Printer Software


I have a HP-PSC-2350 series printer and I have been using Simple Scan when printing single documents. However, if the document is more than one page I encounter problems as for whatever I try I cannot get the printer to print multiple pages.
Is there any other printer software that would be compatible with my printer that would print multiple pages?

thanks, gael.

Linux Mint 17,3 Cinnamon.

Are you having trouble printing or scanning multiple pages? If it is scanning, have you tried xsane?

Did you set up the printer using HPLIP?

Multiple pages are the problem. I have the printer set to print all pages, but of course it only prints the first page. I was hoping that there was another printer software program that others successfully use.
I've never used xsane ... so I wouldn't know if is better or not. I'll have a look at it and let you know.

The printer scans okay, the problem lies in the printing of a document that has more than one page.
Although the printer is setup to print "ALL" pages ... it doesn't.

Yes, I installed it using the default settings with the duplex option "OFF".
I honestly thought that the settings would be correct for all eventualities, that why I thought the Simple Scan program was to blame for not printing multiple pages.
