Have an HP f2200 with HPLIP & HPLIP-HPJIS drivers installed that came with 11.2 CD
This printer has been working flawlessly for me for many months. I had no problem getting it going. Plugged it in - loaded it up in Yast and it has worked ever since.
However, today I opened up the HP device manager to clean the cartridges. I clicked on the clean stage one option and the cartridge went through some motions but it did not load any paper like it was supposed to.
I didn’t think anything of it but when I tried to print something the queue manager status stayed as pending nothing ever printed. I palyed around a bit but coudn’t get anything to print.
In frustration, I deleted the printer in yast and tried reinstalling it from scratch. After detected and installed I tried to print a test page from yast. The system tray notifiction pops up and advised job sent to printer and then that job is completed. However, nothing printed. Checking print queue it shows as print stopped.
I click the OK window in Yast and it says /usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed
I thought it might be the printer so I plugged it into a windows computer but it worked without problem.
I tried changing cables and USB ports but did not help.
It seems something has become corrupted in a config file somewhere in Opensuse.
What would I need to do to remove all previous settings and start from scratch - as I never had any problem getting it to work previously?
Any help would be very much appreciated.
should mention that there is still communication with the printer as I can align cartridges using the HP config device.
