Installs HPLIP printers and faxes in the CUPS spooler. Tries to automatically determine the correct PPD file to use. Allows the printing of a testpage. Performs basic fax parameter setup. SYNOPSIS
hp-setup [MODE] [OPTIONS] [SERIAL NO.|USB bus:device|IP|DEVNODE] MODE
Run in graphical UI mode: -u or --gui (Default) Run in interactive mode: -i or --interactive OPTIONS
Automatic mode: -a or --auto (-i mode only) To specify the port on a multi-port JetDirect: --port=<port> (Valid values are 1*, 2, and 3. *default) No testpage in automatic mode: -x (-i mode only) To specify a CUPS printer queue name: -p<printer> or --printer=<printer> (-i mode only) To specify a CUPS fax queue name: -f<fax> or --fax=<fax> (-i mode only) Type of queue(s) to install: -t<typelist> or --type=<typelist>. <typelist>: print*, fax* (*default) (-i mode only) To specify the device URI to install: -d<device> or --device=<device> (--qt4 mode only) Remove printers or faxes instead of setting-up: -r or --rm or --remove (-u only) Set the language: -q <lang> or --lang=<lang>. Use -q? or --lang=? to see a list of available language codes. Set the logging level: -l<level> or --logging=<level> <level>: none, info*, error, warn, debug (*default) Run in debug mode: -g (same as option: -ldebug) This help information: -h or --help SERIAL NO.|USB ID|IP|DEVNODE USB bus:device (usb only): "xxx:yyy" where 'xxx' is the USB bus and 'yyy' is the USB device. (Note: The ':' and all leading zeros must be present.) Use the 'lsusb' command to obtain this information. IPs (network only): IPv4 address "a.b.c.d" or "hostname" DEVNODE (parallel only): "/dev/parportX", X=0,1,2,... SERIAL NO. (usb and parallel only): "serial no." EXAMPLES
Setup using GUI mode: $ hp-setup Setup using GUI mode, specifying usb: $ hp-setup -b usb Setup using GUI mode, specifying an IP: $ hp-setup 192.168.0.101 One USB printer attached, automatic: $ hp-setup -i -a USB, IDs specified: $ hp-setup -i 001:002 Network: $ hp-setup -i 66.35.250.209 Network, Jetdirect port 2: $ hp-setup -i --port=2 66.35.250.209 Parallel: $ hp-setup -i /dev/parport0 USB or parallel, using serial number: $ hp-setup -i US12345678A USB, automatic: $ hp-setup -i --auto 001:002 Parallel, automatic, no testpage: $ hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0 Parallel, choose device: $ hp-setup -i -b par NOTES
1. If no serial number, USB ID, IP, or device node is specified, the USB and parallel busses will be probed for devices. 2. Using 'lsusb' to obtain USB IDs: (example) $ lsusb Bus 003 Device 011: ID 03f0:c202 Hewlett-Packard $ hp-setup --auto 003:011 (Note: You may have to run 'lsusb' from /sbin or another location. Use '$ locate lsusb' to determine this.) 3. Parameters -a, -f, -p, or -t are not valid in GUI (-u) mode. SEE ALSO
