HP Linux Printing and Imaging System (HPLIP)

The HP Linux Printing and Imaging System provides full support for printing on most HP SFP (single function peripheral) inkjets and many LaserJets, and for scanning, sending faxes and for photo-card access on most HP MFP (multi-function peripheral) printers.

HPLIP is composed of: * System services to handle communications with the printers * HP CUPS backend driver (hp:) with bi-directional communication with HP printers (provides printer status feedback to CUPS and enhanced HPIJS functionality such as 4-side full-bleed printing support) * HP CUPS backend driver for sending faxes (hpfax:) * HPIJS Ghostscript IJS driver to rasterize output from PostScript(tm) files or from any other input format supported by Ghostscript, and also for PostScript(tm) to fax conversion support (HPIJS is shipped in a separate package) * Command line utilities to perform printer maintenance, such as ink-level monitoring or pen cleaning and calibration * GUI and command line utility to download data from the photo card interfaces in MFP devices * GUI and command line utilities to interface with the fax functions * A GUI toolbox to access all these functions in a friendly way * HPAIO SANE backend (hpaio) for flatbed and Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) scanning using MFP devices

USB, JetDirect (network) and parallel-port devices are supported.

Package version:2.8.6.b-4+lenny1


hplip (2.8.6-2) unstable; urgency=low

  To access the full functionality of hplip; ink check, toolbox, etc 
  the user must be a member of the 'scanner' group, even if your
  device doesn't support scanning.  This is a consequence of the
  way the udev rules are setup.

  This does not effect (k)Ubuntu users as they use HAL to provide access
  to the user logged at the console.

hplip (2.8.6.b-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix "hp-scan: Aborts with a traceback when trying to scan." 
    - Apply missing patches from -3 upload (Closes: #490640)

 -- Mark Purcell <msp@debian.or


When running hpiod as non-root:
	- add it to group scanner (see Ubuntu)
   - hp-toolbox busyloops if hpssd is restarted
   - hp-toolbox busyloops in other ocasions
   - hp-sendfax busyloops

   Looks like all the pyqt code that talks to hpssd likes to busyloop

   - faxing does not work since 1.6.7.

	Talk to upstream:
		- Use libtool for dlopen()

   - syslogging from hpps
