Installation of HP printers in Linux Mint 8 Helena

Postby jmro3006 » Sun Dec 06, 2009 12:19 pm

Why have all references to HP Photosmart printers been omitted from /usr/share/ppd/hplip/HP?
I had to install my printer by copying the ppd file from LM 7.posting.php?mode=post&f=49#

Do you mean /usr/share/ppd/hpijs/HP?

I go through a check-list with every new install of Mint so I'm not sure if it's there by default or if I have to install this package manually from synaptic : hpijs-ppds
