I tried the wizard and looked at linuxprinting.org
. The wizard did not
see the usb printer only /dev/lp0 and ptal. I tried the instructions on
and went through the CUPS wizard but I do not know
what usb device the printer is attached to. How can I find out what
device it is?
I just had good results configuring a HP 3550 color laser printer by
downloading the HPLIPS drivers from Sourceforge. They work perfectly
while the HP stuff shipped with Fedora failed to work at all. Includes
a tool that will scan your USB and Network and report any printers
that it discovers.
No RPMS, but the source builds and installs perfectly under FC3.
