Print, Scan and Fax Drivers for Linux

hp-setup: Printer/Fax Setup Utility (ver. 9.0)

Installs HPLIP printers and faxes in the CUPS spooler. Tries to automatically determine the correct PPD file to use. Allows the printing of a testpage. Performs basic fax parameter setup.

Usage: hp-setup [MODE] [OPTIONS] [SERIAL NO.|USB bus:device|IP|DEVNODE]

[MODE]

Run in graphical UI mode: -u or --gui (Default)
Run in interactive mode: -i or --interactive

[OPTIONS]

Automatic mode: -a or --auto (-i mode only)
To specify the port on a multi-port JetDirect: --port=<port> (Valid values are 1*, 2, and 3. *default)
No testpage in automatic mode: -x (-i mode only)
To specify a CUPS printer queue name: -p<printer> or --printer=<printer> (-i mode only)
To specify a CUPS fax queue name: -f<fax> or --fax=<fax> (-i mode only)
Type of queue(s) to install: -t<typelist> or --type=<typelist>. <typelist>: print*, fax* (*default) (-i mode only)
To specify the device URI to install: -d<device> or --device=<device> (--qt4 mode only)
Remove printers or faxes instead of setting-up: -r or --rm or --remove
Set the language: -q <lang> or --lang=<lang>. Use -q? or --lang=? to see a list of available language codes.
Set the logging level: -l<level> or --logging=<level>
  <level>: none, info*, error, warn, debug (*default)
Run in debug mode: -g (same as option: -ldebug)
This help information: -h or --help

[SERIAL NO.|USB ID|IP|DEVNODE]

USB bus:device (usb only): "xxx:yyy" where 'xxx' is the USB bus and 'yyy' is the USB device. (Note: The ':' and all leading zeros must be present.)
  Use the 'lsusb' command to obtain this information.
IPs (network only): IPv4 address "a.b.c.d" or "hostname"
DEVNODE (parallel only): "/dev/parportX", X=0,1,2,...
SERIAL NO. (usb and parallel only): "serial no."

Examples:

Setup using GUI mode: $ hp-setup
Setup using GUI mode, specifying usb: $ hp-setup -b usb
Setup using GUI mode, specifying an IP: $ hp-setup 192.168.0.101
One USB printer attached, automatic: $ hp-setup -i -a
USB, IDs specified: $ hp-setup -i 001:002
Network: $ hp-setup -i 66.35.250.209
Network, Jetdirect port 2: $ hp-setup -i --port=2 66.35.250.209
Parallel: $ hp-setup -i /dev/parport0
USB or parallel, using serial number: $ hp-setup -i US12345678A
USB, automatic: $ hp-setup -i --auto 001:002
Parallel, automatic, no testpage: $ hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0
Parallel, choose device: $ hp-setup -i -b par

Notes:

  1. If no serial number, USB ID, IP, or device node is specified, the USB and parallel busses will be probed for devices.
  1. Using 'lsusb' to obtain USB IDs: (example)
$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 011: ID 03f0:c202 Hewlett-Packard
$ hp-setup --auto 003:011
(Note: You may have to run 'lsusb' from /sbin or another location. Use '$ locate lsusb' to determine this.)
  1. Parameters -a, -f, -p, or -t are not valid in GUI (-u) mode.
