Yast2 Add new printer configuration

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Opensuse 11.2 Trying to use yast to add a new hp c8180 which sits on the network. The wizard sees the printer at the correct ip address but adding the ppd times out after 15%. The 3 buttons marked : Search,More Drivers and Add Driver appear useless. I have the printer driver on the disk and manually feed the path into Add Driver dialog box, but after pressing ok the wizard again tries to retrieve and then times out. :'( Thanks for any ideas Db (Distributions)
