Help With Bluetooth Printing in LMDE <EDIT>

Postby malligt on Sun Feb 13, 2011 6:30 pm

I need some help with connecting a HP 450 Portable Bluetooth Printer to my LMDE Laptop. I've spent most all of this afternoon trying, and failing miserably.

(I can connect this printer with a usb cable to my LMDE laptop and print pages with no problem.)

But, since this is bluetooth enabled, I'd like to be able to use it in that manner. If somebody could direct me in a "basic" set up, I's appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.

<EDIT>

After an entire afternoon of total frustration with googling and trying to bluetooth print in LMDE, I switched tonight to a ubuntu 10.10 laptop to connect my bluetooth HP 460 printer.

It took about 1 minute....Done Deal. Simple and fast.

From a web article*:

"Setting up a Bluetooth printer (in ubuntu) consists of clicking "System/Administration/Printing", then "Add", wait about 30 seconds for it to discover the Bluetooth printer and decide on a driver for it, and then click "OK". That's it, all done, ready to print".

Amen.

LMDE has a long wayyyy to go with regards to bluetooth simplicity in my opinion. I'm sure its on somebody's to-do list on the dev team (I hope).
