I use CUPS to manager the printer. Install
cups to get it. The default driver for this printer that CUPS chooses does not work! (
HP DesignJet 1050c pcl, 1.0 (color)). Instead I installed
printer-driver-hpcups (perhaps only one of these was required) and chose the driver
HP Deskjet 1050 j410 Series, hpcups 3.21.2 (color).
I tend to prefer to use “fast draft” quality, which can be set in the CUPS administration options page.
Seems to require the
libsane-hpaio packages. I use
simple-scan for scanning. I had to
chown the device file
sane-find-scanner report that no scanner was identified then you probably need one of the above pacakges.
