P1006+Mint (Debian) no print [solved. Firmware is NOT loaded]
I tried to follow the instructions, as well as the ones in INSTALL.
# uname -a
Linux comfort-desktop 2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 14:04:26 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
I did all of this:
# apt-get install build-essential tix foomatic-filters groff cupsys dc
$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ cd foo2zjs
$ ./getweb P1006
# make install install-hotplug cups
Unplug and re-plug the USB printer
$ firefox http://localhost:631
Create printers (Debian)
Connect with a web browser to:
And configure printer (HP example shown) to:
HP LaserJet 2600n, Foomatic + foo2zjs (en)
I do not have a choice for foo2zjs, only foo2xqx
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet P1006;CMD:ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet P1006;
Hewlett-Packard-HP-LaserJet-P1006 is ready
At very first I was getting "no firmware" in var/log/messages, now there are no complaints, but it doesn't seem to be working.
