Deskjet 3653 not Printing


I have set up my printer using KDE's printer management tool. When I go to test my printer, the printer starts to move but nothing gets printed. The jobs status continues to say it is printing although it's not.

Install the hplip package, and then configure your printer using cups.
http://localhost:631

Before doing this however, add yourself as a cups administrator using the "lppasswd" program.
lppasswd -a <your username>
<your password>

Then when a username/password dialog pops up during the cups printer install, enter your own username and password.

Thanks for the advice, but this didn't help. It's still the same problem. The printer starts up like it's going to print but it doesn't print anything.

Which printer did you select in the setup? According to linuxprinting.org, the 3650 printer doesn't even understand PCL3. I wonder if this is the printer equivalent of a win modem. There is a crude technique, of deleting the printer and starting over. Sometimes this will erase a hard to find mistake.

I solved this problem. It was a hardware issue at first but I also had to set the uri to usb:/dev/usblp0 in openSuse. When I switched to Kubuntu, the uri had to be different. I used the hp-makeuri command to make a uri based on a devnode. The command was "hp-makeuri /dev/usblp0" and the resulting uri to use was hp:/usb/deskjet_3600?device=/dev/usblp0.
