HP G85 not printing with Ubuntu 13.04


The HP G85 is installed but it has a communication error 5012.
I installed HPLIP-3.13.4 The printing is halted.
Is it something with libusb again..? i read about that before and that helped whenchangingto 12.10 but not now !

SOLVED same issue as before with Ubuntu 12.10, see here take latest 3.13.5 instead.. and then :

Hi,

I think, this issue may be due to libusb-0.1 and libusb-1.0 packages.
I mean latest HPLIP considers the libusb-1.0 package as default, whereas g85 is older printer and it doesn't work on libusb-1.0 and works on libusb-0.1.

In Ubuntu 12.10, libusb-0.1 is not supported. Please install manually libusb-0.1 package. and make following changes to work g85 printer:-

1) go to hplip-3.12.11 (i.e. Assuming hplip-3.12.11.run is download to ~/Downloads folder )
$ cd ~/Downloads/hplip-3.12.11

2) run configure command with libusb01 setting
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-libusb01_build

3) run make
$ make
$ sudo make install

4) try printing now.

Thanks & Regards,
Amarnath
