Then what?

+
Thigs are working now? i can go to my open-office click on print and my printer will be there? what was this all about?
+
 
+
And other think i dont want to know about "web interface", im with my printer right next to me!, i just want to use it on linux.
+
 
+
Web Interface should be separated from normal usb printers, this way is really confusing.

Well, i will try to read other manuals,

Sorry for my bad english, and for being irritated =P.

Kernel modules

The whole kernel modules section is confusing. Is it mandatory? What exactly should we do?
-- Drozzy (talk) 10:37, April 10, 2012

Print button greyed-out in GNOME print dialogs

As suggested by the Arch wiki, I used the

# HostNameLookups Double

option. However, that resulted in following error message: IP lookup failed - connection from localhost closed!

and I wasn't able to add printers via the CUPS web interface (internal server error)

It seems there is an outstanding bug with respect to the HostNameLookups: http://www.cups.org/str.php?L4070+Qversion:%20-feature

Removing the HostNameLookups double form the cups config file resolved my issue. Not sure why this used to solve instead of create problems.

Device node permissions

I got a problem after update of hplip / cups and foomatic. My printer not working anymore.

So I first check possible problems and read section Device node permissions. It's recommended to verify that permissions are 660. It was my case so I am looking to find another solution.

After a long time and read I was back to this section. I read also section below Device node permission troubleshooting. As my conf was with well permission I don't really read all carefully. It was the 3rd/4th time before I see the note about 666 permissions. I tried this and it's solved my problem.

So I think it would be great to make also a note on Device node permissions about 666. Because my conf look alright as writing in wiki, but in fact not.
