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?
Printer password and user name
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
