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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hplip (up2date hplip)
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
1. Uninstall hplip (rpm -e hplip)
2. Get the hplip source from Internet
3. Install from source.
Please try the test update:
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.
