[SOLVED] hp printer on slack12.2
upgrading to slack12.2 has resulted in a few unexpected headaches the last one of them is not being able to load any printer (using HP PSC1200 package) during the 'add printer class wizard' from the control center - now, i don't know if perhaps this is the right forum to ask about printer installation on Slackware, however I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar inconvenience and could share the solution - although, I've been using Slackware as my 'almost' main OS, i',m not a great file editor and therefore i would be grateful for any suggestions; this is the error msg that i get during the installation wizard:
Unable to load the requested driver:
/usr/share/cups/model/HP/hp-psc_1200_series-hpijs.ppd.gz(line 35): syntax error, unexpected ':'
i have also tied different driver files i.e. HP_PSC1100/1300/1400 all giving the same error msg, which makes me think that it's unlikely that all files have the same error line
thanks in advance for any suggestions.advice
