HP Laserjet M1005 Printer does not print in Fedora 29, even it is detected.


Dear Friends,
My printer "HP Laserjet M1005" is detected in Fedora 29 in my Laptop. Its status is showing as " ready to print". But, if I issue a print command, the printer never print or it gives an error message.

It's a HP, so use hplip.

Even if it's wifi (which you don't say), connect via usb, open a terminal and type
Code:
sudo hp-setup
Follow the prompts.

I tried, also have to install hplip-gui. After I tried with $hp-setup, result is

"[root@localhost suren]# hp-setup -b usb

You'll have to learn as you go in linux. Otherwise, everything you try to do will end in tears. There's a whole operating system out there.

You need to be in X. There's terminals in X. Some programs need X because they feed back to the X display. These are called vts = Virtual terminals. The ttys outside of X date from the 80x25 consoles connected via serial port and have very little graphical ability. Most people chsnge the runlevel so X starts automatically.
