need laserjet 3700dtn driver/modules for rhel4 server

Asked by Joyce Henley

I am trying to configure an hp laserjet 3700dtn printer on a RHEL4 system.

a driver for color laserjet 3700dtn does not come up as one of the hp vendor choices in system-config-printer.

What do I need to download/configure to configure hp laserjet 3700dtn printer on a redhat enterprise 4 system?

thanks..

The HP Color Laserjet 3700dtn is supported by HPLIP.

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/color_laserjet/hp_color_laserjet_3700n.html

However the automatic installer does not support RHEL 4 and we have no RHEL 4 RPM available. You'll want to install HPLIP manually using this as a guide:

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/distros/other.html

You'll have to work through each of the dependencies one by one and you'll probably want to do an HPIJS only install and turn off the other options to limit the dependencies.

Hope this helps get you going in the right direction.
