Printers :: HP Laserjet 3100 or 3150
Hello, I've installed 4.4.10 on an old 600MHz Celeron box (256MB RAM, 8 GB HD, etc). It's an amazing distro once all the install issues are worked out. This machine is being used mainly for internet access by a low income family and they (and I) are very grateful to the developers of DSL.
On to the problem at hand: I'm trying to install a printer and I can't get it to work. It's either an HP Laserjet 3100 or 3150. The printer is an AIO (All in One) but the family needs only the printing function. How do I install the printer correctly? It's connected to the Parallel port.
I see this family every 2 or 3 weeks, so I don't have the machine in front of me at the moment. They want the ability to print PDF files, simple web pages (email, recipes, etc).
Thanks for your help!
I did not realize that it was that complicated. I thought I could just "Add a printer" and pick a driver. When I tried that, none of the drivers worked. I guess it's time to look up CUPS.
