Description Tim Watson 2006-10-28 16:48:23 EDT
Description of problem:
HP Deskjet 720C worked in fc5 but not in fresh install of fc6. hpssd wasn't
running because it couldn't bind to socket. Adding localhost to
/etc/hosts cured that. test print and "echo hello | lp" send job to queue
(checked with lpstat) but no signs of life from printer (it's got power!).

hplip docs show 720C to be unsupported but the fc6 system-config-printer shows
it as a valid printer (I think it uses a different driver and hpijs?).

service restarts/reboots/uninstall and reinstall printers in various
combinations doesn't help.

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

How reproducible:
Don't know on other machines but on mine it's very reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install printer
2. try to print
Actual results:
it doesn't print

Expected results:
it does print

Should have said that this is probably filed incorrectly as an hplip problem.
Perhaps cups/pnm2ppa would be better.

The seemingly relevant part of the cups error_log is as follows:

Solved (by bryancole on fedoraforum). pnm2ppa wasn't installed.

# yum install pnm2ppa

This needs fixing in the relevant package.
