I installed 3 HP USB printers on a 11.1 box to access via samba. The first 2 work just fine.
The last one, an HP 2420d is recognized and installed. The problem is that after it is installed it can’t even print a text page. All I get is a communications error with no details at all.
It doesn’t matter which of the 3 listed drivers are used, or if I installed via cups, yast or the hplip utility. The result is the same. The printer does work as it was moved from a Windows box.
The install is fully updated. Yes, the printer is turned on.
