Print to Mac-connected officejet d145 Windows
Authored by: rpalmeri on Jul 25, '03 12:44:23PM

Mac OS Jaguar (10.2) Windoz XP Home HP officejet d 145 USB

All went well with the install, but my HP officejet d 145 would not print. The HD on the Mac clicked right along, the printer showed up in WINDOZ, the CUPS on Internet Explorer showed the printer, and the print job as "processing", but no output!
I tried using the raw printer as noted by another user below, but still nothing printed.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Russ

If you installed the printer using the HP CD ROM, it installs the drivers along with a suite of software called "HP Director." This has a related service that runs and locks the USB port to only that software. Stopping the service called "HP Communications" will allow printing via CUPS. I had a script that I would run on startup to kill that ...

Try it ...
