I'm trying to set up LMDE for my wife on her MIni. I hit a brick wall today. I was able to install our home wireless printer, a brother (prints beautifully); but the HP printer at work simply refuses to cooperate. When I add "new printer", cups finds the HP, recognizes it, ostesibly installs the correct driver, but when I attempt to print, I keep getting an error. (When I get back to the office this afternoon I can offer more info if necessary). Strangest of all, I seem to get status updates from the HP printer - "Printer is Idle" and that sort of thing. It "sees" the printer and seems to connect, but can't print? (The printer installed perfectly when she was running Mint 9 Isodora.) Let me just start by asking, does this sound familiar? Also, I tried installing installing hplip-3.11.12 but get the error:
warning: Qt/PyQt 4 initialization failed.
error: hp-systray requires Qt4 GUI and DBus support. Exiting.
Any guidance, nearterm, would be deeply appreciated.
