Cannot get this printer to work through LL. It responds by throwing out a blank sheet.
In server settings I get "Cups server error. There is an HTTP error - not found." so I cannot adjust these settings.
I know the printer is OK (works on my windows machine) and that all necessary software is downloaded. I did select HP Deskjet 1000c as the nearest driver as I cannot find an exact match on Linux.
Anybody got any ideas? Thanks ..

Was the printer automatically detected when you first started? If so, remove the printer via Menu, System, Printers. Then try re-adding it.

I don't know if what I'm going to show had any relevance, but this is how I got a not willing p1606dn laser-printer to work, some months ago:

sudu to root and:

Code: [Select]
export TMPDIR=/tmp
hp-plugin

eventually
Code: [Select]
hp-plugin -i
for running in a console.

After that I could install the printer and I was happy.

Maybe try?  :)

brian55,

That printer definitely works in LL 2.0 -- I have same one and it is the one shown in the printer setup instructions in the Help Manual:  https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/hardware.html#printer.

Just remove whatever you have now and follow instructions above to setup the printer.  Once it's setup, just use following command to install a package that makes managing the printer easy:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
P.s.  Help Manual page makes reference to "latest master driver for HP printers" and gives a download page for them.  You do not need to do that for this printer.  Just run through setup procedure, then install hplip-gui and you'll be good to go.
