Description manuel wolfshant 2012-10-05 07:42:50 EDT
Description of problem:
The LaserJet Pro M1536dnf is not identified and cannot be used

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

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:
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.

Expected results:
The printer should be discovered as hp:/net/HP_LaserJet_M1536dnf_MFP?ip=$IP or similar

Additional info:
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.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2012-10-10 04:54:53 EDT
This model is supported (albeit requiring the proprietary HP plugin) in 3.12.4, an update for which is currently being evaluated.
