, in my case, debian, and then follow the rest of the steps. In step 2, line #6, I ran into problems. I typed in "make", and it failed most of the way through, stating that it could not find libjpeg references and stopped. So I typed apt-get install libjpeg-dev (good guess), and it installed those files. I then typed "make" again, and it completed successfully. I then continued on with the final steps, and got a test page. I setup the printer in Gimp, and it also printed beautifully as well. My next step is to set it up under Open Office.

I hope this helps.
