Just had a thought, perhaps the driver is 32bit only, and I am using the X64 version of Pardus...Doh
I don't expect that i686 and x86_64 doesn't have anything to do with this problem.

I also found this >http://www.cups.org/testppd.php< with "This form allows you to test a PPD file on-line using..."

And a .ppd file is an ASCII file and I have many of them in /usr/share/cups/model/ (just for comparison)
And http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostScript_Printer_Description

Great, I will try the ppd from the driver disk and see what comes up, thanks atoboo.

Have tested the ppd, and this is what comes up:

So I am not sure how to go now.

The new Ubuntu 11.04 are excellent for printers:
http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/04/ubuntu-11-04-gets-automatic-epson-driver-download/

I think the HP printers have a similar solution with Ubuntu 11.04, it detect and automatic install the drivers with some commands lines after you answer some questions. (A sort of terminal pops up when you connect or swith on the HP printer)

My HP LaserJet P1005 not work in Pardus 2011, but in Ubuntu 11.04 without any manuall install of any drivers:
http://www.openprinting.org/printer/HP/HP-LaserJet_P1005

I not find Pardus here:
http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install_wizard/index.html
Or here:
http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/index.html

So in this field Ubuntu are good. For my Pardus I use Samsung ML-1640 that work directly "out of the box"
But I wish Pardus could have the "Ubuntu solution" for printers to. Smiley

I did a bug report/request for HP printers:
# 18759

Edit.
This seems to be a issue in many HP printers:

HPLIP is in the repositories for Pardus, but as my printer isn't HP it won't help, although I installed it anyway in case I neesed to use a HP printer later

Maybe the only solution is to use Ubuntu with that printer? Anyway I hope you work it out. Smiley

Thanks john, I will keep trying to find a solution as I don't like the direction Ububtu is going, so am likely to stick with Pardus.

I think it actually runs a shell script that opens up a gui with mouse click selection of options.

Could you attach the .exe file in this topic so that I can have a look at it.
It's very strange to have a .exe file in Linux.
First compress it to one of the allowed zip, tar, tar.gz, tgz, tar.bz2 files.

And if it's working in Ubuntu, it should also work in Pardus.
Maybe there is a dependency missing.
