HP Device Manager
« on: May 12, 2011, 05:02:22 pm »

I just installed 7.0 rc1 and am now trying to install my printer but I cant get the HP device manager to open to even start. Help would br good since this is also the first time trying to get a printer to hook up.

Did you try installing with CUPS? Start with VASM or http://localhost:631/admin .

Hmmm... hp-toolbox wants libnetsnmp.so.20, but RC1 has libnetsnmp.so.25. Running this as root to fake it with a symlink works:
Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.so /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.so.20
