    printing in Linspire...

    Uggh, for a linux distro that's supposed to be "easy to use" it sure is a pain in the ass...

    my parents have purchased a new computer that came pre-loaded with Linspire 4.5 on it. After hooking up all the peripherals I went to the setup and supposedly setup all the peripherals. But the printer is being a total pain in the ass.

    I've tried several times to get the printer to print stuff out, but to no avail- it WON'T PRINT ANYTHING! I've removed and re-installed it, i've switched from CUPS to LPD and back and forth, it won't print anything.

    Linspire 4.5
    HP Deskjet 722c

    I've used linux for almost 2 years now and I've never been this frustrated with a flavor before...

    Any help would be appreciated!

    If you go to and you will find your not alone, it seems that model HP has problems in Winblows, Linux, and MAC.
    Research, research, research before you walk the plank.

    Have you tried GIMP-Print drivers for CUPS? The only two drivers I've gotten to work with CUPS and an HP model are GIMP-Print and Gutenprint.
