I am back with my Ubuntu Journey. After talking about my experience with support of some devices in Ubuntu last week. I would continue my discussion with the support of my printer.
I recently bought brand new HP F2120 All-in-One printer. An excellent piece of hardware for my home use. Its printing , copying and scanning support fits well in my day to day home use needs.
The printer ships with custom drivers for windows on a CD. And obviously the linux drivers are not available. I wanted to setup the printer in Linux and interesting it failed to work initially. I was also interested in setting it up as a scanner with the xsane tool.
I searched and found hplib package is required for this printer. I installed hplib using apt-get and it worked !
Pretty soon, I would try to blogging using optical character recognition(OCR). I have already installed tesseract-ocr based on the recommendation on the web.
