• Printer password and user name


    Hi am brand new. When I try to install my hp deskjet1000 printer is recognized all goes well until I enter user name and password then it fails. Tried everything I can. What to do?

  • To administrate printers you need username=root password=that you set as user password on installation
    Do you enable cups/printer support on installation?
    And what are you doing to install the printer?

    Which DE (Gnome/KDE e.t.c.)

    systemctl status org.cups.cupsd.service
    

    inside terminal will show if the service is enabled…

    To install what you need if not:

    $ sudo pacman -S ups system-config-printer hplip
    
    $ sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service
    $ sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service
    $ sudo hp-setup -i
