Looking for a Linux Driver

HP Recommended
Designjet t520
Linux

Hi all,

 

I am looking for a Linux driver to run our Design jet T520 on our company wide Mint 18.3 (Ubuntu derivative) OS. There is not one available in HPLIP which is disappointing. Does anyone know of one that might serve please.

I am not sure the right one or not. Found it on HP website :

Try it on your Linux, maybe work.... or change operating system to Linux

Hi ,

 

Thank you for the suggestion. I have tried the T120 driver and it seems to work fine – at least on A3 and A4. Cannot try anything bigger at present as no stock. However, I do not see any reason why there should be a problem with full size paper. Thank you for your very prompt reply and help.

Hi ,

 

I had seen that page but all the options seem to refer to firmware upgrades rather than drivers although perhaps that is terminology rather than fact. In any case, using the T120 driver seems to have worked. Thank you for taking the trouble to look up the driver page and replying. It was vary kind of you.

if printer can print small sizes, then use  CUSTOM    option to define any of your larger prints, no limitation, as long as not excede the width of your printer...

 

you gave wrong KUDO to me &  I did not deserve it,    remove it if possible..
