RFE: better support for LaserJet Pro M1536dnf
Last modified: 2012-10-10 04:54:53 EDT
Description of problem:
The LaserJet Pro M1536dnf is not identified and cannot be used
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install hplip from RHEL 6.3
2. add to the network a LaserJet Pro M1536dnf ( including direct and reverse DNS )
3. Try to use hp-setup to add the new printer
The printer is not seen at all and not accepted even when its IP is manually specified. Therefore it cannot be configured and used via hplip. I have tried all the supported methods including text, GUI, automatic search, manual specification of the IP and manual specification of the hostname.
The printer should be discovered as hp:/net/HP_LaserJet_M1536dnf_MFP?ip=$IP or similar
I have adapted and recompiled hplip-3.12.9-6.src.rpm from Fedora 16 and it is almost OK. I say almost because there are some glitches here and there ( most notably, the identification step sometimes fails, too ) but all functions that I have tested ( print, scan ) work fine now.
This model is supported (albeit requiring the proprietary HP plugin) in 3.12.4, an update for which is currently being evaluated.
