A week ago, I started a thread about 2010 Final not finding my HP printer/scanner and toolbox, whereas Beta2 automatically found it.
Since then, I have tried all of the solutions mentioned in various threads, but none of them worked for me.
So, I decided to experiment!
I have just run the Beta2 live cd and done another check that it found my printer/scanner. It did. So I upgraded it with all the packages which I thought were relevant (cups, gutenprint, hplip, hplip-gui, hplip-hpijs, hplip-hpijs-ppds, hplip-model-data, libcups, libhplip0, libsane-hpaio1) and tried the printer again. Up came the message: No installed HP devices found - as is the case with 2010 final.
Are the beta2 packages still available on a repository anywhere? I would like to experiment downgrading these packages from the final, to the beta2 versions, to see what happens.
Sorry if I am completely wrong in my thinking and in what I am trying!
