I have Fedora 7 and my printer HP Laserjet P1007 is on windows server. I have downloaded and installed driver hplip-3.9.2 and tried to install the printer. Every thing looks fine, My Fedora found my printer

LOCATION localhost.localdomain
Make and Model HP LaserJet p1007 hpijs, hpijs 3.9.2

but when I try to print something it does not print on further investigation I found from that hpijs 3.9.2 does not support network

Distro-Fedora, Version-7, Installer-Yes, GUI-Yes(Qt3), Scan-Yes, Fax-No, Status-Yes, Photo Card-No, USB-Yes, Paraller-No, Network-No

Can anyone help me to rectify it?

From what I see here
Your printer is being shared on the network. If so, you dont need to install the drivers for the printer on your fedora computer. The drivers are needed if you connect the printer locally.

Now that said, try 'system-config-printer'>> New printer>> Windows printer via Samba share. provide the above device url there and configure the properties of the printer.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, but it does not work, Printer is not being selected/installed without selecting drivers.

P.S.: My printer is properly shared, I am able to use it from other windows clients.
