    Default printer config


    i have an HP photosmart c5500 printer. when i set it up there was no
    model c5500 to choose from in the configuration process. so i chose 7100
    as a guess. the printer seems to be working ok except when it's done
    printing something the light continues to flash for quite some time and
    the screen says 'now printing' even tho i'ts done. i installed CUPS and
    th 'hpij..' drivers, etc. is everything ok here or did i do something
    wrong? is there a 'c5500' model available? i am newbie and appreciate
    all help!!

    installed opensuse 11.0 on dell xps410 machine.

    p.s. anybody know why command 'lsusb' not available?

    Because you are not root?

    For your printer there should be a ppd file somewhere. Your printer is
    supported since hplib 2.8.7. See here
