HP PSC 750

Note: HPoj docs /usr/share/doc/hpoj-0.8
I have the same and no problem with 8.1 and 8.2
8.2 recognise the printer and configure printer and scanner
for 8.1 do the following :
first make a node/s (if not present in /dev/usb/):
/dev/usb/mknod lp0 c 180 0
/dev/usb/mknod lp1 c 180 1
run 'ptal-init setup' (as root) and note the name of the prnter like
Use Control Center to configure printer and give as printer queue
/dev/ptal-printd/mlc_usb_PSC_750 on the place usqb0 is detected
Note: This printer queue did not work for me, but the next step did, the
nodes must be there though.
or add to /dev/ptal-start.conf:
# Added Fri Nov 16 18:28:07 CST 2001 by ptal-init setup:
ptal-mlcd usb:PSC_750 -device /dev/usb/lp* -devidmatch "MDL:PSC 750;"
ptal-printd mlc:usb:PSC_750 $PTAL_PRINTD_CMDLINE_APPEND
(Watch the wrap)
make a node (if not present in dev):
mknod /dev/usbscanner c 180 48
go to /etc/sane.d
open dll.conf and comment all but 'Hp'
edit hp.conf and add
after this is done rerun ptal-init setup (as root) and do what it says. If
you get a error make a node/s (if not present in dev):
/dev/mknod lp0 c 180 0
/dev/mknod lp1 c 180 1
Note: this last step overcame an error in running ptal-init setup for
me, but your YMMV.
You should now have an entry in the directory /dev/ptal-printd/ named
mlc_usb_PSC_750 and you should have two enties in /dev/ptal-mlcd/, one
named usb:probe and the other usb:PSC_750.
And thats all
Final note: These are my notes added to a post by Danny (see header and
thanks) to get my HP PCS_750 working in Mdk 8.2.
This worked for me.
