Description João Mauricio de O. Alves 2006-02-14 12:16:25 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; pt-BR; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20060202 Fedora/1.0.7-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
   We are unable to use the full features of HP Color LaserJet 2840 (All-in-one) over the network. We don't have a "print server" attached to the printer. We are using the network interface provided in the HP 2840.

   The system-config-printer utility does not show the printer family (the better choice seems to be Color LaserJet 2550). If we could use the hp-setup utility, I think we could use the full features of the printer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hplip (up2date hplip)
2. hp-setup

Actual Results:  -bash: hp-setup: command not found

Expected Results:  We should have been able to use the hp-setup utility to install the printer over the network.

Alternatively, we could be able to configure the printer using system-config-printer

Additional info:

1. Uninstall hplip (rpm -e hplip)
2. Get the hplip source from Internet
3. Install from source.

Comment 2 João Mauricio de O. Alves 2006-02-17 06:16:34 EST
   This update fixes the problem. I removed the hplip installed from source
(make uninstall), removed all hp-* files in the /usr/bin. I got the RPM from:

   Now hp-setup is working.
   I still can't configure the printer using system-config-printer, but I think
it could be subject for another bug.
