Thank you! I can finally print (and in colour too)!

Puppy 2.17, HP Deskjet F380, connected via USB.

In CUPS, installed as "HP Deskjet F300". Tried to print a test page. Worked!

(Although there was no entry for my F3-eight-zero, the driver for F3-zero-zero was good enough.)

This is the first time I've had any luck with CUPS. Until now my printers haven't been compatible.

Thanks again!

Thanks for creating that Wolf Pup. Puppy4 Dingo uses CUPS 1.1.23, so should be ok. I have not tested it with Dingo, but have gone ahead anyway and put your PET package into the official Dingo repository.

Anyone running Dingo and got a HP printer to test this PET?

Sure. I just tried this PET in Dingo Alpha 6.

Unfortunately, I couldn't set up my HP Deskjet F380.

Went into "Setup CUPS printing" but, when it was time to choose the driver for my HP Printer, I didn't find HP Deskjet F300 Foomatic/hpijs, hpijs 2.8.2.10(en) which was what got my printer to work in Puppy 2.17.

(What I did:
Downloaded and booted into Dingo alpha 6.
Opted for a 512MB save file during reboot.
Once back in, installed the HPIJS 2.8.2 PET (and rebooted again).
Setup CUPS printing: couldn't find the right driver.)

for the older cups 1.1.x , cups scheduler needs to be reloaded, so that cups will pickup the new PPD's.

Code:
/etc/init.d/cups reload
/etc/init.d/cups restart


I had forgotton unlike 1.2.xx, cups 1.1.x needs to be reloaded first. Embarassed

I'll update the hpijs package, so that the PPD's will register with cups 1.1.xx.

EDIT: package with fix is uploaded.

It works!

Downloaded and installed hpijs-2.8.2_static_fix.pet.
In CUPS, found the HP F300 driver this time.
Printed the test page successfully.

Thanks!

Your earlier version was working OK but then I noticed that on my 4.0 laptop Geany insisted on printing a pdf-writer file when it called:

Code:
/usr/bin/lpr /mnt/home/boot/grub/menu.lst


Your latest version 2.8.7 fixed what was broken and sent the file to the default USB printer and not a pdf-writer file.

THANKS!
