Printer for AMD64


I didn't have any luck printing with my HP 710C printer with Ubuntu x86_64 (hoary and Breezy).

Can you suggest a printer that worked for you with x86_64?
Anyone tried HP PSC 1315?

Printer support should be completely independent of architecture type, particularly with respect to x86 vs x86_64.

Unfortunately, I tried with Kanotix64 and my printer refuse to work again.
With x86 works just fine, with x86_64 doesn't .

Anyone have any idea?

Really odd. What happens under x86_64? I assume this is a USB connection? Is it seen by the system at all? Does any diagnostic information show up in dmesg?

HP-PSC2175 is the one I use with my AMD64 system

I use HP-PSC2175 printer/scanner/copier [USB printer/scanner/copier] with my AMD Athlon 64 3400 system. I also have used a HP Deskjet 5550 with my system and it worked fine but then I got a more expensive printer that does scanning & copying too. The only one of Fedora Core distros I like is the FC2-i386. It is the only Fedora Core distro that is reasonably problem-free and reasonably stable. I have tried the 64-bit version of FC2 but Nautilus crashes on me as soon as it gets to the log-in screen and then I have to use KDE and still other serious problems too. It is a mystery to me why FC2-i386 is so stable & problem-free compared to FC2-x86_64 and the other 64-bit Fedora Core distros. I purely hate that trash FC3 in any version and FC4-all versions-is MUCH better but still too buggy and defective for me to recommend and they took out Apt and Synaptic and I REALLY like Apt and Synaptic and I purely hate yumex-big memory leak/memory hog. Their removing Apt & Synaptic is the major reason why I abandoned FC [except FC2-i386] forever and went to a Debian or Debian-based distro as they have Apt & Synaptic and plan to continue having Apt & Synaptic. When they decide to abandon Apt & Synaptic I will abandon them. Also DON'T even mention Mandrake. It was the worst. Would not let me dual-boot with other distros and other serious problems. It was a nightmare; worse than FC3. Debian Sarge AMD64 is great once you get it setup right. However, it does not have the 64-bit version of OpenOffice.org available or even have the 32-bit version of OpenOffice.org to install with some little trick or other as Ubuntu does to install the 32-bit version on its AMD64 system. Also it would not let me configure the network/internet settings to where an ordinary user can activate it instead of root only and then have to enter the root password to use it. However I liked Debian tho. Fedora Core will let you configure the network device control to allow all users to activate it or deactivate it. So I went over to Ubuntu 5.10. So far so good. It has OpenOffice.org [32-bit version] installed with a little trick I learned about from googling for it. So there until they release a 64-bit version of OpenOffice.org. Also my printer works real good too with the 64-bit distros as I carefully chose my printer for its Linux compatibility by checking the printer compatibility database at www.Linuxprinting.org. So there you are. The HP-PSC2175 took a little configuring to set up the scanner part of it but once you get the hang of it, then it is easy.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Jean Brown Harrell

My printer is HP Deskjet 710C parallel connection. The system find the printer with his name, port, but when i try to print the printer is getting paused.
With LiveCDs the system think that the printing was successful and printer is ready again.

dmesg doesn't show anything useful.
The properties of the printer shows :
"Paused: Unable to open parallel port device file "/dev/lp0": Permission denied" .
I thought maybe was the printers or the parallel ports fault but with x86 liveCD printing works.

In www.ubuntuforums.org there is also some threads fo printers that don't work :

More issues with HP DeskJet 720c
CUPS won't (always) print...
HP Deskjet 722C Does Not Work
HP Deskjet 690c wont print!!!!

My printer is a USB printer-I have not tried the parallel port

Mine is a USB printer. I have not tried to use the parallel port as my HP PSC2175 only has a USB connector. The HP Deskjet 5550 has both a parallel port connector and a USB connector. I have actually had the Deskjet 5550 hooked up at the same time to Windoze XP SP1 on the parallel port and FC2-i386 on the USB port and they both worked. I would print something out on the usb port from FC2-i386 and then go over to Windoze XP SP1 and print something out on the parallel port. The Deskjet 5550 is a very good printer that will work good with Linux but I wanted a printer that would scan and copy and I researched what printer/scanner/copier to buy on both www.Linuxprinting.org and I also looked in Red Hat Linux 9's printer list; you know the list of printers when you go to configure the printers. I also looked in FC2-i386's list of printers and when I went to every electronics place here in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I checked the list of available printers against what they had and I picked one that was listed in www.Linuxprinting.org's list of printers under the category of "Works perfectly". When I bought it and took it home it set up perfectly for printing so easily. Setting up the scanner was a lot harder. It took me a day to google for the info and to check www.Linuxprinting.org's notes on how to setup the printer and it was soon working. I was ready to take it back to the store and exchange it for another printer/scanner/copier before this. I even posted notes on www.Linuxprinting.org's listing for this printer/scanner/copier to explain how to setup this machine so people would easily be able to get it working with no problems. Now with Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog I had to set it up the way I set it up with FC2-i386. However, with Breezy Badger, it works as soon as I installed Ubuntu Breezy Badger but when I went to reboot, Ubuntu 5.10 [Breezy Badger] either could not find the hard drive or some other problem and it just hung up in the middle of booting. This is some kind of bug. Ubuntu 5.04 [Hoary Hedgehog] did not have such a problem. I wonder why. So I had to reinstall FC4-x86_64 on my AMD Athlon64 3400 as much as I dislike it if I wanted to have a decent 64-bit operating system. Debian AMD64 did not have the 64-bit version of OpenOffice.org included and I did not feel like having to do a lot of tinkering to install the 32-bit version of OpenOffice.org with a little trick as the 64-bit versions of Linux have to do in order to use a 32-bit version of OpenOffice.org on a 64-bit operating system. Anyway, if they ever get Ubuntu 5.10 straightened out I will try it again and if it is OK I will reinstall it then.

Check out www.Linuxprinting.org's database on printers. It is real good on printer details on what printer to buy, how good it works with Linux and how to set it up and any other necessary info on this and other printers. If you need any more info let me know.

Sincerely,

Jean Brown Harrell
