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
