As the title says, this is the updated HPLIP for Puppy 3.x. Many thanks go to forum user "lluamco" for his work with bringing the updated HPLIP packages to Puppy 4.0 - With a little more work I was able to find a way to bring them to Puppy 3

Here it goes:

You will need an updated CUPS package (ver. 1.1.23-1) available from the repository:


You will need (for basic printing) Python, hplip-dependencies, and hplip 2.8.7 located here:


libdus, imaging, report-lab, and net-snmp can be added for more functionallity - more info can be found at lluamco's original post: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=471362113&t=27519

Last but not least, if you intend to use Firefox 3.x for browsing (and need to print) you will need a few updated gtk libraries that I have included as an attachment.

Printing has been tested in Firefox, Abiword, Gnumeric, and OpenOffice, and all seem functional.

I would like to report that I got this Printer working, printing and scanning using this advise given in the forum and installed the following.

I am using Puppy linux 3.01 with Cups 1.2.11
hpijs-2.8.9 hp printer drivers

The installation, recognition and operation was seamless and easy.

Subject description: Can't print from abiword, gnumeric and ePDFview.

Hello, I know this is an old post, but I don't like to duplicate posts if not strictly necessary so...

The question: following above instructions I've been able to print a test page from CUPS to my HP OfficeJet J4580 All In One (this wasn't possible with default CUPS in Puppy 3.01 and "hpijs-1.7: HP printers drivers" found at PETget package manager).

I'm able to print from Seamonkey too.

But I'm still having troubles: dependencies troubles, partially solved, and printing troubles, NOT yet solved.

Last ones (really TRUE question) are:
    I can't print from AbiWord or Gnumeric (printer isn't shown on dialog window)
    I can't print from ePDFView (when I select OfficeJet J4580 printer on dialog window it closes suddenly).

Any suggestions are welcome.

By the way... it's possible to use above instructios to install hplip versions newer than 2.8.7 (located at same places that 2.8.7: http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/Printing/hplip_for_dingo/)???.

I've tryed with 3.9.2 with no luck.

Thanks in advance. Robby.
