HP DeskJet 400

RedHat 8.0 Configuration: pick the pcl3 driver, none of the others appear to work at all (they either produce bizarrely distorted output, or nothing at all).

Other oddities about the other drivers:

  • most of them generated a change-cartridge blinky light unless the job was submitted, and then the power cycled on the printer.
  • the other popular result was nothing, only a dead job in the lpq output.

Windows Notes

Make sure everything is set to Black and White -- I think when it is blinking the change-cartidge blinky light at you it wants the color cart. Forcing everything to black and white fixes this problem.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
