Question Sigh... anybody get the HP 26000N working on Suse 10


I followed the directions below and tried to configure via Direct TCP, LPD and CUPS. When I run yast the printer model now exists as an option but when I click test, nothing happens. The printer is connected via ethernet through a switch and I can ping it.

Follow the steps below to download and install the driver:

Open a terminal window, login as root and do the following:
1. Type "wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz"
2. Type "tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz" to unpack the tar file
3. Type "cd foo2zjs"
4. Type "make" to compile
5. Type the following at the prompt that corresponds to your printer to get the extra files from the web for color correction and firmware: ./getweb 2600n # Get HP LaserJet 2600n .ICM files


6. Type "make install" to install the driver


Any help would be appreciated, Even if you don't have the same model, how did you configure your network printer?

TIA

The foo* drivers should work fine in SUSE, but the correct driver for the HP 26000N is foo2hp. Here is the home site of the person who writes all these drivers. You will find instructions there also.
http://foo2hp.rkkda.com/

Although the following thread focuses on foo2zjs in Fedora, the instructions may be a little clearer, to give you a better idea regarding how the process works.
