Subject description: Should I install HPLIP Lite over working CUPS/HPJIS installation?
 

Hi,

After searching in the forums and a lot of mucking around, I actually have my HP Photosmart D7260 printer working via either a direct USB connection or (drum roll!) wirelessly over my Airport wireless network with an Ethernet connection to the Airport base station. Cool! Smile

I'm using the "downgraded" 1.3.9 CUPS under Puppy 4.2, along with the HPJIS driver set from the 4.x repositories.

What I want to know is whether I can now install HPLIP so I get HP's Linux control center program, which I used briefly under Sidux and was pretty cool, showing ink levels, cartridge alignment and so on. Can I just install the HPLIP Lite pup over what I have now? Or should I just not fix it if it ain't broke? Laughing

I don't think HPLIP lite has a control centre or anything - you need the monster HPLIP for that.
I don't see any reason why installing HPLIP should break your system.

Disciple,

Thanks very much. If I can install it over my current system, and trash it if it screws things up, I'll give it a go.
Very Happy
