Description philippe.roubach 2012-08-12 23:02:40 MSD
Description of problem:

switch on the printer
system asks to you if you want to install some packets
answer "ok"
the install runs
at the end you have a notification for printing a test page
that's finished

go to drakprinter
go to the properties of the printer
you see the driver is "hp-1220,pcl3, hpcups"

this is the wrong driver

my hp 1220 is a postcript one

my printer got the postscipt extension and the memory extension

more : with postscript extension driver i can set the memory extension

Can you try to install an updated hplip package? It is not in the repos yet, but can be taken from here:

(32bit version)

(64bit version)

Well, updated hplip is now available in repositories. Would be nice to know if it helps to resolve this bug...
Comment 5 Denis Silakov 2012-09-04 15:40:33 MSD
Ok, after updating hplip to 3.12.6, "HP LaserJet 1220 Postscript" driver appears among available drivers for this printer and it will be selected by default when configuring printer for the first time.
Comment 6 philippe.roubach 2012-09-04 16:10:58 MSD
sorry but it is false

i made a test with rosa marathon rp1 64 bit and hplip 3.12.6 the last one

the selected driver is always the pcl one not the ppd one

the ppd is in hplip since almost the very beginning of hplip
it was installed by default without pb with mandriva 2008

it's not a hplip pb it's pb upper in system-config-printer
since 2009.0 the setup of the hp 1220 is broken
if you delete the printer installed in  system-config-printer
you use hp device manager to install the printer then a good ppd is installed

i assume there is something in cfp that force the use of pcl driver


- unable to print with pcl or ppd one if i use cfg

i found :
-the uri used by hp device manger is :
- the uri used by cfg is

Need restesting before releasing Enterprise X2.
Comment 8 Denis Silakov 2015-05-25 21:06:39 MSD
Is it possible to check if this bug is valid for ROSA Desktop Fresh R5?
Comment 9 Denis Silakov 2015-06-22 13:36:31 MSD
Let's join this with bug 2720, since we unlikely will care of it for Marathon, and for RED X2 we use Desktop Fresh as a basis.
