On the laptop where I had previously attempted to use CUPS (via Fluppy 013 with the P1006 printer) I ran the new PET.

I then tried a Test Print and did not get the error, it displayed that it was printing, then that disappeared and reappeared in the list of completed print jobs - the problem is - the printer never responded at all.

I power-cycled the printer in case there was debris in the buffer, no joy.

I rebooted and tried again, same result.

I then applied the PET to my Netbook, on which CUPS had not previously been used.

I used Find New Printers and accepted all of the defaults.

Same results when I attempted a Test Print.

WDYT?

I would go back to the version of printer-scanner-x.sfs that worked.

Edit. Jemimah's foo2xxx package is incomplete. It's missing the firmware download files required by your printer. Get the new version here.

Just tried 02 and 3 on both machines - no joy.

It's late here, will look for other print SFS's to try tomorrow.

Ahhh, the endless joy of CUPS ...

See my previous message.

I found a copy of printer-scanner-3.sfs. It didn't have the firmware download files either. Has your P1006 ever worked in Fluppy?

Yes, I believe so, but I don't recall when.

My slight uncertainty is that I have one of the several PC's here still on dpup (haven't gotten around to upgrade it) and that could have been where the P1006 worked then stopped working - but I am pretty sure I recall thanking Jemimah for Fluppy and a working CUPS with the P1006.

I have a couple projects to attend to this morning - then will either try to find my post in the archives where I described it working then breaking - or will look for 4.SFS and try it (since 02 and 3 didn't work). Was there an initial un-numbered SFS?

Please read my previous post where I recommend the correct foo2xxx package to use. Tracking down old printer-scanner.sfs files won't solve anything.

I am sorry, somehow I missed that! Sad

Do I need to uninstall anything or will your fooxxx PET overwrite the old stuff?

Just install it.

Make sure that you still have the foomatic-filters-4.0.4-i486.pet installed from the previous page.

I ran the install on that again, just to be sure.

Then I ran the new one.

I ran /etc/init.d/cups restart.

Same result.

Says it is printing but the printer does not respond.

I presumed that the cable and printer are OK since the Netbook used the same connection last evening and automatically recognized the connected printer.

So then I restarted the computer and the printer and HOORAY!

IT WORKS!!

My wife is very pleased ... of course now she wants me to get the HP officejet 4125 working ...

THANKS!!!

It's not a matter of restarting CUPS. You need to restart the printer - or at least unplug and replug its USB cable. This is how Puppy rediscovers the printer and then downloads the required firmware file into the printer's memory.

OK, that's good to know.

The instruction in the PET were not quite as clear as you have now made it.

Thanks again!

Now, with fear and trembling, on to the 4215 ...

Is this a 4125 or a 4215? You have stated both above. However, Fluppy has an HP driver package built-in that may support your printer.

To Jemimah or anybody that can help with Pwidgets.

I use Fluppy 13 on my Acer D250
and it fails to get Analog clock or any of them to show up on the screen when I make use of theme "Love" on background?

What could I be doing wrong? Sure I should test with other backgrounds.
I go do it now.

Edit that did not do it. It says one should use Rox Desktop and that is what I have that was what was set up as default it seems. But Okay I reboot and maybe that is needed.
