Description Adam Pribyl 2009-12-14 14:04:57 UTC
Printing to HP 710c on F12 is not possible. The device is setup, but not printing job really is printed on the printer. Problem seems to be with device connected thru parallel port, because when it is tried with hp-setup it reports invalid device URI.

Was working in F10 OK, without any tweaks.

[root@localhost ~]# hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0

What does 'lpinfo -l -v' say ?

Comment 2 Adam Pribyl 2009-12-15 20:53:57 UTC
Created attachment 378628 [details]

There seems to be everything OK in lpinfo. I found that this printer is probably not driven by hplip drivers family but should be using pnm2ppa, so this is maybe problem with different component.

The HP DeskJet 710C is not supported by the HPLIP driver:
