Hi

I've got an HP k80 officejet printer which works fine in Ubuntu and XP (and I've just tried a live session of Fedora KDE) but in Pardus 2009 I can only print in black and white.

I've tried installing HLIP, I've checked that the ouput mode is set to "color" but still only B&W is possible.  Printing test pages has the same result.

It prints perfectly otherwise!

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I've tried installing HLIP

Hello andyb,

did you install the package foomatic-db-hpijs too?  Wink

Hello andyb,

perhaps this can help you and try to configure your printer by this way:  Wink

Hmm..  I've had a look at their troubleshooting pages, FAQs, bugs etc.

I've also reinstalled HPLIP and HPIJS, but with no success.  I suppose it might be a problem with the HP driver, or the Pardus package (I had no problem with Pardus 2008, by the way)?

I shall continue to investigate.

Thanks!

Hello andyb,

if all else fails, then you should write a Bug  Wink

Now solved, by installing this: http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus-2009-test/hplip-3.9.8-37-5.pisi

and reinstalling the printer.

Thanks!
