You don't have the C compiler installed. (That's what "cc" is.) You need to go back to your distro installer, and install it (usually it's called "development tools" package or something like that).

If you tell us what distro you have, you're more likely to get help.

Hi LinLove,
Which distro are you using to install it, and have you looked to see if there is a distro package for it? Those are generally easier to use.

With regards to HP printers, they are generally fairly well supported as HP creates drivers for use with linux, which can be used with FooMatic and CUPS. I am using a HP Multi-Function device, and have scanning and printing working with no hassle. It is all done on SuSe using Distro packages and nothing else.

Cheers,
Danny

If you install a package called cups and another called hpijs from your FC install discs or using yum, your printer should work fine without installing any third party packages.

I am not sure why I assumed you are using Fedora Core. I can help out if you provide more details about the Linux distribution that you are using.

You need to tell us what kind of Linux you have.

LinLove,

You can actually set up your LQ profile to show which distribution(s) you are using, which helps others at least know which you are in. It saves time faffing around with asking that same question later.

Anyway, you should, as suggested, be able to find the hpijs package in yum, as you should also be able to find gcc - although at this point you might not actually require it. If you find a helpful package on the internet, always take a quick look in your distributions package management system to see if there is a version there. Sure, it may not be the latest and greatest bleeding edge version on the net, but it is likely to be stable and easier to install. Certainly - for a new user, it is sound advice to try finding things in your package manager first.

Danny

Try installing the hplip package if hpijs does not have the drivers your need.

Redazz,

Printers, like many things, tend to be designed in Series or families. My general experience is that sometimes HP printers are supported in families - and choosing a number very similar to yours will generally work. For example, I have a HP 1317 Multi-Function device, and the 1310 Drivers seem to work fine, I can scan and print with them at highest resolution.

Have a look to see if there is anything close that is in the same series as your printer.

Danny
