Re: Dymo label printer

Sorry Brian, I failed to specify that I want graphical control not command line, and Lprint appears to be command line only. Is there anything suitable you are aware of? Cliff, I know little (i.e nothing!) about label printers because I do not have one. I advised lprint because it comes from the cr...

Re: Dymo label printer

Good day folks. I am considering the Dymo Labelwriter 450 but inevitably the software is only available for Windows or Mac. Does anybody know if it can be run from Linux Mint 19.2? https://www.dymo-label-printers.co.uk/dymo-labelwriter-printers/dymo-labelwriter-450-label-maker.html I'd advise insta...

Yes I have a working printer now, thank you! Good. Don't forget to edit the subject header to have [SOLVED]. So does cups-browsed have bugs in 20.1? Linux is usually famed for super easy printer installations. Thanks again! cups-browsed should indeed give super easy auto-setup. I have seen your iss...

Okay I've gone through these. Changing the URI brings up:

Code: Select all

lpadmin -p LASERJET400 -v "URI" -E -m everywhere lpadmin: Bad printer URI "URI".
You did not substiute for the URI as advised :(. You substitute what the driverless command gives you.

Re: HP printer and scanner issue

I am not keen on dealing with HPLIP, especially when the version is not the one supplied by Mint 20.1. Please give what you get for

Code: Select all

lsusb -v | grep -A 3 bInterfaceClass.*7
BTW, does the 1136 have only USB connectivity?

Re: LM20 HP Envy 4500 >>> 3 printers now !!!

Bottom line:

Anyone with a modern HP printer does not need HPLIP. HPLIP is provided for users who have legacy printers.

For quite some time now many printers work without any action on the users part, and also often will work without any drivers being installed. Open a terminal and use command driverless then show us the output you see; it might show your printer is detected already. hi. I did the above suggestion a...

thus, even on an WiFi based Printer,
you would still have to Install some Printer Drivers,
like I've done with my Epson XP-442 WiFi printer.
You might have done it but is was completely unnecessary. No vendor drivers are needed.

Success with the scanner, I have removed the Epson Imagescan software, and now commented out the escl entry in the dll.conf, and it goes straight into Xsane. Good. Less family confusion now :D.
