PostPosted: Fri 23 May 2014, 07:00    Post subject: Slacko-5.5XL OK
Subject description: hp Laserjet Professional p1102w
 

EDITED: Deleted the old printer/driver set up first.

When I select "ADD PRINTER" the following list appears

HP LaserJet Professional P 1102w (HP LaserJet Professional P 1102w) [Use this one]

HP LaserJet Professional P 1102w USB 00000000xxxxxxxxxxxx HPLIP (HP LaserJet Professional P 1102w)

SCSI Printer

pdf writer (PDF)

Following instructions, I did not pick any printer or driver with "HPLIP" in the name. I scrolled far down the driver list and found the foo2 version. I selected that one and it does print the test page. (Default is Medium 3 darkness)

EDIT#2: What messed me up here was the first printer driver on the list exactly matched the selected Printer name (no HPLIP). I did not think I was using HPLIP. As referenced, I had to scroll way down the list to find the correct version.

I tried printing from LibreOffice4 and report that it works well even when there is some color in the orig. document.

PDF is next...works fine.

Webpage printing through FF23 works fine

3 pages, good formatting good B/W copy

Thanks for this.

Cannot scan
HP Deskjet 3510 all-in-one printer
Toshiba laptop A35-S4527
Installed the following:
printer-scanner-001.sfs
printer-scanner-drivers.sfs
hplip_print-3.13.7.pet
hplip_scan-3.13.7.pet
cups-1.3.11-i486.pet

This is my main OS... Tman's warytiny... somehow just corrupted my year old savefile... no backup... recovering and, once again, I can print, but not scan...

See attachments...

Thank you for your help...

I have no idea what those packages are or what they have to do with TinyWary. This looks like another example of a puplet builder who stripped out a bunch of stuff without thinking about the consequences.

However, you appear to be connecting to a networked unit. Is there any chance that its IP address is no longer 192.168.1.104?

I checked the IP address... it is correct.

Again, I can print (wireless)... just cannot scan. Before my savefile crashed... I could print and scan. However, it was set up over a year ago and I don't remember the details.

Yes, warytiny is stripped...

I will keep working on it until I can scan...

Anyway, thank you for taking a look at it...

Get libusb_5xx-1.0.pet.

rcrsn51...

FYI, I loaded Saluki023 and Precise571. I used my same process and was successful at getting the scanner to work.

However, using my same process, I was not able to get the scanner working with Fluppy013. Anyway, I could not get the printer-scanner-drivers.sfs to load. I believe Fluppy013 is based on Wary, too?

Also, on warytiny,I checked all pets that I loaded for their respective dependencies... hplip_scan-3.13.7.pet required dbus-glib... I installed it, but the scanner still would not work...

I installed WaryTIny, Peasyscan, the lastest hplip_scan and libusb-1.0. Scanning worked OOTB with my HP Deskjet. I did not need those SFS packages which I suspect you got from the abandoned Saluki project.

If you want a light-weight Puppy, just get Wary 55.

You won't believe this, but this morning when I booted up my laptop, I tried to scan a document and the scanner worked just fine.

See attached screenshot. I'm back in business. The next thing I will do is backup my newly created warytiny savefile. I've used warytiny for a long, long time. I want to stay with it. It is small, fast and usually very stable.

You are right about the printer-scanner.sfs. I believe it loads an older version of peasyscan and sane scan. I will delete it from my install process. I could be wrong, but the printer-scanner-drivers.sfs may help me find my specific HP 3510 Deskjet printer. I will double check this before I delete this particular sfs file.

Thank you!!! I really appreciate your knowledge and your willingness to support us.

In my test with WaryTiny, I could not get a printer installed in CUPS. So you may still need the cups-1.3.11-i486.pet. I don't know if this is because CUPS was broken in the original Wary 511 or because Tman took something out.

Yes, I did install cups-1.3.11-i486.pet... It's now part of my new process.

Again, Thank you...

PostPosted: Wed 01 Oct 2014, 10:38    Post subject: Canon MG5300 Series printer & canon_mg5300-3.60.pet
Subject description: Installed ok but won't print: STATE:stopped "Empty print file!"
 

I am using Lupu 5.2.8.6 on a Dell Dimension 3000 connected via USB to a Canon PIXMA MG5350. After I installed "canon_mg5300-3.60.pet", CUPS - (Ver.: 1.4.3) - installs it ok using: "Canon-mg5300 Series Ver. 3.60" driver. It will not print from a 'print-ready-version' of an email; also when I try to do a Maintenance "Print Test Page" it STOPS & the job dialogue says: "Empty print file!" Also when I try to do a "Print Self-Test Page", I get:

Print Self-Test Page Canon_MG5300_series Error
Unable to send command to printer driver!
Unsupported format 'application/vnd.cups-command'!

I have instaled; uninstalled; & re-installed several times but no joy. I also set printer as default server printer but that did not seem to do anything...?
I have unsuccessfully been trying to add the following as an attachment: "http://localhost:631/admin/log/error_log?" but I keep getting:"The Extension is not allowed" ? & when I clicked on "Allowed Extensions & Sizes", I get:

Allowed Extension Groups and their Sizes

Archives -> Maximum Upload Size: 0 Bytes (???!!!)
ace, bz2, gtar, gz, pet, pup, rar, tar, zip

Images -> Maximum Upload Size: 0 Bytes (???!!!)
gif, jpeg, jpg, png, tga, tif, xpm

It is nearly 03:30 am here in New Zealand & I am too tired to work it out...
Thank you in anticipation...
