Hello
I am running frugal install tahr 605 on a dell vostro 1320, 2gb ram 2.2ghz and have been using it for months. I like tahr 605 alot but tried to print for the first time and got cups-pdf, print to file.
Has anyone a simple description of how to add a printer, a hp laserjet 1020 to tahr. I have read up but as a beginner it doesnt work. Tried foo2xxx_rcrsn.pet and that wouldnt install.
Any ideas.
Thanks
number77

Details please. I just installed the foo2xxx driver in Tahrpup605 and it installed fine.

1. I downloaded the PET to a temporary location.
2. I click-installed it.
3. I ran the CUPS setup wizard.

I downloaded foo2xxx_rcrsn-2016.06.29.pet to root and get error message foo2xxx_rcrsn-2016.06.29.pet failed to install. Do I need the printer connected to load the driver.

Hi !
Dont know if it is related......
Had a while ago also problems installing some pets....some pets failed to install ......as far as i remember....Had something to do with type of compression of the pets (gzip or xz ).....but ....maybe i am wrong ....just a vague memory .

It sounds to me like you are not getting a good download from Mediafire. The md5sum is

Code:

why are you installing this PET? Adding a printer using the CUPS that is present in Tahr 6.0.5 should suffice.

from the beginning... open your browser and open http:/localhost:631
the CUPS web interface should open. Click on the "Administration" tab then "add a printer" or "Find a printer". Make sure the printer is connected and turned on beforehand.

Are you doing these steps or similar?

He needs that driver package for his old HP Laserjet 1020.

@rockedge: We don't know where number77 is located, but could you (or anyone else) download the PET from MediaFire and check the md5sum?

It works for me.

Has anyone got a link to the correct foo2xxx_rcrsn-2016.06.29.pet so I can check the md5 and try again.
Thanks

I found the file and downloaded it again and this time its checksum was right and it installed and cups printer wizard worked perfectly.
Thank you all for the help you make puppy linux possible for me.
Thanks again.
