I just installed the foo2hp printer driver in SuSE linux 11.0
just folow the instructions in INSTALL at foo2zjs package.

make
./getweb 2600n
su password (root password)
make install


I rebooted my system just to be sure
I do also deleted any previous hlclj 2600n printer installed (again just to be sure)

I do also opened the CUPS printing system to keep track of what I? doing
but only to folow the proccess


1ST run YAST
open printers on hardware
Printer qeues will be highlighted
click on ADD button

Then pick network printer or local printer (network printer in my case)
click on PRINT DIRECTLY TO A NETWORK PRINTER and click NEXT

AT PRINTER TYPE CHOOSE direct tcp por printing and click next

Imput your printer IP number and click on TEST REMOTE SOCKET ACCESS
If you have a window telling you PRINT SERVER IS ACCESIBLE you're almost done

At queue Name and spooler sttingss name your printer with no spaces

example HPCLJ2600N as a name

Optionally hp Color Laser Jet 2600n as description
and in my case HOME as location
Uncheck DO LOCAL FILTERING
then click next.

You will be again at printers main window

************ NOW *****************

Go To your browser Cups Window
Click on MODIFY PRINTER at PRINTERS tab

You'll get a APPSOCKET/ JET DIRECT button then continue button
wirte down your IP as follows

socket://192.168.1.77:9100

Just replace your this IP for my IP and left the :9100 at the end with no spaces

In Make/Manufacturer for HLCLJ2600N window
scroll down to HP then click continue
At Model/Driver for HLCLJ2600N window

scrolldown for your hp model
and chhose the HP Color LaserJet 2600n Foomatic/foo2hp (recommended) (en)
*** you might have more than one ***
Then click modify Printer button
and that's it
By default printing is on black so you must change it to color

So now we must set printer options clicking the button for that

For my daily use it need to change this followings settings

PRINT QUALITY=DRAFT
COLOR MODE = COLOR
BITS PER PANE = 2 THIS WILL INCREASE THE OUTPUT QUALITY
ICM COLOR PROFILE = FILE HPCLH2600N-1.ICM (ICC FACTORY 1)
*** this set just worked fine for me otherwise change this setting after you get the printed test page

last click on set printer options button
And finally
You're ready to print a test page in color



I hope this step by step works for you
Vini.
