RE: Rép. : [K12OSN] printers



One printer is an HPLJ3200. The other printer is an HPDeskJet6940 which is not in the list of printer drivers in cups.
HP directs me to a site with a file called HPLIP. HPLIP is not currently installed on the server thus I know my driver list is not from that. If I upgrade cups, will that give me an updated driver list?

Try here:
http://www.cups.org/ppd.php
 
P.S. if you cannot find your printer driver, check out the manual, they may be compatible with other printers like HP laserjets series.
What is the make/model of your printer?

I could not see an option to update drivers or include drivers for non listed printers. Is there a way to do this?

http://localhost:631/

that puts you into the CUPS administration page for managing printers 
and jobs.
