Setup HP PSC 2210

Debian Packages: hpoj

  # ptal-init setup
    Probe parallel (n)
    Probe USB (y)
      Setting up as "mlc:usb:PSC_2200_Series"
  # wajig restart cupsys
    Reconfigure cupsys printer at http://localhost:631
    For the URI choose ptal:/mlc:usb:PSC_2200_Series

Note that the hpoj daemon is the one to start/stop when changing hpoj options.

Test it works as a user:

  $ ptal-devid
    MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:PSC 2200 Series;
    CMD:MLC,PCL,PML,DW-PCL,DYN;CLS:PRINTER;
    1284.4DL:4d,4e,1;SN:MY32AF320G0G;
    S:0380008084021000002c148005cc250005c;AiO:0;

If permission problems (printing works just fine but can't access the device for scanning etc.), then try:

  # chmod o+rx /dev/ptal-printd
