Dear puppy Gods!

I got an overall problem with printing.
I'm working on 4.2.1 on a USB

I always have my printer(s) on a USB for my laptop doesn't have any other option except wireless (may the first one using that without problems please stand up) which I cannot use for it doesn't work at all

When I look for a printer in CUPS (http:\\localhost:631) It just finds it and installs it well.
I did install all the packages correctly, and did some modifications which were recommended here.

When giving the printer a order, or want to print a test page it just gives me:

usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed


Anyone to help me?

Thanks!

Still trying to print to the hp930c ? ... Have you installed rcrsn51's HPIJS 3.9.4 ?

After installing the hpijs driver, you'll also need the patched foomatic-rip ...

LOL, that would be me! But man, what a pain to set up. HP Photosmart c4380. Had to use my wifes Wndows PC to get it to recognise the network and the set up software was so bad it took two days and many hours of Google to fix it, plus downloading patches, but once it could use the network, all was fine. I use this package http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46610

Thanks for helping!

But it still gives the same problem.

I'm not only working with the HP930c but also on my laptop of the company there I'm working on a HP5740 series.
For the 5740 there is no driver but I assume that the 5700 works out well.

I did install both packages and moved them to /usr/lib/cups/filter/ (foomatic PET) and to /usr/lib/cups/drivers (HPIJS)

It might be that usr/lib/cups/filter is corrupt. But don't know how to get a good one back without making a new USB flash, for what I have right now is fantastic!

The foomatic scripts are not supposed to be moved ... ditto for the hpijs drivers ... Once installed, they're supposed to be where they are supposed to be ... moving them puts you back to square one, thus defeating the "defeatless" ... Laughing
