It seems that a HPLIP interface is available for this printer, so it should probably work with CUPS and _maybe_ with the normal means of printing (FreeBSD printer spooler plus a printer filter that turns PS, the _default_ output language for printing, into the specific non-standard language that printer wants to be spoken to in). http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/laserjet/hp_laserjet_m1120_mfp.html http://foo2xqx.rkkda.com/ I'm using a similar approach for a terrible Samsung color laserprinter (foo2qpdl-wrapper in my specific case) which I could easily integrate with the already mentioned CUPS, as well as the normal system's printer subsystem. However, I also have not tested if it works for the M1120, because I prefer to use printers that work, that's why I don't own such a thing. :-) -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
