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.
Here is one of the answers:
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.
