Remove the suspect printer and add in a new one.


Did it ever work correctly?

Text, talk, drive...CRASH.

Hang up and drive @#$%^^

I have not been able to remove the detected printer. I dont know if that was a former printer or not. Have not been able to add the new printer.

I am unable to add the HP Photosmart 2410 and system wont detect the printer that is connected. I have had an HP printer before that worked.

When I try to add printer it gives me a list of brand names and models but mine is not on the list. When I click forward it looks for drivers. I dont think I need one.\

I have a Linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

So this never worked?

Could it be that linux is just calling it by a different number and it is actually the printer that you have?

Photosmart 2410 is a printer,scanner, fax,copier. It is probably not supported

HP is one of the best supported set of printers for linux. I'd go to the HP site for their drivers first.

Hang up and live.

I looked at the HP site. They dont have Linux drivers. They sent me to another website which had no drivers for my printer.
