I can no longer print


I just installed the latest upgrades on Slackware 14.2, and can no longer print. I am using the standard version of Cups, version 2.14 and hpcups is 3.16.5. This is a network HP 8600. It cannot even accept printing commands at the command line using a standard "lp" command. The scheduler is running. I tried to send a test print using hp-tools. It did not print. Thank you for all help.

You may have to run:

Code:
# hp-setup
to reinstall the printer. Or, you can re-install through cups at http://localhost:631

This has happened to me some when cups and hplip are upgraded at once.

Thank you for a quick reply, but unfortunately I tried that initially before contacting the forum. I should have mentioned that when I was posting the question. The result was negative.

This is the third, at least, post regarding printing issues with the latest Slack 14.2 and HP printers.

I have an issue also, but I think it's that my HP printer is just too new for v. 14.2's HPLIP. But I sense undercurrents . . . .

The only other issue I've had was a corrupted pppd. That's the last straw I have to draw. Hope it helps.

The problem was just solved by Slackware! A new ghostware package was just released, and I can once more print again!
