Known Issues in HPLIP 3.9.6

HPLIP Version: 
3.9.6
Printer(s): 
All
Linux OS Distribution(s): 
All
Notes: 
  1. Alignment does not work properly on the Deskjet 2600 series printer. (Workaround: Use a Windows PC to perform alignment)
  2. The hp-wificonfig tool should be run separately from hp-setup for the Officejet 6000, series Officejet 6500 series and Officejet J4600 series.

    - The preferred path for wireless printing on these devices is to configure your wireless enabled unit via “hp-wificonfig” prior to running “hp-setup”. As it stands, you can setup your wireless queue via “hp-setup” which invokes the “hp-wificonfig” command automatically (assuming you select the wireless option). However, invoking this command via “hp-setup” can possibly fail to work properly.
  3. When installing HPLIP 3.9.6 on openSUSE 10.3 you will need to quit the installer at the printer add stage, log out, log back in, and run hp-setup to finish the printer install.  The installer will add you to the lp and sys group for correct permissions, while logging out and back in will complete the process.
  4. When installing HPLIP 3.9.6 on Fedora 10 and 11 you will need to quit the installer at the printer add stage, log out, log back in, and run hp-setup to finish the printer install.  The installer will add you to the lp and sys group for correct permissions, while logging out and back in will complete the process.
