Unable to print to HP printer attached to XP Pro PC from Fedora 10
Posted on 2009-07-10
I have Win XP Pro installed on my home PC with a HP Deskjet F2280 printer attached via USB, which works OK. The printer is shared on the PC.
My laptop has Fedora 10 on it and is unable to print to the printer. I have set it up as a Samba printer smb://homepc/hp as per various forums and using HP's Device Manager hplips
When printing from the laptop, the printer appears to print i.e. the feeder runs for a second then stops. The print queue on the Windows PC shows 64.0k/2.04MB and gets no further. What can be happening?
