How to get the hp 1050 printer working in joli OS 1.2

Here is the way to get the hp 1050 All-in-One j410 printer working in your Joli OS:

1: From your Browser go to: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html

Select: Download HPLIP and type in the info asked by the program (printer type etc.)
Step 1: Select Distribution: Ubuntu
Step 2: Select Version: 10.04
Step 3: Select Printer Type: Deskjet All-in-One
Step 4: Select Printer Model: HP Deskjet 1050 j410 All-in-One Printer

It will eventually get you to this file: hplip-3.11.1.run

2: Download the file to your downloads folder: hplip-3.11.1.run (there may be a newer version to download, it's always being updated)

3: Just before you download, they show a 'Terminal' and the command to use to install the HPLIP file on your system... Follow It As They Describe For The Command'.

4: I just opted for the 'AUTOMATIC INSTALL' once the Terminal asked!

5: Takes about 10 - 15 minutes (depending on your system)

If printer does not print after doing all the above, do the below:

6: After HPLIP is completly installed: Go to
A; Local Settings
B: Other Settings
In the HARDWARE Section select= Printing and add the printer to items listed there I don't remember the exact things I did there, one was 'make it the default printer' I'm sure if you play with each setting, you'll find the one(s) that makes the printer work. Keep playing until you get it to print out the test page.

The 1050 should work and is very fast! The HPLIP file also installs the 'SCANNER' for your printer and in your 'Local Apps Folder' you can use the Xsane program to scan with, that workes nice and is fast also.
