Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138335
HP Color LaserJet 8500 series cannot print
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:53 EST
Description: On Fedora Core 3 Test 3 and its cups-1.1.21-4, I'm
unable to successfully print *anything* to HP Color LaserJet 8500
printers with the now available HP Color LaserJet 8500 printer
1: Install FC2test3
2: Set up a network printer of HP Color LaserJet 8500 series with
3: Try to print a test job to it. (Pick letter-size test jobs, since
CUPS still defaults to A3.)
Actual results: Various error messages occur, I'll detail those if I
can find time, but other network printers work fine, so it's not the
networking layer. And FC1 and FC2 can print to it fine, but only have
the 8550GN print driver available, so it may be the new 8500 driver.
Expected results: A successful print job of any kind.
Additional info: I used to be able to print to these with Fedora Core
2 with HP Color LaserJEt 8550GN drivers, but I don't believe that
CUPS on that FC2 had a specific 8500 driver.
