purpose of hpssd

What is the purpose of hpssd?  It seems that some commands, such as
hp-info, will start hpssd and leave it running.  Is that intentional?
Should that be running as the user who invoked (e.g.) hp-info, or is it
meant to be system-wide?

Thanks,
Tim.

Cannot print to new HP Officejet 5610xi from linux

Hello,

Hoping someone can help me here.  I am running an older version of Xandros Linux.  I have the Officejet but cannot print.  I have installed everything but cannot print.  Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

Printing from windows to CUPS server with HP Photosmart C3100 series driver

Hello,
I have linux (ubuntu) box with HP Photosmart C3100 and CUPS server. I
tried printing from MS windows (Media Center Edition - it's like XP, I
guess) via IPP (http://host/printers/printer). But it didn't work with
"generic - MS Imagesetter" nor with "HP - HP photosmart 3100".
Moreover, "add printer" dialog froze after selecting driver. In cups'
error_log I could see these messages (debug level) repeating every 2
seconds:

D [18/Oct/2007:20:40:37 +0200] cupsdReadClient: 7 POST
/printers/HPc3100 HTTP/1.1
D [18/Oct/2007:20:40:37 +0200] cupsdAuthorize: No authentication data provided.
D [18/Oct/2007:20:40:37 +0200] Get-Printer-Attributes
http://minerva:631/printers/HPc3100
D [18/Oct/2007:20:40:37 +0200] cupsdProcessIPPRequest: 7 status_code=0
(successful-ok)

after stopping "Print spooler" in windows, "add printer" dialog
unfroze and I could go on with adding printer.

Printing from another cups client to this cups server (same printer)
works fine, printing from same windows client to another printer on
same cups server works fine as well! That's why I think it's a problem
in hplip.

distro: ubuntu gutsy gibbon (beta)
printer: HP Photosmart C3110
Printer Driver: HP PhotoSmart C3100 Foomatic/hpijs (recommended)
Device URI: hp:/usb/Photosmart_C3100_series?serial=CN6C6C52Q304P9
But I found similar problems with different photosmart printers, when
googling for solution.

workaround:
*remove all relevant printers in windows client
*reset print spooler
*create new "proxy" printer in cups (set address
http://localhost:631/printers/HPc3100), and driver generic - generate
pdf
*in windows add this "proxy" printer (with MS Imagesetter driver)

hplip-2.7.9 install

Attached is an update of the installation notes of hplip on Linux From 
Scratch/Beyond Linux From Scratch, this time for the 2.7.9 release. The 
notes presently in the Hplip documentation need to be replaced by this. 
Judging from some of the Help-cries I have read, this may be of some use.

Keep up the good work!

Niko Sauer
Installation of hplip-2.7.9 on Linux From Scratch and Beyond

This document describes the installation of hplip-1.7.1 on a Linux
from Scratch (LFS)/Beyond Linux from Scratch (BLFS) setup. We have
OfficeJet usb printers in mind. Printing and scanning was found to
work well on the HP-OfficeJet 5510 all-in-one.

Some system components of the LFS/BLFS build on which this experience
is based are: gcc-4.0.3; glibc-2.3.6; udev-088; Linux-2.6.16.5;
python-2.4.3; libusb-0.1.12; usbutils-0.72; xfree86-4.5.0; gimp-2.2.10; 
cups-1.1.23; ESP_Ghostscript-8.15.1; sane-1.0.18; xsane-0.994; 
foomatic-3.1.0.

The procedure installs hplip /usr.

It is assumed that

        (i) all the system requirements for the building of hplip are
            met. In particular, CUPS should be working on its own;

        (ii) hplip-2.7.9.tar.gz has been untarred into a directory we
             shall call "Build";

        (iii) you are now in Build.

The various steps are described below.

First as an unprivileged user:
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
$ cd hplip-2.7.9
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-pp-build --enable-foomatic-ppd-install
$ make

Configuration notes: 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 
--disable-pp-build: if your printers do not connect to the parallel
  port.

--enable-foomatic-ppd-install: if you wish to use foomatic-ppd-files. At
  the moment this database covers a larger variety of HP-printers. 

You should add: --disable-network-build if you do not have net-snmp installed.

Next, as root:
^^^^^^^^^^^^^
# make install

Find the foomatic filter script  "foomatic-rip" wherever it was installed. 
If it is not installed, download  from

<http://www.openprinting.org/download/foomatic/foomatic-filters-3.0-20071012.tar.gz> 

and do

# cp foomatic-rip /usr/lib/cups/filter/

Now

# cd /usr/share/cups/model/
# ln -s /usr/share/ppd/HP/* foomatic-ppds

Edit the file /etc/udev/rules.d/25-lfs.rules:

i) Add the following rule (from SUSE) as a single line to the very top:

  SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'K=%k; K=$${K#usbdev}; printf bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i
$${K%%%%.*} $${K#*.}'", NAME="%c", MODE="0644"

ii) Comment out the rules

       KERNEL=="lp[0-9]*",      GROUP="lp"
       BUS=="usb", KERNEL=="lp[0-9]*", NAME="usb/%k", GROUP="lp"

    by inserting a hash (#) in front of them

iii) Make sure that your HP-device is plugged in and turned on. Run the
     following script to stop the udev-daemon:

        # T=`pidof -x udevd`; kill $T

     Then start the udev-daemon again by running

        # /etc/rc.d/init.d/udev start

     When udev is started, run

        # lsusb

     and see if your device has been detected. If "lsusb" is not
     available (it is part of "usbutils") you could also do

        # ls /dev/bus/usb/00*

     If there is something, your device is seen correctly for the
     purposes of hplip.

Explanations
^^^^^^^^^^^^
CUPS has to see the foomatic filter. That is why it has to be
copied, or symbolically linked, into the file /usr/lib/cups/filter/
If this is not done, printing with CUPS will not be possible.

CUPS will look for the Foomatic ppd's in /usr/share/cups/model/
If the symbolic link is not made you will be unable to configure your
printer.

The addition of the SUSE-rule in /ets/udev/rules.d/25-lfs.rules will set
up your usb devices properly for hplip. It is important for this rule to
be at the top of the list. The rules you comment out will be redundant.

Before your system can implement the changes in udev-rules, it is
necessary to re-start udev by running the scripts as indicated.

You may now follow the hplip documentation to set up the program.

Hopefully some of this is of value to users of other Linux distributions as
well.

Re: Strange quality using hpaio sane backend with a C4180


 <at> Dirk:
Thanks, I'll check out Median filters to see how they work out.

 <at> All:
Meanwhile, I've did some post-processing tests in GIMP and found out
that a sequence of "Despeckle" and "Blur" work wonders!

Since this might be an issue for more than just the C4180 scanners, I
will post my results on the web - and maybe be able to provide some
script for automatically running scans through the GIMP for
post-processing. What do you think?

Although I totally agree to keep the post-procesing and the scanning
backend separate, I  still think that a lot of users would be happy with
a "ready to use" image immediately after scanning.    : )

Yours,
Pb

invalid Dot4ReverseReply packet size

Hi,

A Fedora user is getting no luck using their parallel port HP LaserJet
4000 with HPLIP:

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=249191

They've tried 1.7.4a, 2.7.6 and 2.7.7, all with the same error messages
when trying to print a job:

Sep 21 16:47:10 banach parport0: io/hpmud/dot4.c 243: invalid
Dot4ReverseReply packet size: size=8224, buf=8192
Sep 21 16:47:10 banach parport0: io/hpmud/dot4.c 330: invalid DOT4InitReply: cmd=0, result=20#012, revision=0
Sep 21 16:47:10 banach parport0: INFO: open print channel failed; will retry in 30 seconds...

Sep 21 16:47:40 banach parport0: INFO: open print channel failed; will retry in 30 seconds...

Could it be that the HPMUD_BUFFER_SIZE just needs to be larger?

Tim.
