• Help installing HP Deskjet 2130


    Trying to install this printer, from CLI I ran

    # hp-setup -u
    

    select USB
    It lists my printer, so I hit next
    PPD File: (Not found. Click browse button to select a PPD file.)
    I browse and clearly see 2 files for the Deskjet 2130, but when I select them, it doesn’t change anything. Still says “Not found” with the “add printer” greyed out.

  • @judd That did not work.

  • try

    sudo hp-setup -i
    

    And the PPD file needs to extracted
    /usr/share/ppd/HP/hp-deskjet_2130_series.ppd.gz
    needs to

    gunzip hp-deskjet_2130_series.ppd.gz
    

    hp-deskjet_2130_series.ppd is the needed ppd file…
