Subject description: Deskjet 1050 will not work
 

There are eight million stories in the naked city; this is just one.

OK, I installed Slacko 5.3.1 on my friends older Dell notebook, and all is going fine except her Deskjet 1055 (seems to also be a 1050) printer is not cooperating. Here is the history:

1. Set up Puppy 5.3.1 on a 4GB USB stick
2. Try to install printer using Cups 1.4.6, and it finds the printer, but printing does not work. Cups reports that the job has printed, but nothing happens.
3. Install the hplip_print-3.11.10.pet and then use Cups to add the printer again. Now it works ! IDs itself as Deskjet 1050 J410.
4. But we shut down and the printer stops working. Then we go thru various reboots, unplugging/powering off of the printer, and fussing with Cups to no avail. Finally, I delete the Deskjet 1050 printer in Cups in the hope of re-adding it.
5. Now Cups can no longer find the printer, with either the add or the find function of Cups.
6. As an experiment, I boot from Puppy 5.28.04 which uses Cups 1.4.3, and with the hplip_print-3.11.10.pet installed, it works fine.
7. Going back to Slacko 5.3.1, still the printer is not found.

Here is what lsusb -v says:

< this repeated over and over again >

Maybe do some messing with cupsd.conf to reset it ??

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

You could try reading http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=439468&search_id=1801982335#439468
and installing libnetsnmp-15.pet and hpliplite-3.12.2.pet. You should
also execute the code
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0

and reinstall your printer in cups.
I hope that helps.

John, Thanks for your post - I will go over to my friend's house and give this a try. I saw your post and wondered if this would apply since the HP Linux print docs say that hplip_print-3.11.10 covers this printer.

Another question: Since this is not lucid based, is the symbolic link needed for the Slacko version?

Thanks again, Howard

OK, I tried the medicine that you suggested, and all is well now.

As we say here in San Antonio, Muchas Gracias !!

Glad to help. I would suggest you could mark this thread as solved.
BTW, does the scanning work too?
