http://forums.opensuse.org – Somewhat new to Linux. I'm running OpenSuse 11.2 and have been having some problems with my c7280 "all-in-One". I initially configured the printer through Yast using the Network IP: Port and driver method. I can get the printer to work correctly, however scanner is not detected even with HP setup. I can't seem to manually configure the scanner. I have downloaded the latest version of HPLIP 3.9.12 and performed an automatic install, the printer is detected, but I can't seem to print though I am able to detect the scanner and install it correctly. The scan function does work. The HPLIP Status Service appears in the System tray, where I can access the Device Manager, and perform a number of functions. It seems I can do everything but print, this includes printing a test page. I was suspecting a firewall restriction, however I feel this would block me from scanning as well as other functions. I am wired directly to a wireless router (DLink655), the printer is connected wirelessly to the same router (IP address is reserved). The printer functions correctly when I boot to Windows (Distributions)
