I am quite new to wattos, just installed it and now I ahve the following priting problem.
Wattos has correctly found my HP laserjet 1018, however when I print nothing happens, the printer queue shows status stopped and I see the following message under printerstate:
idle - /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed
greetings from Holland
@Teejay Tried this, I uninstalled the printer, rebooted, still does not print:-( rocessing - /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed
Anoy other ideas? Frustrating is that it does print with ubuntu 12, but that is too heavy for my system:-(
@Bas How annoying - sounds like there's a U12 solution witing to be backported to U11 and hence wattOS.
If you've searched online you'll know that this is not an uncommon error, and there are a myriad of fixes to accommodate the myriad of printers.
Suggest : http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ which seems to have something specific for the 1018,
and failing that the HP website for the 1018 which might have a more specific HPLIP.
