Sub_title: Pup Drivers Red Flagged

Which directory under SDA1 should house my hplip & cups drivers?

I made a number of attempts at doing this with the supplied menus but all of those ended up 'unable' generally for "perhaps the driver repos are not up to date". I did update. No work. So the manual job has begun.

2 likely candidates on my HP Office Pro8100 series (double side) 'driver disk' are these: 8100.qpd & 8100_n.inx were copied over to sda1/run/hplip but nothing from the wifi printer yet. Is 'run' the correct subdirectory? I figured so because it had the subdirectory............ hplip.

I even added the "setup.exe" but that didn't do it either....... What files am I missing and where should they be put?

Thanks gurus for reading this! Any hints would be appreciated!

Are you trying to copy the Windows printer driver into Puppy? That won't work.

Have you read "How to Install your Printer" at the top of this section? It has a link to an HP printer driver made just for Puppy.

What does that statement mean? You need to provide better information about your problem.

At this point, you should do a clean re-install of Precise and start your printer setup again.
