(Apologies if you already have it installed) As seen on the Linuxprinting.org website -- highly recommended as a reference for anything printer-related -- from the HP FAQ: _________________________________________________________________ Section 13: HP DeskJet 3420 13.0 See also the HP DeskJet 3420 database page. 13.1 Does this printer work with gimp-print? No, this printer does not support PCL. This printer only works with the HPIJS software from Hewlett Packard. _________________________________________________________________ You can install hpijs from ports, or build it without problems from the source. This should help you to print, and it comes with heaps of documentation about installing and configuring it. Also, look at the page referred to above for possibly more info...
