Re: Mint 19 - HP281MFP - not so solved - more issues.....

hi badger; seems to me strange that your MFP is not reported with lpinfo; eg on our system, for our Officejet, it says network dnssd://HP%20OfficeJet amongst other things. I don't have a systematic way to sort all this: various other folks have suggested plugging an HP in via usb cable; that seems t...

Ubuntu is really changing a lot of stuff it seems; so folks get cutting edge; and there must be the inevitable stumbles with things; other folks stay with Debian; (instead of for example .. Ubuntu or Mint ...)Debian is seemingly renowned for stability; and it is said it takes them ages to get out a ...

Re: Mint 19 - HP281MFP - not so solved - more issues.....

this must all be very frustrating; but can you print reliably now? We have an officejet: its entry in MAKE & MODEL says HP Officejet 4650 Series, hpcups 3.16.3 as we have Mint 18; the hpcups to me means it is using hplip; if so, I would have thought the entry in MAKE & MODEL needs to say hpcups to k...

Epson WF7720 Printer: try the Epson drivers

welcome to the forums; should I assume you are using Mint; and would that be Mint 19? I ask because 19 has airprint-support; so theoretically this device will be autoset up by Mint; how about you try installing the drivers that Epson supply?

Re: Canon wifi printer lacks drivers on mint

sorry to hear of your problems; Mint 19 introduced airprint support; the hope was Mint would then set up all airprint compatible printers automatically; I get the sense it is not all as sparkling as one might hope .. so I am thinking the one that is not good; is airprint; (also called driverless ..)...
