    Congrats on getting the printing to work, I have an All-in-one 5510 Officejet that I was gifted. As far as I know, hpoj is old and unsupported now. You might want to take a look at HPLIP instead, which is created by HP.
    HPLIP or you can install it using your system package manager. I haven't gotten my Wireless printing to work yet since I have the printer hooked up to my Linux box, but I'm sure you will figure it out if you keep working at it.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Thanks for the comeback. I had it working (wired), and as i contiued working at it to get the wireless printing going, I lost the wire (laughing) I'll get it back, somehow. This is an old toshiba lappy I have MEPIS 6.5 on. It picked up the wireless network almost automaticly. Very cool. I had HPLIP, but could get nothing from it..I installed HPOJ and then bingo...it all came together. I was advised to do /etc/init.d/hpoj setup and it all worked from there.

    hi Lordshooter....I tried the hplip with no result, Ithen installed hopj, did /etc/init.d/hopj setup...went through a whole bunch of question and answers..then went to the hplip toolbox, and it all came together...I dont remember the details, but I can now print with a cable, ..no wirless ..sigh..but I can at last print. I think I am becoming a OS slut. I mostly use Debain, have XP for a few things, now MEPIS on and old lappy. As soon as I can afford a video card for another old computer I will try to load it with at least 6 other distros.....keeps my old brain from solidifying....between my bicyclig LOL....thanks for your comeback and your suggestions..it helped a great deal
