I have been using the latest Puppy and think it is the best Live CD I have tried. However, I cannot get it to recognize my HP Deskjet 710c printer. Any help would be appreciated.

When you run the CUPS web interface, it pops up an info box, and in it you will see info about a 'hpijs' PET package with more HP drivers.

Actually, that info box is a deep purple background and the text is not very readable -- I've just fixed that.

I've done that and the 710c Foomatic driver now appears on the list, BUT, when I ask to print a test page, nothing happens. Is there some thing else I need to know? I also tried to print directly from a document, with the same result.

jamsh, it's not that no one is interested, it's that no one who can help you has read this thread. Be patient.

Meanwhile, what else can you tell us about what you have tried? Does the printer work in any Linux distribution? Have you searched the forum for other posts on deskjet or 710c? (The forum search won't work for less than 4 characters.)

Hi,

Here is another post for installing a HP 720C. Some of the references are for a 710C. Hope this helps:

If CUPS is not working for you, which is a problem I had too with my Lexmark z52, then left me suggest trying the PDQ wizard. I hope that may help.

PostPosted: Sun 28 Oct 2007, 10:31    Post subject: Installing HP710c and others 712,720c,722 ,820cse, etc  

The following WILL work to run an HP710c printer, and MAY work to run
other HP models such as hp 712c,720c,722c,820Cse,820Cxi,1000Cse,1000Cxi, to print postscript level 2.

I`ve found the only way to get my HP710C printer to work in puppy
is to install the devx300.sfs file and then do a make, make install on a
pnm2ppa-tar.gz file which is DIFFERENT from the pnm2ppa.ppd file.

I run puppylinux ver 301beta on a Full Hard Drive install.
I therfore download devx301.sfs, you may need devx300.sfs and install with the instructions that DesertPuppy gave a few weeks ago on the forum. SEE BELOW.
If you have a frugal install I think you need to copy the devx file
to /mount/home or the root to get it to automatical install on bootup--I`m not sure on this.

Installing devx301.sfs or devx300.sfs on Full Hard Drive.

A: Download devx300.sfs from:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/sfs_modules-3

B: Download it to the topmost directory /, not /root

C: Use ROX and find /etc/rc.d/rc.modules. Right click and open as text. Add these lines to the bottom of the script:- modprobe squashfs.
So it looks like:-

#v2.13
#dougal suggested this:
[ ! -d /proc/acpi ] && modprobe apm

#Needed to be able to mount squashfs on Full Hard Drive Install
modprobe squashfs
#End of Update

###END###

D: SAVE the file and REBOOT.

E: Make a new directory in / and call it data. So you now have devx300.sfs and a directory called data in /.

F: Use ROX to go to /, the right click - window - terminal here.
A rxvt terminal should appear.
Type:-
mount -o loop devx_300.sfs /data
Then Type:-

cp -a -v --remove-destination /data/* / >devcopy.txt

note:
there is a space between remove--destination and /data
there is a space between /data/* and the next /
there is a space between / and >devcopy.txt

G: Wait for a number of seconds. When you see the # sign your ok.

H: Type:-
umount /data
Then Type:-
sync
Then Type:-
ldconfig

I: To test if it works
Type:-
gcc
You should see gcc: no input files

J: If you get this your ok to compile pnm2ppa-tar.gz

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

1:

Download pnm2ppa-1.12.tar.gz from:-

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1322

This is pnm2ppa-1.12.tar.gz version 1.12 at 187KB

2: Use ROX to go to the directory that pnm2ppa-1.12.tar.gz is in, right click- window- terminal here to bring up rxvt.
Type:-
tar -zxvf pnm2ppa-1.12.tar.gz
Change into the folder produced
Type:-
make
then
make install

3: Use ROX to go to /etc/pnm2ppa.conf
Right click open as text.
place a # in front of version number 0
remove the # from in front of version 720 and rename it 710.

4: Save the file.
Download HP-Deskjet_710C-pnm2ppa.ppd from:-

www.linuxprinting.org/show_driver.cgi?driver=pnm2ppa

This is HP-Deskjet_710C-pnm2ppa.ppd at 38KB

5: Copy HP-Deskjet_710C-pnm2ppa.ppd to:-
/usr/share/cups/model/HP-Deskjet_710C-pnm2ppa.ppd

6: This works ok on pupver 301 hope it works for you.You should be able to run CUPS, choose your printer and print out a test page without downloading the following.
You may need passwords in CUPS
user = root
password = woofwoof

There may be problems in puppy ver 300 about links to foomatics scripts.
Type:-
ln -s /usr/local/bin/foomatic-rip /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip
Downloadable from:-

http://linuxprinting.org/download.cgi?filename=foomatic-rip&show=0
http://linuxprinting.org/download.cgi?filename=foomatic-gswrapper&show=0
Both go to /usr/local/bin
Type chmod 775 for both files.

Hi folks

I have a simple question:

With the information above I have been able to install my HP710C and to print the test page.
The HP710C now is detected within the printer list of Seamonkey but it is not displayed within the printer list of programs like abiword or gnumeric.

What do I have to do to add my HP to the printer lists of these programs.

My proposal for Barry:
The printer wizard should do that automatically.

Thanks for anyone spending time to answer this question

Wosh
