Thread: USB HP 2550N Printer Issue

  1. USB HP 2550N Printer Issue

    I am new to Linux & Ubuntu. I have successfully created a dual boot set
    up between Vista and Ubuntu on my HP Athalon Pavillion A6030N system.
    All perhiperals are working under Ubuntu, including my USB Kensington
    wireless mouse. However for some reason my HP 2550N color laserjet
    printer is not functioning.

    The printer is showing up as installed in the System-Printer area. The
    PDF printer driver is working fine. When I perform a printer page test
    the printer appears to be hung up with the green printing indicator
    light just flashing on and off continuously.

    I have not found an answer on the net, but did find out about the
    system log for cups. The only thing that sticks out to me is the one of
    lines that keeps repeating itself- cupsdAuthorize: No authentication
    data provided.

    Below is a portion of the cups log report. Hopefully someone can point
    me in the right direction. Ubuntu appears to be a wonderful alternative
    to Windows, so I am hoping I can get over this hump in order to start
    really utlizing it.

    You can use the custom PPD

    I am still getting the "cupsdAuthorize: No authentication data
    provided" error log message.

    Perhaps I didn't handle custom PPD download properly. I clcked on the
    link and a text file opened up. I save saved it to my desktop and
    renamed it hp_2550N_custom.ppd

    After removing the existing HP 2550 printer and restarting, I added a
    new version and selected Provide PPD File. This is where I selected the
    hp_2550N_custom.ppd file I created.

    If I did correctly handle the custom PPD file download, do you have any
    other suggestions for a fix to my issue.
