I would like to use my HP OfficeJet Pro 8100 with my freeBSD laptop, but I can't find a ppd file. Is there a way around this?
Please look in the hplip-3.16.9/ppd folder:
% find hplip-3.16.9 -name hp-officejet_pro_8100*.ppd.gz
The version of hplip available in pkg is 3.16.8, and that didn't like either of those pdd files.
There is a 3.16.9 port available, and I tried "make install clean" with that, but it looks like it installed the old stuff in /usr/local/share/ppd/HP - it didn't install anything in /usr/local/share/ppd/hpcups or /usr/local/share/ppd/hpijs. I tried copying the hpcups and hpijs directories from the tar files to /usr/local/share, and that didn't work.
I may have to wait on the 3.16.9 package.
