Subject description: I need print driver for an HP Photosmart 2600 series
 

Hello everyone.
I'm new to Puppy Linux and am trying to get it all set up. I have not figured out how to install a driver for my HP Photosmart 2600 printer. I have not been able to fine the driver listed for Puppy. Any suggestions
Paul

see Here and follow directions. I can't remember but you'll have to save the *.ppd file to /root (?) and then download and install cups. There is a cups .pup somewhere, just search for it in this forum.

exactly like trapster said, download:

http://www.linuxprinting.org/ppd-o-matic.cgi?driver=hpijs&printer=HP-PhotoSmart_2600&show=0

to /root, then download & install(18Mbytes):

http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Printing/cups-install-v0.3.pup

then just follow the directions in the pop-up to add your printer to the cups server.
