HP Deskjet 6840 Printer Problem
I am trying to get an HP Deskjet 6840 inkjet Printer to work with my
Debian 3.1 Sarge stable system.
I am trying to get it to work with lpr
The name of the printer I am calling is the same name as its host name
which is hp7efdfb, its local address is 126.96.36.199 I have it using port
9100 which is the same port as my HP Laserjet which does work.
The printcap file is
In /var/spool/lpd/lp/dj6840 the status file says
If I do the following command
lpadmin -p hp7efdfb -E -v socket://188.8.131.52:9100 -P
lpadmin: add-printer (set model) failed: client-error-not-found
My lpstat -t says
scheduler is running
system default destination: laser4v
device for hp7efdfb: socket://184.108.40.206
device for laser4v: socket://220.127.116.11:9100
hp7efdfb accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00
laser4v accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00
printer hp7efdfb is idle. enabled since Jan 01 00:00
printer laser4v is idle. enabled since Jan 01 00:00
When I try to print is doesn't print anything and I can see the files
build up in the queue for the printer.
Windows will print to the printer using the HP Driver that came with it
but it doesn't have a linux driver on the disc.
Does anyone have any idea on how I can get this printer to work or what
I am doing wrong? I would appreciate any help you can give me.
