how to add HP laserjet printer on an embedded system?
« on: November 23, 2016, 01:17:53 am »
Hello every body. I'm developing an embedded system using cubieboard2. I Chose Linux as my operating system. To build a customized Linux I used BuildRoot project and generated uboot (as boot loader), Linux kernel and a Root filesystem that supports Qt. Now i wanna add a hp Laserjet 1102P printer to my embedded system, so I added cups (Common Unix Printing System) and Hplip packages to the BuildRoot and recompiled the project. Then I configured cups (setting listening port, setting SystemGroup and setting acceses) and install my printer driver on the board using a web browser (board_ip_address:631). now when i send a test print i get nothing!
can any body help me?

thanks.

Check /var/spool to see if anything going in there.

I'd also look at the usual /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages to see if anything in there.

Also look at standard troubleshooting stuff like
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems

Nothing really special because its a cubie, its standard linux..

I know this is an old thread, but for the benefit of anybody having problems with HP P1102, P1005, and all the other 'Winprinters'

Go to http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ identify your printer, download appropriate file and follow the instructions in the instruction file exactly.

If it works for you, consider making a donation to the developer (no connection to me).
