Re: MX-17.1 can't print to parallel-port-connected "hp DeskJet 350c" inkjet printer

@dolphin_oracle: according to the HP support chart, that printer only supported with hplip with a USB interface https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/supported_devices/index Thanks for the link.

MX-17.1 can't print to parallel-port-connected "hp DeskJet 350c" inkjet printer

@all: I am currently doing some some tests on an old notebook that has three USB ports, all of which are in use, and one parallel port. I tried to print to a hp DeskJet 350c mobile color inkjet printer (model number C2697A), which is a fairly good old type of printer that can even run on rechargeabl...

The bug is: They seem to have not only translated the diplayed short-cut, but also the one used from the system-config. E.g in local...
