Do you still get error messages when you run

hp-setup?

@ NevilleGoddard

As far as I can remember yes. Let me tell you something I tried last night as well. I never could get the hp to find and add the printer. So, I went to the cups site. Tried different variations of adding the 5200 machine and then test printing. Each time test print would print out garbage and not wouldn't quit. So, I'd have to cancel the job. So decided to try to print a document from the documents folder. Same results. Garbage plus wouldn't quit printing even when I only chose one page to print and one copy. Wound up deleting the printer from cups there.

What I'm wondering is if I was to connect a cable to laptop and router if that would help it to see the printer or not and set it up as a usb printer that way. I do know that with one of the settings in Cups it did see that it was a usb and that it also supplied the IP address for the printer but each time it was complaining up a storm about not being able to pull in the ppd. So that's when I deleted, added, deleted, added and then finally just deleted to see what else might be tried for the system to pull it in itself first instead of falling back to going messing around on the cups site.

But that's the uptake of what I did last night before going to bed.

Thanks

I reinstalled the Ghostbsd. I also redid all the steps you had me do before. I'm getting the GUI to show in terminal. However, still am unable to 'find' any printers when telling ti to search through the three selections. Suold be the first selection since it is a usb/wireless printer. But nothing shows at all.

Turn off your computer, then turn on your printer then boot GhostBSD. Check the output while the computer starts to see if the printer is being detected. After getting to the desktop, open a terminal, login as root and run


dmesg -a

And see if your printer was detected. If it was then run

hp-setup and see if that works.

Good luck! I can't understand why the printer is not being detected

@NevilleGoddard

Ran the command. Showed a list of things. Funny. Didn't see printer but did see fax function not available.
Decided to run the hp-seup and got this:

Code: Select all


warning: No display found.
error: hp-setup requires GUI support (try running with --qt3). Also, try using interactive (-i) mode.
which is odd because I had that earlier in the root terminal. Very odd.
While running the first command I noticed that the hptools was installed. I just ran the hp device manager and wasn't getting anything to show etiher.

hp-setup --qt5
