    I'm pretty sure it's been done. How far have you gotten in trying to make it work, and what problems are you having?
    Situations arise because of the weather,

    Hi!

    It's not only possible, it should be really easy. I assume you're talking about the Deskjet 710 on the parallel port? I also take it you're talking about Debian stable (Woody)?

    An easy way to add a printer, is to open up a browser and type in localhost:631 in the addy bar. I did this on both Debian Woody, and Debian Sid. It'll ask you for a username and password. Type in 'root' as the name, and your root password. Then, go down to 'add a printer', and choose the type and port it's running on (i.e. deskjet on parallel 1)

    That's it!

    I had (no: have) similar problems with a HP Deskjet 710C. It uses some kind of propriety "this-is-supposed-to-be-nifty-but-really-its-just-a-pain-in-the-#ss" setup...

    but what do you know... looking around on google some, I just found this:

    http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_pr...-OfficeJet_710

    If that Officejet is your printer, it might proof helpful.

    I found some information for the HP deskjet 710C too:

    see, helping others is helping yourself!

    I would install cupsys and pnm2ppa with aptitude or apt-get install first.

    also download the .ppd file on www.linuxprinting.org

    then you can set it up with gui through for example KDE Control Center:Peripherals:Printers. Add printer and follow the wizard, be sure to choose your own driver (.ppd) when asked.
