Sorry for the delay - I had to go out.
Last month the village had severe power problems, and my server's (CentOS)
~/.kde was completely trashed. It broke a lot of things, and I'm only still
finding and correcting them. However...
It seems that I got printing working through CUPS, but didn't get around to
re-installing hplip. I tried to, using the supplied version, but it did not
find the installed printer. I then tried the hplip-3.9.2.run - presumably
left over from the last install? Anyway, it flagged up a couple of
dependencies which I fixed, then got to libusb. Libusb is installed, but it
couldn't find it. And there I stuck.
I don't have time to do any more on this today, but I'll get back to you
if/when I get it sorted. I may have to ask a question on-list about why it
can't see the package (or is this another case of too early a version?). I'll
see what I can do.
FWIW, the version running on this Mandriva 2009 laptop is 2.8.7 - that gives
me all the print tools, but fails to find the scanner. My Fedora 10 netbook
has 2.8.12-6.fc10 - and works, including the scanner, both from the hp-toolbox
and from applications. I have a feeling that this 2.8.12 is the version that
I installed manually a long time ago, being the earliest that could support
the PhotoSmart 7180. Tomorrow I'll try to find the packages for that, and see
whether I can install that on the CentOS box.
New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature? Add it to UserBase
