Nothing earth-shattering but... I have an HP Photosmart USB printer that I configured with HPLIP (which seemingly "exports" into CUPS). All is well until the printer is turned off and then back on again sometime later: somebody, somewhere automagically adds the printer to CUPS so that I have two, count 'em, printers defined.
I have Fedora 17, KDE. I open Printer Configuration and choose New Printer. I a CUPS server error, "There was an error during the CUPS operation: ' cups-authorization-canceled'. The printer is plugged in.
I previously added a Photosmart-C2400 sucessfully.
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04. I am trying to set up a photosmart 7520 wireless. I have the drivers that's supposed to work. 3.12.9, but the error message says it can't find the printer. The printer's config. print out lists my computer as a MAC.
I am really, really new at this and I haven't ever done anything more involved than use the computer. Any help there for me?
AirPrint is Apples solution to the mess of printer drivers and Bluetooth pairing. Printers that support AirPrint will be advertised as AirPrint compatible. Most printer manufacturers make printers that are AirPrint-compatible while also supporting other wireless printing standards.
I'm trying to install an HP C4700 Photosmart printer. It came with a software CD which I have in my CD drive, but I'm not sure how to use it. As with Windows it just popped up and I believe a wizard took over from there. No, the printer is not connected to my wireless yet and it doesn't have an ethernet cable. This is a brand new printer for me. How do I go about doing this?
I have a problem, that I first experienced at Epson XP-33 and Epson XP-207, but it proved to be common for other printers as well.
I print different pages in different sizes (small photos, large photos, color print, b/w text). In Windows I did it by creating a copies of my printer in the system, setting separate print options for each printer for each print format.
