after settingup printer test page is empty [Solved]

Post by asy1410 » Tue May 07, 2013 14:58

Hi together,

I freshly installed Sabayon XFCE and want to setup my printer. Testpage is coming, but empty. The terminal says:

hp-setup

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.13.3)
Printer/Fax Setup Utility ver. 9.0

Copyright (c) 2001-13 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, LP
This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.
This is free software, and you are welcome to distribute it
under certain conditions. See COPYING file for more details.

Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 9: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated.
Found device: hp:/net/Officejet_7500_E910?ip=192.168.178.21

Done.

Any help would appreciated. I'm sorry not beeing able to help more

Thks

Artur

Did you configure it using the CUPS browser interface? If not, try doing it that way instead of using the HP Linux tools. Open a browser window and enter the address http://localhost:631/ and proceed from there.

I always use the CUPS browser interface to set up HP printers (there are a lot in the offices I work in), and I have never bothered to try the HP tools as CUPS Manager works fine.
