  1. Yup. It all works...except for being able to print in color. And then I get to the part where I think I can change the cartridge settings to print color, it asks me for username and password, like everything else does. Well for whatever reason my username and password don't work for this. It says the password is wrong. It's not. Anyhow...printing is GO!
  2. Sorry. Yes, dmesg had no info that said any of my USB's are working. But now the USB IS working. It DOES come up in lsusb and dmesg. So NOW everything you suggested to me works correctly, just like you said it would. Thanks
  3. Also, if you're still willing to help me...how do I get my printer to print/copy in color? And can I even use the Scan feature on my printer? I can't figure those out. Thanks.
  4. Well the two terminal commands showed nothing. It basically is telling me still that nothing is recognized. Yes I did use the Mandriva One CD to install and I have the system-config-printer installed and that doesn't recognize the printer. The bug page above---I didn't really understand if it was telling me to do anything different. I'm clueless. Anything else? ...And thank you--big time. CORRECTION: IGNORE WHAT I JUST WROTE. IT WAS THE BLOODY CORD!! It works! So first step: always check the cords first. I appreciate all the help. At least I learned along the way. THANK YOU
  5. HPLIP is all downloaded and installed. I went to terminal, logged in as root, and typed in lsusb. This happened: [root@localhost joe]# lsusb Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 I tried plugging the printer usb cord into the other two ports, even turning it on and off again, and then typing lsusb in terminal and I got the same response. Then I tried my wireless mouse, and it works, and even came up after typing lsusb in terminal as active and recognized. So....what?
  6. I have a similar problem and can't find help anywhere. I have a HP PSC 1510xi All-in-One Printer(and copier/scanner) and I cannot get my laptop to recognize it. I have Mandriva 2009, everything is plugged in right, and I have tried the KDE Control Module, the websites above and every other website Linux suggests I go to, the application HP Device Manager, and the other various ways of trying to set up my printer. Perhaps I should be posting this elsewhere, but my USB (1 of 3) will not detect that anything is plugged into it. I've restarted the computer with the printer plugged in the port and turned on, and still nothing. Perhaps there is a way to manually make Mandriva/my laptop recognize the port? Any help is appreciated. Linux life has been so easy with Install & Remove Software until now. Thanks IM: liljoey129
