How to get and install an HP M276nw driver?

Sun Mar 20, 2016 11:43 am

I have this MFP laser from HP and can't find a way to install this device.
I found some informations about an hp repository where the HP M276nw should be part of but I did not find the right ppd driver file and a step by step solution.

Thx for any further help and descriptions about this CUPs adventure.

If it is actually a HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color MFP m276nw

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/mo ... 276nw.html

Supported by HPLIP 3.12.9, therefore Raspbian Jessie and:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hplip cups
You need to be a member of lpadmin group

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi

Rather than negativity think outside the box !
RPi 4B 4GB (SSD Boot) RaspiOS64 ARM64

Hey,

unfortunately even after a reboot I am not able to install a printer.

If I open the website (http://192.168.xxx.xxx:631/) I see V 1.7.5 and if I try to add a printer I get a connection refused error from http://192.168.xxx.xxx:631/admin.

Any ideas?
Thx

P.S.: It's a connection problem: 127.0.0.1:631 works

Change the config to allow connections from anywhere in the 192.168.xx.xx/24 subnet.
Try httpS://192.168.3.14:631 (changed to your hidden address) and login with your pi userid (as long as pi is in the lpadmin group)

OK, here a few comments:

On the raspi I am able to open the cups admin page via 127.0.0.1:631 and to add a printer.

If I am trying to select the modell the ephiphany Browser is running under heavy load.

The first problem is that there are 8 or 10 drivers with the exact same description - no difference.
The second problem: I do not get an add button to add the selected printer modell.

Even after a minute there is a still growing list of HP Printers where I can select the right one but there is still no button for adding this printer.

If I start TOP in the terminal session I see the browser running at 103% ... but nothing happens for minutes inside the browser window where the progress bar stays still.

stop, after 5 or 6 minutes while typing here the site was completly loaded and now there is the add button.

Change this stuff in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf

Code: Select all

Listen 0.0.0.0:631 # change me
...
<Location />
  Order allow,deny
  Allow @LOCAL # change me
</Location>
...
<Location /admin>
  Order allow,deny
  Allow @LOCAL # change me
</Location>
...
<Location /admin/conf>
  AuthType Default
  Require user @SYSTEM # leave me alone
  Order allow,deny
</Location>
restart cupsd and you'll be able to access it from ANY machine in your local subnet. It's a bunch easier doing it from Firefox or Chromium on Windows. If you can't do that install Chromium 48 on your RPi (because that's less likely to crash than Epiphany).

Thanks Dougie, but unfortunatelly I have more questions than answers :roll:

I don't know if something went wrong, but when I tried this sudo nano /etc/cups/cupsd.conf I found only one "listen".
That syntay looked very different to your "Listen 0.0.0.0:631 # change me" and therefore I am asking

# Allow remote access
Port 631
Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock


Shall I change "Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock" into "Listen 0.0.0.0:631" or the IP of my Win 10 Laptop?
I am not sure if 0.0.0.0 is something like a mask.

What else do I have to do at the "change me" lines?

<Location />
Order allow,deny
Allow @LOCAL # change me (into what? my laptop IP adress or just delete @LOCAL)
</Location>
...
<Location /admin>
Order allow,deny
Allow @LOCAL # change me (into what? my laptop IP adress or just delete @LOCAL)
</Location>
...
<Location /admin/conf>
AuthType Default
Require user @SYSTEM # leave me alone (what do I have to do here?)
Order allow,deny

Sorry, but I am very unfamiliar with that stuff and I do not want to make a mistake and restore the SD again and again.

Hey,

that works fine. The web page with the selection of HP Pinter is now - on my W 10 Laptop - instantly (fast) available and no page forward waitings I had on my raspi epiphany browser.
Great job, well done.

If any other might follow: to restart cups try this sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

Meanwhile I got chromium running on my newest raspi 3 B where it amazing fast(er) than on the 2 B.

Thx a lot for all of your support. :D

I checked this with the initial conf file I got from the installer and at first sight I was confused and it looked like that all CHANGE ME lines were already adapted, but I was wrong.

I only had to change better add these 2 lines

Code: Select all

Listen 0.0.0.0:631 # ADD ME
...
<Location /admin>
  Order allow,deny
  Allow @LOCAL # ADD ME
</Location>
Restart cupsd: sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

But thanks again for your quick and efficient support.
