Hi, do I need an additional driver for my hp600 printer?
The drivers from DSL do not seem to work.
i configured the printer with "apsfilter".
The generic asci driver works but with errors. It prints only one line of the test-page und it pulls unlimited sheets of paper until i shut down the printer.
I changed to lpt (I think /dev/lp0), to A4, 300dpi, gray, auto and gave it a name (lp). I tried it several times so there are more than names listed (the others are aps, aps1 ...).
May I delete the other names as aps1, aps2...?
Should I use another driver? There is one. It is called HPIJS from www.LinuxPrinting.org (I do not need colours and 300dpi would be fine).
Can I use another config tool like "CUPS"? I heard this should work well.
