(Mine is a PhotoSmart 7180). According to the changelogs, support for the Photosmart C6100 series first appeared in hplip version 1.6.9. The latest version in the CentOS updates repository is 1.6.7. When I got my Photosmart C7180 I grabbed hplip-1.7.4a-3.fc6.i386.rpm from Fedora Core 6, and I've been running with that ever since. -- Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
