    Default HP Printer driver on Suse 11

    Just installed the retail version of Open suse 11.
    Couldnt find drivers for my printer HP Laserjet P3005dn.
    The former version Opensuse 10.3 do have a driver.
    How can I get the printer running, means where do I get drivers for it?

    Be aware that if you install the updated version 2.8.6 off hplip and hplip-hpijs all seems to be wel hplip keeps seeing your printer as long as you dont reboot.

    Problem: hplip/hpijs 2.8.6 rpm's from the download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/anubisg1
    This deletes the drivers from 2.8.4 and only the new drivers are installed.

    Solution: backup /usr/share/cups/model/manutacturer-PPDs/hplip
    Install hplip 2.8.6 rpms
    goto backup hplip
    open it cp * /usr/share/cups/model/manutacturer-PPDs/hplip
    then in usr/lib64/cups/filter rename foomatic-rip to foomatic-rip-hplib


    now run hp-setup and your printer should work

    openSUSE 11.0 is end of life since July 26th, 2010, so you will not find
    much support for it.

    If you are using the enterprise version, look at the out put from
    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    you should contact the SLES/SLED forums.

    If it is really an old openSUSE I would upgrade if I were you.
