Printer setup

Postby Lysar » Sun Jan 04, 2009 6:28 pm

Greetings, all, and happy new year!

I've used Elyssa for about a year and have recently upgraded to the KDE edition (I don't like GNOME). I'm having 2 problems that I did not have with the GNOME edition: my sound is only using the internal speaker (and it's LOUD) and my printer is not working. Both of these were setup automatically when I installed the GNOME edition, and I'm unable to get them working properly with KDE CE. I'm exploring if the sound is a hardware issue, but I know that the printer worked fine in GNOME and windoze.

Any help would be appreciated as I need to get this working before my wife's nursing school starts back up on 20 Jan.

I'm joining in on this thread because I'm having similar problems... My printer is detected from KDEPrint but will not print a test page. Also, when I attempt Print To PDF, I have an error stating: "/usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-pdf failed". In another thread, I read of the solution of just using Print to File... After printing, it comes up with some CUPS error (that flashes on the screen for just a moment) and then the file is never in the folder that I send it too.

Here's what I get when I do lspci:

I got the printer working using HPLIP Workshop, but my PDF problem is still persistent. Please Help!
