Sub_title: 3745 is not on list is there another that will work?
 

Never installed a printer in Puppy. 3745 is not on the list, is there another that will work?
Cheers

The thread directly above this one discusses how to install a printer in Lupu. Go there and get the hplip_print-3.11.7.pet. It has a driver for the Deskjet 3740 series.

I have vector installed on the os partition of that drive. Somehow I corrupted the installation, I can install the printer but it won't print. The print server isn't working. Everything else seems ok. Now that I have Puppy 525 installed (save2 file) and the printer is working, I will leave vector as it is.
Cheers

Are you confirming that the hplip_print-3.11.7.pet installed your HP Deskjet 3745 in Lupu 525? This is useful information for other users if you specifically say so.
