‘airscan’ is another package that I was directed to install. The scanning doesn’t have a specialized page, so I put it there for the future reference so I don’t need to write again, again and again the same steps for everyone who has problems with scanners. The frontend ‘libimage-sane-perl’ will recognize the scanner and scan a few pages . Then now I know the scanner only devices have IPP over USB feature too, good to know. I’m getting a feeling you dismiss the driverless solution just because it doesn’t have a driver, so it cannot be an alternative for the full fledged scanning. I wasn’t asking a question here, I just stated the facts – ‘hp-setup’ will never work for your device, because it’s not what hp-setup is meant for.

We also describe how to keep your preferences and settings for all of you Linux applications after an OS upgrade and after a nuke and pave. We start with a critical voice mail from Lester. We also have comments on our review of Linux Mint, discussions of Lexmark’s lack of support for its printers on Linux, how to provide remote support, increasing swap and boot partitions and more. We hear from George about Windows and printers. Roger and Gord also comment on printers. Many questions as always, and a report of problems installing the Software Center.

Starting Up

Move, as prompted, by the screen; choose your OS and its version. How to install a driver manually? You can also display Complete List of Software. Then all the available drivers and Lexmark Utilities for your Lexmark printer will show up. Then the Recommended Driver will pop up.

  • Later they released a 32 bit version of AutoSketch, but it was useless.
  • Wait for the driver installation to complete and restart your computer to apply the changes.
  • • If you want Travel Print to update the printer model…
  • CUPS, by the way, stands for Common Unix Printing System.

Eclipse is rather hard, as it’s a framework for plugins, rather than a full out-of-the-box IDE. But see above for other great open source IDEs that are just as good or not better than VisualStudio. It has improved, but doesn’t come close drivers to Linux, BSD, MacOSX, or Solaris. MS has Windows/Office for everyday users, and superior VStudio/MSDN for developers. There is a similarly worded post in the Xen replies.

Common Driver Update Issues

In the case of Hewlett Packard printers, PCL 6 denotes V3, whereas PCL-6 denotes V4. You may have to deploy the drivers on a test virtual machine in order to determine exactly what printer driver you have. Once you’ve reached the firmware update screen, you will need to download the previous version of the firmware from the printer manufacturer’s website. Follow the instructions on your computer to complete the installation of the selected firmware. Unfortunately, the printer driver is unavailable error might appear if you’ve recently updated your driver. Not every printer driver is compatible or bug-free.
