I've now come round to wanting to print using my HP Laserjet 1300. Using Synaptic CUPS is installed as is HPlib package. With printer switched on during boot it's not detected. In PCC > Manage Your Hardware > Browse & Configure Hardware I checked the box to autodetect printers. In Configure Printing & Scanning > Setup The Printer, Print Job Queues etc. I click the button and nothing happens!
Searching the forums on similar issues would indicate I need Printerdrake installed as it's not on LiveCD's (?? see below). Searching the repo (I'm on plus) couldn't find it.
I'm on Zen mini and the printer is connected to a parallel printer port and it works perfecly well with the other OS's on my box. The strange thing is, when I first tried out PCLOS the other year, using a LiveCD KDE version, the printer was picked up straight away and printed out a test page!
Any ideas what I'm missing?
