Hello everyone,
My Father has an HP PSC 1210 Printer / Scanner / Copier 3 in 1 printer.
As I am trying to get him using Puppy, he always complains that Puppy is of no use to him unless it can print.
As the PSC 1210 printer driver isn't included in Puppy 2.10 or the new updated Puppy 2.13 I went to HP and downloaded the hplip-1.6.12 tar.gz driver package and unzipped it.
I found the driver and unzipped it into a new folder.
My question is there any way I could paste it into Puppy's printing Package so I can chose that driver from the list.
The driver ends in .ppd format

Sorry klhrevolutionist,
I wasn't sure where to put my question.
OK I will be home from work in 2 hours so I hope this post isn't moved until I get home to save the Link you gave in Bookmarks on my home PC.
It looks like the info I need!

I've used this Cups Dotpup to get my Printer working in Puppy.
While it's an excellent Package its only drawback is the requirement for a internet connection. (My father doesn't have one)
If you have the driver can you use this package without the need to connect to the net.
If not can the Driver be pasted into the correct folder and if yes which folder is it.

You need hpijs and some lib's (libnetsnmp.so.9 and libcrypto.so.0.9.8. )
It works with PDQ .
