For printing support, it is recommended to use the new hpcups driver, which can be enabled with the hpcups USE flag. Finally you need to add a filtering printer that uses the new PPD, as explained in this howto. Note All users who need to manage printers – whether using the web interface or hp-setup – have to be a member of the lpadmin group. It can be used in tandem with either the oldish “hpijs” ghostscript device or the new “ijs” ghostscript device. The astute will have spotted the “pcl3” device, the “ijs” device, which is used by the hpijs ghostscript filter, and the “cups” device, which is used by the native CUPS filters, among the available devices. To be able to set up a network printer, the 1. Switch to Python 2 by using eselect python to fix this.

Retrieved from ” https: This appears to go against the main purpose of the USE flag function and inhibits a very long compilation on x86 platforms. We’re not going to use any of these: The page says that the type of the cdj driver is “Ghostscript”. Check the CUPS printer administration interface and make sure the printer is not in a paused state. Gentoo currently does not support the binary plugin.

Python 3 is set as the main python interpreter. This plugin must be installed in addition to the drivers. One more area to check when all of the above is set up correctly: This means you do not need to recompile ghostscript every time a new printer model comes out; you just update the external filter program.
Different PPDs that use foomatic-rip often require different ghostscript devices. For users who just need to print, no special privileges or group membership is required.
Your printer may also be supported by one of the ‘sample’ CUPS drivers included in the cups package. However, hp-setup tries to automatically install the plugin. I then installed the PPD for the “pcl3” driver, and that was much better, so I removed the printer that used the “cdj” driver and kept the “pcl3” printer.
However, very few driver distributions provide native CUPS filters, and the foomatic-rip trick comes in handy in many cases. You can put it in a subdirectory if you prefer.

Finally you need printsr add a filtering printer that uses the new PPD, as explained in this howto. This also makes testing the usb USE flag easier as one can simply switch between the two methods by either disabling the USE flag and loading the kernel module, or enabling the USE flag and unloading the kernel module via modprobe. After completing hp-setup it should allow for printing a test page.
Some devices have features that can only be used when a binary plugin is enabled. It also includes scanner and fax support as well as service tools for various multi-purpose peripherals.
If installing the plugin with hp-setup or hp-plugin fails, the plugin installer is available for download at the openprinting site. Native CUPS printer filters do not use any of the traditional ghostscript devices; they only use the special “cups” ghostscript device. If you installed the gimp-print-cups package, chances are that your printer is supported by it.
This means that you need to have the “cdj” device compiled into ghostscript if you want to use the cdj PPD. Although this is deprecated some printers may still need it to work properly. For printing support, it is recommended to use the new hpcups driver, which can be enabled with the hpcups USE flag. Every time after upgrading HPLIP it is advised to run hp-setup -r to remove all printers and configure them again as described above in the configuration section.
Package: printer-driver-hpijs (3.16.3+repack0-1)
If the module should be permanently disabled, it can be blacklisted to prevent automatic loading at boot time. I had to change some of the driver settings this is done through the “Configure Printer” option on the printers page in the CUPS web interface before I was able to successfully print a printr page.
The only “color mode” that worked with my black ink cartridge was “Floyd-Steinberg Gray”. Some background information about foomatic-rip, its use of traditional ghostscript devices, and how these differ from the special “cups” ghostscript device, can be found on this page. In addition, if I want to use a Foomatic PPD, the Foomatic PPD for hpijs for this printer was already installed by the hpijs-ppds package, so I can use the hpijs driver the recommended driver for this printer, as we shall see right away.
If preferred this driver can be enabled as module which will be called usblp.
