HP 1102w Printer set up
Posted by: dseng ()

I've been trying to set up an HP 1102w printer in Lubuntu. For some reason when I get to the set up screen, I get "no devices found" in the HP setup GUI.

What should I do next? Thanks!

I don't run any HP proprietary software, including the "HP setup GUI".

From the INSTALL file:
HP SMART INSTALL NOTES
----------------------
    The printers HP LaserJet Pro P1102, HP LaserJet Pro CP1025, and simliar
    models have a virtual CD-ROM (a fake USB CD drive) in USB mode.  You can
    disable this three ways:

    Method 1:
        NOTE: this is a non-open-source method!
        - Connect the printer to a Windows PC and turn it on.
          The fake CD-ROM appears on Windows.
        - Insert the original Driver CD that ships with the printer
        - Run SIUtility.exe or SIUtility64.exe from the UTIL folder and
          COMPLETELY DISABLE THIS "HP SMART INSTALL" FEATURE.

    Method 2:
        - Install usb_modeswitch and usb_modeswitch-data from your distro's
          repository. I.E.:
            # yum install usb_modeswitch usb_modeswitch-data
          OR
            $ sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch-data
          OR
            Surf to: http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/
        - Power cycle the printer.

    Method 3:
        NOTE: this is a non-open-source method!
        - Execute:
            $ wget http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/smartinstall/\
                SmartInstallDisable-Tool.run
            $ sh SmartInstallDisable-Tool.run
