Asked by VINODREDDY on 2008-03-19

Hello

The device which i am using is HP OJ6318

I have problem in sending fax directly for open office using hp-sendfax, once it worked by importing the open office file directly on to the HP Device manager - send fax

When closing the application ( open office ) & tried opening it's not working what could be the problem.

Pls find the HPLIP installed on my laptop i have suselinux 10 version with HPLIP as mentioned below.

HPLIP automatic installer installs correctly for Suse 10, then the following steps need to be completed:

Step 7: Post Installation Step(s)

A. NOTE - Older distro's, IE SUSE 10.0 or /proc/dev/bus Users the following steps need to be completed.

   1. Edit the 55-hpmud.rules file

su -c "kate /etc/udev/rules.d/55-hpmud.rules

   2. Replace the middle section with the follow: (it appears similiar)

SYSFS{idVendor}=="03f0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="??11", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'X=%k; X=$${X#usbdev}; B=$${X%%%%.*}; D=$${X#*.}; printf /proc/bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $$B $$D'", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'chown lp: %c; chmod 666 %c'"
SYSFS{idVendor}=="03f0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="??02", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'X=%k; X=$${X#usbdev}; B=$${X%%%%.*}; D=$${X#*.}; printf /proc/bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $$B $$D'", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'chown lp: %c; chmod 666 %c'"
SYSFS{idVendor}=="03f0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="??12", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'X=%k; X=$${X#usbdev}; B=$${X%%%%.*}; D=$${X#*.}; printf /proc/bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $$B $$D'", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'chown lp: %c; chmod 666 %c'"
SYSFS{idVendor}=="03f0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="??04", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'X=%k; X=$${X#usbdev}; B=$${X%%%%.*}; D=$${X#*.}; printf /proc/bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $$B $$D'", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'chown lp: %c; chmod 666 %c'"
SYSFS{idVendor}=="03f0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="??17", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'X=%k; X=$${X#usbdev}; B=$${X%%%%.*}; D=$${X#*.}; printf /proc/bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $$B $$D'", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'chown lp: %c; chmod 666 %c'"

   3. Save the file, exit Kate.

B. Add the user to the LP group.

   1. Check if your user is part of the lp group.

groups

You should see an output something like; users, lp

   2. If you don't see lp add the user to the lp group.

usermod -G lp <username>

   3. Logout and Logback in to your system.
