I have trouble with this printer shared from Windows 7 Pro. Win machine IP: 10.0.0.120 Printer URI smb://10.0.0.120/HP1102 Whenever I try to print over network I got this error: Bezczynna - /usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed. I tried installing HPLIP from here: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/laserjet/hp_laserjet_professional_p1102.html but it seems to doesnt work. HP-setup also doesn't support SAMBA.

hplip doesn't support samba but it does suggest that you should be able to add it through CUPS.

  1. Open the CUPS printing admin (http://localhost:631/admin/ or use the graphical version)
  2. Add a printer in the following format (see http://localhost:631/help/network.html):

    smb://host/printer
    

    Where host is the netbios name or IP of the Windows computer hosting the printer.

  3. It'll probably ask you for the right PPD and at that point you should be able to specify the right version from the hplip package. The interface usually manages to guess pretty close on its own.

HPLIP provide no PPD file. I wrote it... when I add printer like you say I should - in GUI - I cannot print because I get error message: Bezczynna - /usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed –  Fih Sep 3 '13 at 14:06

Answer to this was quite obvious... For Ubuntu 12.04 and printer HP Laser Jet Pro P1102 over network. You need to: download and install HPLIP http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/laserjet/hp_laserjet_professional_p1102.html Add in system settings -> printing add new printer. And when the "select drivers" dialog appear chose HP -> LaserJet Pro P1102 (not proffesional) the driver there is Foomatic/foo2zjs-z2 Thats it. Happy Printing...
