Sub_title: is it Python version wrong?
 

I am trying to install my older printer using the full version of hplip-3.12.6 , downloaded from HP's Linux Open Source Printing repository - because I know this library has my driver in it, my printer was listed when installed on my other Slacko Puppy distro and the printer is working in my Slacko..but I'm trying to setup Racy 5.3 to leverage more available RAM since my laptop has 4 Gb.

Hplilp installation scripts are written in Python, so I try to install Python 2.6 then during "sh hplilip-3.12.6.run" I get a segmentation fault when executed as root, and permission denied when executed as user. I did chmod a+x, still not working, so I'm curious if there's something going on with Python?

Any ideas? Thank you!!!

I looked in Slacko 533 and I couldn't see a Gutenprint driver close to your printer. What Slacko version are you using?

Please check in Slacko. Run CUPS and see what driver is being used by the printer.

Did you read the post directly above this one titled "How to Install Your Printer/Scanner in Puppy"? It contains a ready-built HPLIP package. However, the closest model that I can see is for the Photosmart d110 series.
