HP Printer's Driver

Last Monday, on 30th August 2010, my friend came to my home with his new HP Laser printer, he don't know how to remove the stickers from inside. Like to add here, 1st time removing those stickers are no 'so easy', normally a 'normal person' has fear to do that alone. After that I have successfully removed those. Now, he requesting me to check if the printer is working properly or not. I have fedora 13 as default OS plus another open source linux. HP provides a printer's driver CD for windows.

On that moment I was unaware how to work with this on linux. Here goes the solution:


1. Online installation:

Go to: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html
Now, Click on Download HPLIB
this will take you to .
From this page select your distribution, for fedora:
Step1 :Select Distribution: Fedora
Step 2: Select Version: 12 (don't worry if you are using fedora 13)
Step 3: Select Printer Type:<select your printer type> (OfficeJet/ Deskjet/ LaserJet/...)
Step 4: Select Printer Model:<select your printer's model no.> (p1007/ 2100d /...)
After filling all the above click twice or thrice Next.
Now, Under the Topic "Installer Walkthrough"
Step 1:
Click on Download HPLIP to download the installer file in your HDD.
Now, follow all the guide lines given below on that page.


2. Offline installation:

Download these packages from outside source(for fedora 13):
* cups-devel (CUPS devel- Common Unix Printing System development files)
* libusb (libusb - USB library)
* libjpeg (libjpeg - JPEG library)
* libcrypto (libcrypto - OpenSSL cryptographic library)
* libnetsnmp-devel (libnetsnmp-devel - SNMP networking library development files)
* pyqt4-dbus (PyQt 4 DBus - DBus Support for PyQt4)
* pyqt4 (PyQt 4- Qt interface for Python (for Qt version 4.x))
* reportlab (Reportlab - PDF library for Python)
* dbus (DBus - Message bus system)
* sane-devel (SANE - Scanning library development files)
* pil (PIL - Python Imaging Library (required for commandline scanning with hp-scan))
* xsane (xsane - Graphical scanner frontend for SANE)
* cups-ddk (CUPS DDK - CUPS driver development kit)

Note: Updated package list for fedora 14:
* libjpeg-turbo in place of libjpeg
* libjpeg-turbo-devel
* openssl-devel
* net-snmp-devel
* libusb-devel
* python-devel
* xsane (xsane - Graphical scanner frontend for SANE)
* sane-backends-devel
* dbus-devel
* libtool
After successfully installation of all the above package send me a mail requesting for off-line package for HP printer's driver.
