We just got two of these HP LJ M602 “enterprise” printers in, and I’m trying to work out what driver/ppd. The model’s not listed in the current
– does anyone know what might work for it? I really don’t want to have to install hplips on 140 or 150 systems….

  • Greetings,

    Normally I’ve had decent experience wit LJ4/5/6 PCL5 drivers for HP
    printers. But lj1020 gave me a tough time way back in 2007 or so when CentOS 5 was new.

    Not sure if it is of same vintage as lj1020 like stuff.

    Thanks. Just to try to get it running, I’ve modified CUPS for the Laserjet Series 6 PCL. I also tried lp -d file.ps, and it printed, though the filename at the top/bottom was cut in half.

  • Greetings,

    I remember that pain. fiddled with ppd. turned out that LJ printers generally leave about .1″ or so margin. Mechanical design I guess

    I used to set my document margins to at least .3″

  • Greetings,

    Try cups test page using localhost:631. I used to use it as an inch and mm scale sometimes :)

    Oh, right, good thought… well, the thing is, folks print via what, IPP?
    from their workstations or servers, not through a central control, I
    think. I might be able to use the web interface to set it on the printer itself.

  • Hi, Keith,

    What do you mean, the machine it’s physically connected to? This is a networked printer, with its own IP, plugged into the network, nothing between it and the switch.

  • OK thanks for pointing that out mark.

    So does it have it’s own linux CUPS server built into it?
