this is my first experience with pclinuxos. I have some linux experience. I use Mandriva on my laptop for two years now. Love it. I wanted PCLinuxOS for my desktop especially the GUI for my wife's sake. I have the FM Kdesktop. So far so good except I went to print a document, my printer is recognized, enabled, green checkmark, no yellow triangle but doesn't work.
When I go to control centre, hardware, configure printing, my printer is there. Right click, settings look fine, click print test page, nothing. Click on policies, under state, policies and banner, everything is greyed out. Same for access control, printer options and job options. I then go to truobleshoot and nothing happens still.
I click on the K, go to more applications, then to printing, then to HP device manager. Error message: No HP devices found. I follow the setup wizard and still get error messages.
I just don't know where to go from here. Very frustrating. Please help. Oh yes, I also wint to K, Software centre, Synaptic package manager, reinstalled hplip and cups. still nothing.
Also, when I p;ugged in my laptop to print a doc the test page from the desktop came out.
PS. this is a USB connected printer
