HP Photosmart 7150 USB printing on RH 7.3 with LP/CUPS

Hello, All.
I am trying to print to my 7150 from a RH73 installation. I've installed CUPS and HPIJS 1.02. A lsusb does show the printer is attached (/dev/usb/lp0). I can't get any print from CUPS to it. Printing to my Laserjet 6P works fine (parallel). Info is attached.

TIA,
Karl

If common sense were sold at WalMart, would anyone notice?

Re: HP Photosmart 7150 USB printing on RH 7.3 with LP/CUPS

Info from http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/patchfix.php#rh7273

Redhat 7.2, 7.3 fix
Use the following instructions to update hpijs on RH7.2 and RH7.3. This will allow printconf-gui to recognize all the latest hpijs printer support.

1. Follow install instructions for hpijs and GNU Ghostscript at http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/install.php steps 1-5.

2. Download and extract the latest foomatic database at http://www.linuxprinting.org/download/foomatic/foomatic-2.0-current.tar.gz .

3. In the foomatic directory created from the tar ball, run the following commands. This will replace the RH foomatic database with the latest support for hpijs.

#./configure --prefix=/usr
# make foomatic-combo-xml
# rm -rf /usr/share/foomatic/db/source
# make data-generators
# make install-db
# cp foomatic-combo-xml /usr/bin/

4. Delete the following directories.

# rm -rf /var/cache/foomatic/*/*

5. Run printconf-gui and delete any old print queue(s) and then add them back with the new button.

The update is now complete and ready to print from the spooler.
