Printer Hp photosmart freezes 7762! kubuntu


hpphotosmart7762

I have this sick bastard printer… and as you could image i have always used with windows but it’s not the best printer on the world…

i have read a *lots* of stuff on openprinting website… and  with the default fucking driver i got always a hp super fanstatic (of course it isn’t ) photosmart freezed ...

so i had taken a decision some days ago… i should buy another printer….

but … this was a failure

so i tried to change the driver …. without faith and i have choosen the photostupid c8100

and tadaaa no freeze… -.-” so i thought it was the driver…. but after some time (2 hours lol )i get the freeze… wthell….

so then i have read this

and i have modify the URI in this way:

FROM

hp:/usb/photosmart_7700_series?serial=MY396220QQK6

TO

usb://hp/photosmart%207700%20series?serial=MY396220QQK6

**NOTE %20 means——>”_”

using the system settings…you can see here
pinter

now it seems it works fine….

if the fucking module to control for your printer doesn’t work :

add the printer by browsing this

localhost:631

then add the print .

stop cups with this :

sudo /etc/init.d/cups stop

so now edit the configuration file

locate cups | grep conf

should show :

/etc/cups/printers.conf

so

kdesudo kate /etc/cups/printers.conf

now replace like said before the correct string…

usb://hp/photosmart%207700%20series?serial=MY396220QQK6

now set this printer like default with this :

lpoptions -d “hp_photosmart_7700_series”

note that name contains space but they are replaced by _ underscore …. wtf i really hate these stupid problems
