hplip.tcel extension submitted - hplip.tczl to follow at some point.
Note the following:
1. This was tested with an officejetG85 and officejetK80 directly connected to a usb port. hplip does not support fax on these two machines (even though they have fax) and thus I could not test this.
2. hplip uses cups to print and fax, but several commands (see "ls /usr/local/bin/hp-*") support doing things directly - "hp-levels" is particularly useful...
3. the xsane extension can be used to scan with hplip - I have not yet compiled the PIL program required to scan directly from hplip.
4. hplip should print to a parallel port and/or network connected printer, but I do not have one to test.
5. the hplip extension contains a cut-down version of sane-backends, it can only be used to scan with hp all-in-one printer/fax/scanners.
6. If you only want to print from an hp all-in-one machine, it might be better to use the hpijs_hpoj extension...
NB: You need to use the menu item/icon to start cups/dbus otherwise hplip will not work:
