According to the HPLIP website, your printer requires a minimum of v3.9.6 to support the d2660.
Is the printer direct connected (USB or Parallel)? Or is it network connected?

You really need to read threw all prompts when installing the updated drivers off there site.
Must have been 50 prompts to read threw and follow. Fail to follow them all to the T and your going to have missing dependences and support across the board.
Just download the hplips driver. Right click and enable executable. Now double click and select run, now follow VERY close. You will be prompted to make decisions many times. Follow close or your screwed and must start over.

It even scans across the network for me. Took about 1/2 the time that it took my Dad to install it natively on Windows 7, and it is more reliable.
I have looked at the HPLIP install instructions for Debian and they cover the same version as you have, so it may be worth uninstalling from the package manager and then following the instructions for Debian carefully to make sure it is done right.

Check to see if you are in group lpadmin. The groups that you are in will be listed in the output.
- Code: Select all
When posting output please post the actual error and/or text, thanks.
sgo@sgo ~ $ groups sgo

For normal users other than root add user name to "lp" and "lpadmin" group:
su -c "usermod -a -G lp,lpadmin $USER"
Restart your PC (or) Logout and Login.
If the user isn't listed as a member of 'lpadmin' then he won't be allowed access to the print system. From my system;-
simon adm lp dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare
$ groups simon
simon : simon adm lp dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare
For you, if you need to add the user to lpadmin, it should be something like this (note that you need to use your username, not 'username';-
$ usermod -a -G lpadmin username
sgo sgo # groups
root lp lpadmin
sgo sgo # $ usermod -a -G lpadmin sgo
$: command not found
