I think I saw some noise on some list that you need cupsys-bsd to be able to
My HP 3325 just worked out of the box using the latest hpijs driver and with
the following installed packages:
Also, if you have only 1 printer you may not need the -P option.
...well i had my time with printing on linux-distro's...
maybe this can work (if you did all that allready: i apologize)
just install cups with package manager: all packages (see: the list above my
text) I guess.
than go to .system . .printing manager. follow instructions and do not forget
settings. as far as i remember you must in the 'printingmanagerbox change to
'cups' as printing program (right side down). in my case it is as simple as
that: for my old hp 500c this works fine.
ps: installing cupsys-bsd i shut down the lpr && i like cups much more.
