HP Color Laserjet 2600n.

I am new to SUSE 11.1. I have the above printer on a network(other machines XP) with static IP.
It does have a driver foo2hp from Printer Settings for SUSE 11.0.
However I have found the instructions mystifying. Attempts to use the command line instructions fail (from a terminal)and none of the installation appears to apply to version of YAST with SUSE 11.1
It appears that the printer is not in the database (in YAST) so how do I add it and pretty much do a configured install??
There are earlier posts but they do not seem relevant to 11.1 and as a newbie I am lost.
Help appreciated.

Are you using hplip?

Check hplip site HP Linux Imaging and Printing for supported printers under linux. It’s listed as supported in 11.1.

firstly the printer:

OpenPrinting is a very good source of information; it confirms your printer driver advice

OpenPrinting database - Printer: HP Color LaserJet 2600n

but you may find else useful;

for the network, would any of this

Linux Printer Sharing: Suse/openSUSE 10.x 11.x IPP Print Server for Linux & Windows Clients

by swerdna be of use to you?

you would appear to many to have jumped in “at the deep end” by wanting to configure a printer on a network, but see how the reading goes, and get back to the forum as you need further help

Got this up and running !! As a newbie I didn’t think it was too ambitious and lots of help from this group.
Did have to learn and understand about root directory, su and sudo.
and current directory. I used foo2hp: a linux printer driver for ZJS protocol (e.g. HP Color LaserJet 1600/2600n, CP1215).
However for a newbie there are catches. Installation under SUSE 11.1 does not require any deviation from scripts shown and the INSTALL notes can be misleading as you may be led into thinking it is necessary to install GCC.
The interesting bit was working under yast2 getting the driver unpacked installed compliled and then playing to get the defaults I went for color and a4 set up.
I’d just like to say thanks for the pointers and help.
