Description of problem:
I was trying to set up an Hp5500 and useed hp-setup to do this and went through the installer. When I got done this is what I got as an error message:
Setting up device: hp:/usb/officejet_5500_series?serial=MY49RG10J296
(Note: Defaults for each question are maked with a '*'. Press <enter> to accept the default.)
warning: One or more print queues already exist for this device: Hpofficejet5500, officejet_5500_
Would you like to install another print queue for this device? (y=yes, n=no*, q=quit) ?y
PRINT QUEUE SETUP
Using queue name: oj5500
Found a possible PPD file: foomatic:HP-OfficeJet_5500-hpijs.ppd
Desc: HP OfficeJet 5500 Foomatic/hpijs
Note: The model number may vary slightly from the actual model number on the device.
Does this PPD file appear to be the correct one (y=yes*, n=no, q=quit) ?y
Enter a location description for this printer (q=quit) ?home
Enter additonal information or notes for this printer (q=quit) ?homelocal
Adding print queue to CUPS:
Device URI: hp:/usb/officejet_5500_series?serial=MY49RG10J296
Queue name: oj5500
PPD file: foomatic:HP-OfficeJet_5500-hpijs.ppd
Information: homelocal T
raceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/hp-setup", line 623, in <module>
cups.addPrinter(printer_name, print_uri, location, print_ppd, info)
TypeError: addPrinter() takes exactly 6 arguments (5 given)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Go to the terminal.
2. At the terminal go to your root acount.
3. Once at root type "hp-setup".
4. Follow the steps as expected.
5. At the end you will see the error message I got. However, I am unsure if this is every Hp printer or just certain ones.1.
An error message came up see above in description.
The queue should have been made properly. The upstream developers I assume are aware of this but have provided no fix that I am aware of except for a couple of patches.
The computer which has the printer attached is a Dell Dimension 4600.
