Hi all. New to Arch here. I've previously been using Ubuntu (yes, I know). A great distro for a noob like myself, but I figured I would step up to the bigtime in an effort to learn Linux. So, please, be patient with me here.
I was previously using Gnome 2.10, so setting up my HP PSC 2110 was a cinch, accomplished through the Gnome GUI.
Now I'm using KDE in Arch and I'm trying to setup cups via the CLI. I visited the Wiki and followed the instructions there, however, I am having a problem. I'm getting an error when trying lpstat -p -d. It's telling me that the Arch module is not present?
I'm at work now, so forgive me if I don't remember verbatim what it told me, but it was something to the effect of /lib/Arch2.6./mod not present?
I'm assuming that I have to add something to the kernel? Cups is present and current (pacman -Sy cups etc). I also made sure that port 631 was uncommented in my conf file.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help you could give me...
Also, if it helps any, I tried configuring alsa as well and it gave me the same error...
what i needed to do
was make sure i had all modules needed installed
so go get pacman -S hwd lshwd
now run lsmod
run lshwd -a <loads all mods needed (make sure printer is on)
now compare the 2 lsmods
what was missing from 1st but is in 2nd put in /etc/rc.conf module section
now try to setup printer again
also run hwd -e & hwd -s
to see if all what it tells you is setup correctly
hope that helps
Thanks for the tips! I will try that tonight....
Well, I took your advice and ran the above commands...
lsmod gave me the following:
usbhid 45824 0
uhci_hcd 34576 0
usbcore 125560 5 ohci_hcd,ehci_hcd,usbhid,uhci_hcd
lshwd -a gave me the following:
001:006 USB Vendor Specific Class: Hewlett-Packard|PSC2100 (unknown)
I know I already ran pacman -S hpijs and that is the correct driver for the printer. I've also downloaded the PPD and moved it to /usr/share/cups/model/HP-PSC_2110-hpijs.ppd
When I modprobe usblp (as outlined in the Wiki), I get:
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.10-ARCH/modules.dep: No such file or directory
What gives? Any ideas?
