Hello,

I'm trying to get my printer working. I must install some drivers i think. I found ones (.run file), but it gives me error when runned:
Code:
Creating directory hplip-3.11.5
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing HPLIP 3.11.5 Self Extracting Archive......................................
  File "./install.py", line 91                                                                                                       
    sys.exit(0)                                                                                                                     
                ^                                                                                                                   
TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation


What's the problem?

Thou shalt not try and install anything by hand if it's in portage. Even if it's not in portage you should write an ebuild instead.

Good advice indeed. @kbzium, to clarify, hplip is in Portage:
Code:
~ # emerge -s hplip
Searching...   
[ Results for search key : hplip ]
[ Applications found : 1 ]

*  net-print/hplip
      Latest version available: 3.12.4
      Latest version installed: [ Not Installed ]
      Size of files: 20,129 kB
      Homepage:      http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html
      Description:   HP Linux Imaging and Printing. Includes printer, scanner, fax drivers and service tools.
      License:       GPL-2
Just emerge it. :wink:

Okay the printer is working. But i came across another problem - how can I scan files? Hardware button doesn't work - orange diode is blinking. As for sotware, i cannot find scanning option anywhere...


//edit

Okay it's pretty easy. Just use flag "scanner" and then emerge some scanning software, ex. xsane :)
