Hi again,

I just bought a HP all-in-one Photosmart C5280 printer, and (again) runs well on XP and Vista. The jack is an USB one, but in the System > Administration > Printing and Add Printer, there's no USB option.

Also, when I try to install hplip, at the end of the install it says some dependencies are missing, and I can't find 'em anywhere. But yum says it's already installed. Strange, oh well.

Any help would be nice.

Please post the full output of "yum repolist" and "yum install hplip". Does "/sbin/lsusb" show the printer when it's connected and switched on?

Ok, something weird here:

yum repolist:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
repo id repo name status
adobe-linux-i386 Adobe Systems Incorporated enabled
fedora Fedora 7 - x86_64 enabled
kagesenshi KageSenshi Package Repository enabled
updates Fedora 7 - x86_64 - Updates enabled

--------------

Yum install hplip

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
http://devel.foss.org.my/%7Ekagesenshi/repo/pub/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error >
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: kagesenshi

----------

I really need this working, because I have 3 computers on my house and I'm the "server" one. If I can't make this work I'll have to use XP :(

WAIT!

I forgot to turn it on, and now when I see it, it's there! I think I'll have a problem with networking now. Wait a sec.

(Sorry for triple post)

Ok. It prints fine. Now I have two problems:

-How do I scan
-And how can I make the other computers (Vista and XP) see it and send files to print?

-How do I scan
Install the libsane-hpaio package (if not already installed) and use any scanning software (gnomescan, kooka, GIMP, OpenOffice, ...)

And how can I make the other computers (Vista and XP) see it and send files to print?
Install samba and set up printer sharing (http://us4.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/classicalprinting.html), or share the printer in the system-config-printer tool and configure it as an IPP printer in the Windows clients. In both cases, remember to open the appropriate ports in the Fedora firewall.

Where can I download it?
I can't install Samba, but how to you share it in system-config-printer tool?


I don't know why, but I can't download any packages from yum :(

What's the error message? You need to fix that problem first.
