I have tried for two days to install this wireless printer with no luck. Since Zen is a minimal install, I have added printerdrake, all the hp pkgs, Samba etc. The 'add printer' icon in PCC is greyed out and the HP Manager gives me a 'ppd file not found' error although the file exists in /usr/share/hp.
I had no problem setting this printer up in PCLOS KDE4 using PCC and one of the bunties installed it automatically. Could use one of these installs for printer access but much prefer Zen as my principal system!
Maybe I'm missing a pkg or two?
Thanks for any help!
first check your system is fully updated, the fact that 'add printer' is grayed out, may be because 'cups' service is not running,
the ppd related to a configured printer should be found in /etc/cups/ppd once the printer is configured, the one in /usr/share/hp is a 'template' file.
about possible missed packages, check for 'cups', 'ghostscript', 'hplip'.
You can also try to configure your printer using a cups admin interface, pointing your browser to http://localhost:631
if the page is not available that means that cups is surely not running.
