Thanks for the links malcomlewis!
I bought the unit today, will arrive Monday sometime.
I read through the install pages and I suppose I will lose a lot more of my hair getting it set up on a desktop with USB and 2 laptops with WiFi.
Connect the decive over USB.
su -c hp-setup
Pick the first option, it will add the USB printer queue
You can now share this printer over the network using YaST, or, connect it to over USB on a WiFi client, and install and run the same install and program, but pick option 3, setup the printer’s IP. On the second ditto, except choosing option 2, Advanced, enter the IP just set on the device. Then reconnect it back to the desktop machine.
Thanks, I believe the available package will be a better start place for me.
Incidentally, is the version you are adding to your repo hplip-3.19.5?
And where is your repo? I looked at the links in your signature, but couldn’t find a repository. What else does it contain? Asked the curious cat?
Got’er done FINALLY! but it was a PITA having to deal with HP to get the IP address of the wireless radio in the printer to my router. And since HP doesn’t ‘really’ do Linux.
I had to put up with a very long phone call and lot of work on a Windows only machine to get it!
I was having all kinds of frustration, and then come to find out the wireless icon on the printer panel was blinking! Which meant NO SIGNAL!
Beginning to think I should have paid more the Brother MFP unit!
But after all said and done, it is was a matter of a minute or two to set things up on the laptops for wireless printing.
