Hi Folks,

I'm having some issues adding a networked HP Officejet 6958 Printer on CUPS. Incidentally I'm running FreeBSD 12.0 release version.

When going through the CUPS add-printer routine, I'm unable to find a ".ppd" for this particular series, which is HP Officejet 6950. Ive installed both the CUPS and the HPLIP binary packages. Anyone else seen similar issues?

Appreciate any input...

Does the next command list the PPD?

pkg info --list-files hplip | grep ppd | grep 6950

Did not the printer come with a CD/DVD with the drivers for Mac or Linux?
