HP 7150 on RH 7.3 now not working after new hpijs

Post by Bill Fissel » Wed, 28 Aug 2002 10:10:55



Thanks in advance

based on the support reports at linuxprinting.org, I bought a

photosmart 7150. Works A-Ok under a certain popular OS.

I am using printtool (which is linked to printconf-gui) to configure,

and RH 7.3 seems to be using

LPRng (ls -l /usr/bin/lpr eventually leads to /usr/bin/lpr.LPRng)

I installed, printtool (which is actually printconf-gui) found the printer,

I called it a photosmart 1315 used hpijs driver and the test-page

looked nice. I printed from GIMP (then unaware of the gimp-print issue)

and it looked hosed--as in, way way way too pale.

I compiled and installed GS 7.05 and hpijs 1.2.1.

I reinstalled the printer, using hpijs driver. I could not find the

file noted int he README with hpijs-- to wit,

/usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/printerdb

to include the snippet that they say to include.

Anyway, now everything is broke. not even a test page prints.

less /proc/bus/usb/devices includes:

1. XF86Config file for HP OmniBook 7150

Hi

I have a HP OmniBook 7150 with ATI graphic card (LT PRO).

I have installed RedHat 6.1 in text mode and it works, but the screen does
not look very good.

1 inch in the right side of the screen looks very bad.

Any inputs on how I get this to work correctly or perhaps a working
XF86Config file for this machine. I have looked at the Linux laptop site,
but they "only" have for OmniBook 7100 which does not work for me. I still
have this 1" on the screen that does not look god...

thanks in advance


kind regards
Claus
