Installing a shared printer

Postby mjrwingnut on Thu Jan 01, 2009 8:16 pm

I have a HP Photosmart 3200xi printer connected to my router. I just installed hplip-2.8.12. I can't get Mint to see the printer. I tried setting the ip address and everything. I have gotten this to work in Kubuntu before but never tried it with a gnome desktop.

Has anyone gotten it to work

I got it to work. Here is what you do.

First download HPLip drivers on to your home directory

Applications: Adminstration: Printing, then you click on the server pulldown and select new printer

Now to click on appsocket/HP Directjet, then type in the IP address

At this step you select the correct drivers from the HPLip directory on your home driver.

and it should work after that.
