When you want to build something by using make, etc. you should install make, etc. first. Use YaST and install at least make, gcc. When it is a kernel module you try to generate you need kernel-source.
Friends, I have just bought this device and tried to make it work on OpenSUSE 11.2 and 11.0.
On 11.0 it works fine with HPLIP(there are proper drivers) and everything is fine.
The printer is not detected properly via USB, so simple USB setup fails.
On 11.2 the system autodetects the printer and sets it up, but the setup is broken.
It detects both USB and HPLIP connection, but when I start printing (with a proper driver) CUPS webinterface says “/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip-hplip failed” (for HPLIP), the printer stops then.
What is wrong here?
I have homeserver with OS 11.0, where the printer works with HPLIP
On the client PCs there is OS 11.2, and the printer doesn’t work on it.
I want to print over network.
And to prove that this scheme works, I have another printer HP photosmart C5283 working perfectly and had Samsung ML1520 working, until it broke down.
The problem is obviously in OS 11.2 support. I’ve made several tests, and found out that the printer perfectly works as local printer from 11.0 and as network printer from Vista… But it doesn’t work from 11.2: neither as local USB printer, nor as network printer, with old and new ppd’s.
Beware. This link offers a windows/linux driver that is an .exe windows executable. The download link seem to be masked (hovering over shows a html page, not the actual .exe file). I don’t think this is a safe download for windows users, and it certainly is not for linux.
