    Driver - HP Deskjet 5740 USB printer


    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
    HP Deskjet 5740 USB


    I'm installing the said printer on this server for printing with command lines. Since this is a server only few GUI/X packages/softwae have been installed. I only print occasionally.


    I'm aware the bundle of HP drivers are on hpijs/hplip which are available on Ubuntu repository. I only need the driver for the captioned printer and don't expect installing all drivers on repo.


    Please advise where I can download the driver for the said printer on Internet.


    TIA

    Hi asymptote,


    Thanks for your advice and URL


    $ apt-cache policy hpijs
    Code:
    hpijs:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 2.7.2+1.7.3-0ubuntu1.1
      Version table:
         2.7.2+1.7.3-0ubuntu1.1 0
            500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com feisty-updates/main Packages
            500 http://security.ubuntu.com feisty-security/main Packages
         2.7.2+1.7.3-0ubuntu1 0
            500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com feisty/main Packages
    the package "hpijs" is on Ubuntu repo. I haven't installed it because it is a bundle of drivers.


    I'm considering to install this package. After having the printer set up on CUPS remove it to see whether HP Deskjet 5740 can work or NOT.
