HP officejet d135 unsuccessful
Authored by: mwy on Nov 03, '02 11:34:36PM

The process looked to be going ok, but after I added the HP officejet d135 as name "d135" and desc. "HPAIO" w/no location, the device option selected was "officejet d series", but that "automagically" has been changed to "usb" each time after I select "HP" or "raw" for the driver. I selected the option of "New deskjet series CUPS v1.1" and when I look at the printers page of the CUPS admin tool it looks fine with the same string outlined in the original post:<usb://Hewlett-Packard/officejet%20d%20series?serial=SGxxxxxxDYRQ>
I cannot print a test page, it shows as cancelled right after I submit it on the completed jobs page of the admin tool.

When I add the network printer on the win2k PC it looks good until it says that the server does not have a driver for the printer and "would I like to install one on the PC?" so I tried to do that using the HP install CD, and the latest download, and the correct driver files have been rejected by the process, I select the generic officejet driver that win2k wants to install and the print job submits to the OS-X 10.2.1 Mac. The Print Center app shows the new job in the queue with the message: "GenericClass: Waiting for device" The CUPS admin "completed job list" shows each submitted job as cancelled.

The lights are on, but no one is home. I poked around the file system, but made no changes other than what was outlined in the post. Os X is not the flavor of UNIX I am used to, so I figured I would ask the talented minds here on OSXhints.
I am sure the jobs are getting stuck because the print driver is not configured correctly (On either side!). The gui tools do not seem to offer the flexibility I need to match the correct print driver to the new queue on the Mac. I think the driver on the PC is less important as far as just printing is concerned.

Any ideas, or comments would be appreciated.

I have this exact same problem with an hp dekjet 1220c/ps. I cannot print a test page from the cups admin page to either the existing printer or the new one that I created following the directions. All the jobs that I print from the windows box show up in the job list as cancelled.

I suspect this is some sort of messed up permissions problem but I have no idea how to fix it.

Any help is appreciated.

I found on <>
an HP support document titled:
"HP All-in-One Product Family - USB Sharing Not Supported on a Macintosh"

HP d series officejets will connect via USB to a Mac., but will not share over a network. They do not support the USB Sharing function at this time although it may work with other HP printers. There's my answer.
Wish I would have found this document *before* I posted my question...

I've been able to share my d135 from my iMac to my wirelessly connected TiBook and my wired Pismo running 10.2.2. I have had problems with the HP AIO software on 10.2.2, so I'm using the drivers from HPIJS. Still sharing fine with these nice open source drivers.
