Description Bernard Johnson 2007-06-26 17:47:49 EDT
Description of problem:
hp-setup can no longer find PPD file for HP Color LaserJet 2840.  This is a
regression since F-7:

# hp-setup -i

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 1.7.4a)
Printer/Fax Setup Utility ver. 4.5

(Note: Defaults for each question are maked with a '*'. Press <enter> to accept

Please enter a name for this print queue (m=use model
name:'HP_Color_LaserJet_2840'*, q=quit) ?
Using queue name: HP_Color_LaserJet_2840
error: Unable to find an appropriate PPD file.

Would you like to specify the path to the correct PPD file to use (y=yes, n=no*,
q=quit) ?

Furthermore, if I specify the path to the file, hplip then says "error: File not
found or not an appropriate (PPD) file.

If I copy the PPD file from F-7, to this devel machine and use that, I'm able to
 continue until the cups queue is being setup then I hit bug #186231.

Can you attach the PPD you were using on F-7 please?
Comment 2 Bernard Johnson 2007-06-28 14:47:07 EDT
Created attachment 158150 [details]

Just to be clear here, bug #186231 existed before I tried to setup this
printer, it was not caused by the PPD that I pulled from F-7.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-08-09 08:56:24 EDT
Please run 'hp-setup -l debug -i', try to configure the queue
again, and show me the output.  Thanks.

This bug seems to no longer exist with hplip-2.7.7-1.fc8.
