Print to HP 940c
Authored by: mgalke on Jan 22, '04 04:26:49PM

Hey Hoosier,
I followed all your instructions to the letter (great post by the way) but unfortunately, it doesn't work for my printer, an HP Photosmart 7550, which is disconcerting because it's a relatively new printer on their (HP) product line. Basically, the job makes it from the Win box to the print queue on the iMac, but then it just sites there and says, "GenericClass - Waiting for Device". A few things I've done already:

1) I got to step 11 in your post, but my "model/driver" doesn't show up in the list.
2) I then tried to use "raw" and "raw-queue" as suggested in one of the replies to your post. No joy.
3) I downloaded and installed the Gimp Print drivers for my HP (actually, even Gimp doesnt' make a Gimp compatible driver for my Photosmart 7550, but on Sourceforge.net's site, they have a driver compatilbility chart, and I selected those drivers instead (HP Deskjet 550c drivers, also HP Deskjet 900 Series drivers). Still no joy.

No matter what I do, the job DOES go to the queue on the Mac that has printer sharing enabled, but that's all... it just sits there w/ that message of "GenericClass -Waiting for Device".
Any ideas Bro??? This is really driving me crazy, and I've used up all of my resources. I'm completely stumpted!!

Thanks, Mike

Environment:
Mac = iMac flat panel 800 w/ 768 MB ram, with Printer Sharing enabled. HP Photosmart 7550 is patched into this Mac via USB, directly into ISB port.

Windows box = Acer Laptop / 16 GHz, 260 MB ram. This machine is brand new.

Thanks,
Mike

Ditto to everything you said - especially the quality of the instruction post.

If it helps any I get the exact same result - however once I log out of my iMac the jobs do print to the secondary "printer" that I setup via CUPS.

Very similar setup - iMac 17" with an HP7350 USB Printer -
Trying to print from a Dell Insprion 2650 laptop

Let me know if this helps - or if you have a solution. Thanks.
