hp cp1215 printer on slackware 14.0

After success story of installing printer HP cp 1215 on slackware 13.1 and 13.37, this time I had a little challenge when I upgraded the slack into 14.0

It seems the slacks had hplip itself already. It version is hplip-3.12.9-i486-1 so the previous 3.11.3a I used before is no good and we can skip it.

Now we still need foo2zjs
$wget -c http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$tar -xzf foo2zjs.tar.gz
in to the directory and build the installation
$cd foo2zjs
$./getweb 1215
$make install
$make cups

Go to browser and go to cups setting, type localhost:631 or in the start menu type printer configuration
In cups browser Click administration – add new printer
Choose the printer
Click HP type
Click HP Color Laserjet CP1215 Foomatic/foo2hp

After that, change the setting in printer option, change the color mode to Color than monochrome

That’s it
