Look again. In CUPS 1.4, an auto-detected printer will appear at the TOP of the Models list.

It should be listed as "f2400 series 3.13.7".

Thanks yet again - I went straight to the HP Deskjet section in the drop down rather than looking at the top of the list.

I am trying to print to a Konica Minolta bizbus 250 but Minolta does not seem to support Linux(Unix) like Brother does. I have the IP address but that seems to be all. The Windows disc's are available.

Anyone tryed to interface to this family?

I found some Linux information here. This unit appears to be both Postscript and PCL6 compatible. So your easiest choice in the CUPS setup would be to look under Generic and choose either Postscript or PCL6.

The vendor's site also has a Linux driver, which I have packaged as a PET below. It appears to work in simulated tests. But the crucial issue with these enterprise printers is authentication. In the CUPS Options section, there are settings for authentication, but I have no idea how they work.

Does CUPS auto-detect this networked printer?

@rcrsn51,

Thanks for the '.pet', I'll give it a try on Thursday. This printer is located in the town office - and I'm trying to not boot into Windows when I'm there...

I had found a ppd package on the Internet, but it did not work, I'll retry and log the error message here.

CUPS did find the printer and peasyport LAN scanner did find the IP .

Just got back from a select board meeting and I tried the ".pet" package for the Konica Minolta BizBus 250 printer. And it works. We had to do a site visit in 6 degree weather other wise I would have stuck around and tried to figured out why I again could not do this on my own.

I some times have to wonder why I try to do things myself when a question here just get the answer most quickly...

I'll now have to help windows based co-selectmen with their computers.

Thanks again rcrsn51

Subject description: pulp .03 wizard not working?
 

The printer wizard seems not to work
in 4.1.2-based pulp wizard. I get
a purple screen saying to wait 3-30
sec for default browser to display a
CUPS page that never appears.
Nor does it help to browse to
localhost:631. What next?
This distro boots into about 10MB RAM and
does not run CUPS by default - should
I start it manually somehow?
I am only familiar with ghostscript
used directly to print. Or netpbm.
I could try pdftopbm and pbmtolj.

PostPosted: Thu 02 Jan 2014, 18:59    Post subject: pulp does not have cups, print without it  

I posted to the pulp forum. No cups, no cupsd, no gs. The printer wizard leads nowhere.
(It saves memory not to run cupsd).

I printed with pdftoppm and pbmtolj or ppmtolj (the latter two not found in pulp linux, part of netpbm), to my pcl4 laserjet (should also work with older deskjets). pbmtolj and ppmtolj are available from http://keesan.freeshell.org/bl
along with ghostscript (gs) and netpbm (full set of programs) for older glibc (2.3.6 or older).

There are ways to print directly with ghostscript if it is compiled for your printer.

As I understand it, the Puppy foo2xxx .pet installs into Puppy Linux systems all the following foo2xxx printer drivers:

foo2zjs
foo2hp
foo2oak
foo2xqx
foo2lava
foo2slx
foo2hiperc
foo2qpdl

At the time of writing the latest version of this .pet is called foo2xxx_rcrsn-2013.02.05 and can be downloaded from

http://www.datafilehost.com/d/ce2c9afa

Some Later versions of Puppy (including puppy 5.7.1) may need a patch, currently called foo2xxx_udev_patch_upup387-1.0.pet to use this.


See

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59015

for the latest version and information. Also see

----------------------------------------


The work being done in this forum and with the various .pet packages is great so I don't want to be too picky / complaining but if I don't explain the following those doing the great work may not know how to improve it.

I just purchased a new Fuji Xerox laser printer. Before purchasing I knew that there was at least a Linux driver for this model but I hadn't checked up on the Puppy support. Now needing to run it from Puppy, I did what I expect most people searching for a Puppy driver would do, That is a search of the murga-linux.com/puppy forum using either or both its own own search and using google with site:murga-linux.com/puppy etc looking for the printer. Since I knew the name of the linux driver for my printer I also did a search for any reference to that. I came out empty so I had to compile from the source code, Not easy due to the reduced busybox on Puppy that lacks much of what is assumed to be in a typical Linux. I finally got it working.

Since this was time consuming and would be very difficult for a typical new Windows to Puppy convert, I decided to document it. Extra research I did while doing the documentation showed that this was all a waste of time as there was already a .pet package that would have given me the driver. It was just that printer names and original linux driver names were not on this website (only a link to another website) in a way that didn't allow my searches to find them. I'm hoping that the above will allow other people to get to this driver without the problems that I went through.

The other .pet packages that support other printer drivers also need a similar post on this forum. I would do it but I don't understand them as much as I now understand this one. It doesn't need all the information of the above but it should list the full name of each printer that is supported. Hopefully there is a list somewhere that can be cut and pasted into this forum.

Subject description: StarMicronics TSP100 Tear Bar (Receipt Printer)
 

It's been suggested I ask here for printer help.
This printer StarMicronics TSP100 is about 6 years old. I have a CD that came with it that includes drivers for Linux and a .rpm installation file.
It has spent it's life so far tied to a series of cheap laptop computers that ran winXP. The setup for windows was difficult to get through also, but I had time because the printer wasn't being used 7 days a week. Currently, I'm limited to a few hours a day to play with this.
This is part of a our somewhat home-spun POS system. All it prints is a webpage formatted for this printer. It serves no other purpose or prints anything else.
I should also mention the browser (Firefox) gets a few customizations in the about:config that also takes some monkeying to get right.
The puppy version I'm trying to convert to is Lupu 528, only because I believe its stable, and have been using it on other computers.
I managed to unrpm and then run the .rpm file. I've gone over the various setting in the CUPS printer wizard a number of times.
It does print the test page correctly, but it won't print from the browser. There's a number of things I haven't tried "yet", including the /tmp folder, which must have a full set of write permissions as was mentioned in the very first post to this thread, along with the file /dev/null.
I disabled the puppy firewall like this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Code:
#!/bin/ash
modprobe fbcon
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall ]; then
#  /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall start
fi

And that worked! Except for getting the page size right, but while I was adjusting that a message in orange said "saving ram to pupsave file" and then it didn't work anymore!
After a little more banging around, I decided to go ahead and do a full install dual booting puppy/winXP and that changed a few things.
Had to adjust the print_scaling in about:config from 1 to 3. Bottom line is today (2/23/14) we're going live with Puppy!

PostPosted: Sun 30 Mar 2014, 07:50    Post subject: Fail in scanning with HP Printer all-in-one HP CM1312 MFP  

Hi. I’m new with Puppy Linux (slacko 5.6) and I have a HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP. But I can't use the scanner.
Following the instructions of the 1st post in this thread, I installed "hplip_print-3.13.x.pet" and "hplip_scan-3.13.x.pet".
Then I installed the Printer by CUPS.
No problem with printing documents and images. But I can’t use the scanner.
If I write “sane-find-scanner”, the answer is “found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x4e17 [HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP]) at libusb:002:007”.
If I write "scanimage –L”, the answer is “device ‘hpaio:/usb/HP_Color_LaserJet_CM1312_MFP?serial=00CND895QHVG’ is a Hewlett-Packard HP_Color_LaserJet_CM1312_MFP all-in-one”.

When I try to scan using Xsane, I obtain this error:
"Failed to open device ‘hpaio:/usb/HP_Color_LaserJet_CM1312_MFP?serial=00CND895QHVG’: Error during device I/O". I think this is due to the lack of HP plug-in 2.8.10.
What can I do?

Thanks in advance.

As stated in the How-To, your Laserjet Pro p1102w needs the foo2xxx package instead of HPLIP. You have installed foo2xxx, but are picking an HPLIP model in CUPS. Go farther down the Models list to find the right one.
