Subject description: localhost631
 

I love Tahr puppy and have used it for quite a while. Only problem is printing. I cannot get to "localhost 631" so I cannot set up my printer. Why is it always so difficult to set up wireless printing in Puppy? On Ubuntu and Linux Lite, the printer is immediately recognized and print set up is effortless...(even my Chromebook was easier to print from) Puppy has never made it easy. My printer is an HP 3510, and I'm on Tahr pup 6.0.5, but the problem recurs when I go back to 6.0.2. There seems to be no way to get a printer working! HELP!! My computer is a Fujitsu Lifebook T1010, if that helps...

I just did a fresh install of Tahrpup 605. I went to localhost:631 using the default browser with no problems. I could also get there through the CUPS wizard. I installed a network printer with no problems. I then installed an HP Deskjet USB printer with no problems.

Be aware that the correct URL is "localhost:631" with a colon.

Have you changed browsers? Have you installed any additional packages that may have broken Puppy ownership/permissions? Are you running the firewall?

Sorry bout that. No, I STILL cannot get theprinter working. In fact, I cannot get the Cups page to come up as it should when you try to install printer. I am trying to reinstall Tahr, thinking that the original install CD may have been flawed. Have not completed that step yet, but will keep you posted.

Subject description: I upgraded to latest service pack, Printer not in recognition list.
 

EDIT:
I rebooted, and now am able to print, for the time being.
The "CUPS+Gutenprint v 5.2.10-pre2 (en)" seems to be
the correct driver for the Canon MG7520 printer.

This post won't be deleted for future reference,
in hopes that it may help another user in a similar situation. Smile

============================================

Hi, Adding this screen shot, I have a Canon MG7520, which has scanning, printing sharing, and
network capabilities. I don't see any sd card slots on this printer. In any case, Tahrpup doesn't
seem to want to cooperate with it.

I am wondering if I'm doing something wrong. The print que seems to think that I'm printing successfully.

I have installed service_pack-6.0.3_TO_6.0.5_tahr.pet, and my OS seems to be updated.

Thanks in advance, Duckguy Confused

it is not a perfect solution but it works for me.

I set up my wireless printer as GooglePrint device.

I print all my doucments to pdf form and have created a Googleprint directory to which have a tab in the Google Chrome and print wirelessly from there Easliy. Bypassing Cups and any printer setup.

Subject description: HP 3510 series printer
 

Ok, I can now pull up the CUPS page, but still no printing. When I try to add the printer as a wireless, it is not found. After it is found as a USB printer, I go to the list of printers, choose HP, and there is no listing for DeskJet 3510 or 3511. The 2500 series does not work, the 3800 series does not work. Here's the thing: When I test Linux Lite, 2.8, the printer is IMMEDIATELY up and ready to go, NO PROBLEMS!!! I love Puppy, and have been using and recommending it for YEARS. But the printing problems just drive me up a wall!! I don't need some snipey replies, I just need solutions. I'm not a techie, but I CAN follow most tech instructions. I want to stay with Puppy, but the printing problems are pushing me away. Linux Lite and Zorin and even UBUNTU seem more print friendly. If you can't print from an OS, why would you stay?

The post at the top of this section is titled How to Install your Printer/Scanner in Puppy. It explains how most printers will require you to install a driver package, because the built-in Gutenprint driver may not match your model. In your case, you want hplip_print. If you read through the article, you will find a download link for this driver.

Subject description: hp lip
 

I have installed hp lip file, but that didn't help either. The fact is that Puppy has one big flaw, recognizing printers. I got an HP printer because they were easily recognized by Puppy...NOT...I guess it's time to move on. No help here...
