First off, I'm not 100% sure which version of Puppy I am running Embarassed
I decided to resurrect an old Sony Vaio (1GHz Athalon 512 MB RAM) just for use when the kiddies have knicked my main laptop. I found a CD with just "Puppy Linux" written on it.

From the menu.lst file, I see it says "Lucid 528".

Anyway, following another thread in this forum, I installed HPLIP withthe following:


I installed my C4380. Everything seemed OK, until I ran a test page print.
Every comes out garbage: Wel, to me it's garbage, though it probably means something to a little piece of software somewhere.

The page starts off:

% This file was generated by... and so on.

Any ideas?

You could try newer versions of hpliplite, suitable for lucid.
I'd suggest reading the first message of this thread http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=439468#439468
or, as alternative, this one http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=444080#444080

Big thanks!

I installed a newer version 3.12.11, but every time I tried to print the test page, it said failed. I then read your post again, fully this time, and followed the first link. I copy/pasted the link creation bit and now the printer works fine.
