HP Officejet 5510 printer

I everybody,

I'm trying to install my HP Officejet 5510 printer on SUSE 9.1

I followed all the instruction provided in :


I have all hpoj , hpijs and cups well intalled.

All connection test are right.

PTAL is started on system booting.

I installed my printer with cups and I selected " PTAL mlc:usb:officejet_5500_series (hp officejet 5500 series) and OfficeJet 5500 driver.

But the printer does not print!

If I send a printing test I got no error it answered me that the test was completed but the printer did not print.

Can you please help me!

You may have better luck downloading the HPOJ driver via HP and following the documentation.

Its takes several steps but I don't have a problem with it.
Once you download, you have to run ptal-init setup

Then run ptal-init start
Then add it via CUPS.
