Supported printers and scanners?

Postby Roland » Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:58 am

How could I see the complete list of supported printers and scanners in each PPC Linux distro? "Print Settings" or e.g. "Simple Scan" does not do that, they just allow to select a periferal if it is already connected.

That doesn't quite include my HP OfficeJet Pro 8710, and indeed it prints junk from Ubuntu on my X5000. But the Amiga side prints well, and if I print from Ubuntu via my Raspberry Pi, it comes out perfectly. How come Ubuntu can't do that?

?. I don't use Ubuntu on X1000.

Searching a bit further would have brought you to this page. https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imag ... /downloads

It may already be installed, just not selected. (?)

I stopped my browser twice waiting so long for that page to load that I thought Firefox had conked out. But I finally found my printer supported, downloaded and installed that recommended hplip thingy (I seem to have had an older version that was replaced, maybe). At the end of the install process there was a box I could check for a test page, and it produced the same ugly meaningless color bands across the black and white page that I had got previously on the X5000 and long ago on the X1000. :roll:

Somewhere about the end of the install process I got this:

Code: Select all
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:127: RuntimeWarning: PyOS_InputHook is not available for interactive use of PyGTK
  set_interactive(1)


I guess I'm in for a bunch of googling.

On more message I don't understand:

Code: Select all
Checking for Configured Queues....
warning: Fail to read ppd=/etc/cups/ppd/HP-Officejet-Fax-4.ppd file
warning: Insufficient permission to access file /etc/cups/ppd/HP-Officejet-Fax-4.ppd
warning: Could not complete Queue(s) configuration check
Checking for HP Properitery Plugin's....
No plug-in printers are configured.
Diagnose completed...


Why does it want to read the fax stuff? I don't think I can use fax on my printer unless I string a long phone line from the modem in my living room.

Could you please post the output of ls -l /etc/cups/ppd/HP-Officejet-Fax-4.ppd?

Actually, I don't use fax at all. I would have to string up a long phone cord somehow.

What I want to do is print from the X5000 Ubuntu instead of having go through the Raspberry Pi all the time, but the X5000 gives color-smeared pages (even supposedly black and white documents). I wonder if there is any clue in my weird Print window?

Actually I don’t use a printer with my X5000 and X1000 but I will test a driver installation.

I think I probably messed up the hplip install (printer not connected and/or turned off?) and would like to start over from scratch, but I think I would need to get rid of what is installed now. Would you believe I have no idea how to do that?

Did you configure your HP printer with the HPlip gui? You can install it with the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
