my epson t20 won`t print.

What Puppy version are you using? I am assuming that you used the built-in Gutenprint driver for your Epson Stylus T20. Usually, these Gutenprint drivers are reliable. But I found info on an Ubuntu site that new Gutenprint versions are broken with this model and you need one earlier than 5.2.5. If you are still interested, I can post a PET for Gutenprint 5.2.3.

I have a HP LaserJet 1000 and have tried several times to get it working with no luck, and I have a tip for others now that I finally had success.
It is used on a laptop that dual boots XP, I had to power it down and back up (unplug) to reset it (no power switch) then it worked.

Is this due to the firmware or what ever the foo2xxx loads not compatible with what is done in XP?

The foo2xxx driver loads the firmware for your Laserjet 1000 through the udev procedure. Look at the file /etc/udev/rules.d/56hplj10xx.rules.

Whenever udev detects the printer being powered up or its USB cable being plugged in, it triggers the firmware download.

I would have thought that as long as the printer was powered up, the firmware installed by XP would still be loaded and the foo2xxx driver would work. If not, Puppy's udev would detect the printer at boot-up and automatically load foo2xxx's firmware.

If neither of those are happening, you can manually load the firmware with this command
Code:
cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl > /dev/usb/lp0

What driver package are you using and where did you get it?

foo2zjs_2010-11 I forget where I downloaded it from , but I posted it somewhere.

rscn51: know any safe way to eject the usb printer device? Maybe deleting the /dev/usb/lb0 ? I just wiped out a hard drive after unplugging it, so there must be a way.

If you built it yourself, then you probably didn't include the optional udev-hotplug-firmware-download stuff.

Looks like it's optional and for other printers:

"Optional) Install hotplug (for HP LJ 1000/1005/1018/1020/P100[5678]/P1505):
$ su OR $ sudo make install-hotplug
# make install-hotplug

Unplug and re-plug the USB printer"

I might be missing it but is there supposed to be a printer (&scanner) driver for the HP Photosmart Premium C310? *In the .pet at the other end of this thread.

BTW I switched to a fresh Slacko5.3.3 (from Lucid 5.2.Cool

Thanks. I didn't scroll down far enough. It wasn't just photosmart C310 ir was Photosmart Premium C310 (sigh)

BTW I tried the latest lucid update and that solved some of my wife's lock up problems. Anyway, I appreciate your help.

I've been switching back and forth between that and slacko which is helping me crawl to a (slightly) lelss noob level experience.

One thing I don't quite get. Is the source of all the drivers hplip? Its nothing important I'm just curious how things work and what came from what / where.

They come from here. But it's a stripped-down build specifically for the Puppy environment.

I'm trying to remember the hoops I jumped through to print from puppy to a Win2K computer with an HP Laserjet 4.

pnethood is working fine
if I run nslookup
Server 192.168.1.1
Address 192.168.1.1 pc2

Name ULTIMATE-D5B436
Address 1 192.168.1.107 ultimate-d5b436

I can ping the Win2k Box ok. The firewalls are off on both sides. It kind of making me loops. Earlier in this thread you talked about smbw I'm not familiar with that.

Could you suggest any trouble shooting plan that might help me figure out this (No Doubt Dumb) error I'm making?

Thanks - J

In CUPS, what URI are you using to install the printer?

I've tried a variety of them - currently its set to
smbc://WORKGROUP/ultimate-d7b349/HPLaserjet-4

In the "Printers" part of CUPs it says
LaserJet (Default Printer)
"password@WORKGROUP\ultimate-d5345\HPLaserjet-4:
Not enough \ Characters in service"

Not enough \ Characters??

Anyhow in the same page it says
"Device URI:smbc://WORKGROUP/ultimate-d5b345/HPLaserjet-4"
Printer state:stopped, accepting jobs, published.


It seems odd that the uri is not the same as the description. In pnethoodsambashares the password seem to be required. I'm feeling like I can see the forest because all the trees are in the way.

I may have really munged things I downgraded CUPs to the 1.3.11 rev.

I double checked that I can print fromthe windoze box.

First of all, install the smbw backend from Page 1. If you actually need authentication, it is the best choice. It is listed in CUPS as "Windows/Samba Printer".

Try
Code:
smbw://ultimate-d5b345/HPLaserjet-4

What CUPS messages do you get?

If you think that authentication is required, use
Code:
smbw://usename:password@workgroup/ultimate-d5b345/HPLaserjet-4

What messages do you get?
