I have a HP Deskjet-1000-J110 series, and I really don't want to have to install Windoze just for this (or for any other reason, for that matter ) Thanks....

    Most HP printers you type its IP address into your web browser and get to an Printer Admin page.

    If the printer is networked, then docbop is correct. If it is a USB device, then you may try to install the HP printer tools in Wine. If so, then you should probably install winetricks first since that tweaks Wine so it can run more Windows applications than a straight installation.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Thanks I've only used/worked on network printer so I forget about local attached.

    If it is usb attached and the system is running in a virtual machine, then resetreset will need to enable USB pass-through in the virtual machine manager so the virtual machine can directly control the USB port. If not, then he can just ignore this...

    Yes, it is USB. Thanks for your help Rubberman

    What exactly is "winetricks"?

    Thanks yancek - you answered it for me. It is a shell script that installs/updates/modifies some stuff so that Wine works better with some applications. I needed to use it to use the latest versions of Sparx Enterprise Architect (a professional UML modeling tool) on RHEL 6.x and related systems. I'm not sure exactly what it does, but it definitely helps!

    Of course, there are no guarantees here that it will work for your needs... Let's hope so, in any case.
