I've always used hplip for my HP printers.  It's where the official linux drivers for many printers went.

the Cups web interface is pretty straight forward, but hplip also has a tool to add printers.
There is also system-config-printer, which is another UI for cups.  I find them all pretty straight forward.

Thanks,

I had forgotten about system-config-printer, or confused it with Document Print Status.

I downloaded VL64-7.1-STD-B1.iso, put it on a usb stick with unetbootin.  It would not install on my Lenovo N586, a fairly new machine with 500G hard drive.  In both automatic and expert it stopped at "Preparing package Install."  This contrasts with VL64-7.1-STD-B0.51.iso, which installed via unetbootin just fine on the same machine.  I will download it again, just in case it was a bad download, and report if that fixes it.

Speaking of automatic, I think the loader should explain what partitions it creates.

Happy Thanksgiving! What better way to start the day than testing out a new beta? So far I've done two installs in a vm and one on real hardware.

VL 7.1 B1 is a huge improvement over previous releases.
All CPUs are up and running.
Setting XFCE4 background to solid color works as intended.
Checking a single box during install disables boot splash, for those who prefer it that way.

Happy Thanksgiving.

BTW, a new download of B1 on a different usb stick didn't help.  I don't see a place to tell it which partition is boot.  Just guessing, but that might be the problem.  More likely its the video card in the Lenovo.

VL7.1 B1 - 64-bit

Hangs at initializing packages in the installer. Downloaded again on the off chance it was a bad download. Same issue with new ISO and burn.

you have to download again,  as md5sum output 's not correct...data 's corrupted

make sure md5sum  equals to

Thanks vincent2 and happy Thanksgiving.  I see your md5sum is for a B0 version and mine for B1.  Is that significant?

So, though I don't understand this md5sum business, as Vincent2 suggests, data is apparently corrupted.  However, I see no need to download it again.  I have done so twice without success.

Just installed b1 64 bit  via unetbootin usb disk, install went smoothly....
booted into xfce4  desktop nicely, now more cute  blue color.....
now halt  command can turn off pc nicely.....

ONLY DAUNTING  side lies at "missing vliloconf" command, log in as root, no vliloconf  command available....now still can't make another botloader for grub2 yet.....always have to edit at grub booting menu  for booting to desktop....
PLS SUGGESTED WHERE TO GET  THE MISSING VLILOCONF PKG?

Did n't find "menu.lst"  file under   /boot/grub   at all,  how to edit  grub booting menu manually?

additionally, inside Thunar , right clicking mouse  to txz file, enter password,  installpkg  couldn't install txz at all in fact....missing link.....

Downloaded VL64-7.1-STD-B1.iso and got the same md5sum as sledgehammer.
Downloaded VL64-7.1-STD-B0.51toB1.delta and applied it to B0.51. Different result, it matches the official posted md5sum.
Does look like the B1 ISO file is corrupt.  :(

to save your precious time, better Download VL64-7.1-STD-B0.51toB1.delta, only 106M.

then go to console:

xdelta patch VL64-7.1-STD-B0.51toB1.delta 


you'll get  VL64-7.1-STD-B1.iso in that directory...

if B1 ISO ( uploaded to  http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/) file is corrupted,  do advise vector to upload correct iso again.
