Sub_title: - thanks to Wolf Pup
 

(running 4.1.2.)

I bought this new HP job in mistake for an earlier model number so I'm relieved to find it is Puppy compatible. The only difficult and time-consuming bit was in finding Wolf Pup's excellent PET, which is here - http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/bugs/hpijs-2.8.10.pet. See thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=26565.

Just downloaded and installed the PET, rebooted Puppy, set up the printer in CUPS (F4100 series are now added to the listing), and away; intuitive process with no newbie-scaring steps requiring command-line intervention.

I've still to investigate the scanning facility on his machine, which I fear may require the (very heavy) hplip download - others may wish to comment on this.

Great job, Wolf Pup.

I would recommend trying first the lite version, hpliplite

Lluis, top marks and thanks for your detailed and painstakingly updated guidance.

Your work is likely to help very many, given the growth in 'all-in-one' printer kit in the market ..... if they know about it.

Maybe it would be good to have your thread - or just your leading post - relocated as a HOWTO, or as a sticky in the hardware => printers area, to help promote awareness.
