PostPosted: Tue 02 Nov 2010, 01:13    Post subject:  HP PSC 1210xi Prints Garbage (Solved)  

I am currently using Puppy 5.11 and loving it.

I installed hpliplite according to the instructions found on the message boards, including installing libnetsnmp-15. My printer (HP PSC 1210xi) does not require additional plugins, so I didn't install any.

I configured the printer with CUPS and for the first time something printed when I went to print a test page. Unfortunately, it was not the test page that was supposed to print.

I've attached a scan (Xsane is working just fine) of what printed as the "test page".

Can anyone help me figure out what is missing that I need to add? This looks like it is missing just one step.

I'm not sure that's going to help - or do you have the same printer, and had the same problem?
HPLIP contains the HPIJS drivers and the drivers needed for scanning. If the printer is supported that should work.

theinfamousj - did you actually try printing anything else? I have a feeling the printer might be set up fine, just something else went wrong with the test page.

I tried installing hpijs first before installing the other driver With hpijs, the printer didn't do anything. No commands from the computer seemed to be interpreted. HPIJS is not the answer.

I tied printing "I like cheese." as typed in both GEANY and Abiword. Abiword printed similar coding "garbage". It appears that what is printing is the source code of what the page should look like. You know, if you open a .doc file or a .abw file in Geany instead of its target program.

In Geany it printed flawlessly. But I cannot print just from Geany. I need to print out boarding passes and whatnot. And things with pictures in them.

If you print to CUPS-PDF is the pdf produced correctly?

Brilliant! I don't know why there are different drivers in hpijs vs the package I originally installed, but there are. I fear that the original hpijs drivers in the larger package (hp...lite) are corrupt somehow, since they claim to bear the same driver files.

Anyway, installing hpijs worked beautifully. I have attached the package to this post to help out anyone else with my problem.

Yep these instructions have been helpful to me, exact same problem, running 529 and using a hp printer. There seems to be an issue with the hplip and hpliplite packages here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27519
