Thanks for the help gents, I've made progress.
mentioned in the linked page only has to be executed once. I found a Set As Default button on the CUPS printer page (http://localhost:631/printers/) and it executed the command for me... no console needed for that one.
|Code Sample |
|lpoptions -d printer-name|
To make GIMP 1.2 print correctly after this, the -o raw printing option needs to be changed to -o raster in GIMP's printing dialog page.
I haven't installed Open Office yet, will soon enough.
I think I'd need to append the hp path to be able to use any of those hp-xxx commands. I tried hp-info while pwd in it's directory, but it coughed up a polite error message about missing bits.
Also, it would be super helpful if the http://localhost:631 page were there. If only it hosted links to the sub-pages (admin, printers, jobs etc), it would make managing the printers a lot easier. I'll eventually write one up for myself, if you like, I can post it.
