My printer is a Deskjet 1660 and with Ubuntu 12.10 I began to use it. The only problem is when I tried to use the draft mode in order to save ink, the job cancels automatically. I don't know why. I need help.

Thanks

Here is one of the answers:

Hi,

Ubuntu 12.10 will be supported in our next release of HPLIP which migh happen in couple of weeks time or so.

As a temporary workaround, please 1)Download HPLIP-3.12.10a (e.g to ~/Downloads) 2)Open Terminal and go to ~/Downloads/hplip-3.12.10a 3)Open ~/Downloads/hplip-3.12.10a/installer/distros.dat and then replace "12.04" with "12.10" 4)./install.py (this will start the auto installer)

=> Reconfigure print queue with the commands in the terminal mentioned below.

=> system-config-printer (remove all print queues)

=> su -c "hp-plugin" (This will download right plugin)

=> hp-setup (It should not be run in a root mode. This command is adding print queue, make sure you select ppd name having "-ps" or "hpcups" substring)

=>Try printing now.

I followed the instructions of the installation site, I wrote in the terminal sh hplip-3.12.10a.run but the terminal says this can't be open, can you help me? –  user42912 Nov 12 '12 at 22:49
    
every 12.04 I see in this file I will replace to 12.10? –  user42912 Nov 13 '12 at 2:58
    
Most Likely Try it, but back up the file just in case. –  PyRulez Nov 13 '12 at 20:29
