Description of problem:
[from bug 145605]: "printer has no autodetection info supplied in its Foomatic
I've opened this report in order to help supply the missing autodetection
information since I have an HP DeskJet 3650 printer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The HP DeskJet 3650 printer is USB with (from /proc/bus/usb/devices):
Vendor Identifier: 03F0 (hex)
Product Identifier: 7204 (hex)
Manufacturer String: hp
Product String: deskjet 3600
[from bug 145605]: "The information we need is the stuff that
system-config-printer displays in the terminal when you run it in a terminal."
With the printer completely undefined so that fresh information will be
retrieved from the device, running system-config-printer from within a "screen"
session yields an empty printer list. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what I
should be doing to get that ieee 1284 string.
No, not a screen session, but a normal terminal window in a graphical login
session. You should get a message telling you to file a bug report.
Okay, I'll get one of my children to do that. I don't work within the graphical
environment myself as I'm blind and the X environment isn't all that accessible
Okay ... it says:
No match for USB device:
model "deskjet 3600"
Thanks. This is fixed in the development foomatic package.
