HP LaserJet 4050N

Postby wmeler on Tue Nov 27, 2012 8:22 pm

I just got an old LaserJet 4050N (that works through Windows) and am attempting to get it hooked into LinuxMint.

I have installed hplips and hplips-cups, but nothing prints.
I don't know also if this will work via Wireless like I hope. If not, how am I supposed to physically connect?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

.............it should work with hplip.....

........but as you say, it is getting on .............

here is a guide to setting up hp printers on ubuntu (that mint is derived from .........)

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HpAllInOne

.....let us know how it goes..........

.......one quick check would be to see what shows in

system-config-printer


and if you copy and paste this into a spare browser window

http://localhost:631/admin

you can see top left buttons for .........find new printer...........manage printers.........if you have a rummage around there..............

you have initially connected the 4050 via a USB cable, have you?
