Post Printing problems~ "No authentication data"
Antix 8.5, fluxbox, on a MacBook.

I have a HP printer, model PSC 2355. I installed all of the files recommended in the antix how-to guide. My printer even shows up in the printer configuration application~ "PSC_2350_series". So I must have installed the driver from the hp website. What else am I missing? I am just connecting my home printer to my laptop via my usb port. Do I even need cups?

If I try to send a file from abiword or lilypad, the printer doesn't respond. When I print a test page, the page advances and seems to stop in the printer partway through. Only after waiting for a while and eventually canceling the operation does the printer finally release a page bearing the line, "this is a test page."

At the end of the following error log, it mentions dirty files and authentication issues. What do you think?

Code:
D [14/Aug/2010:13:18:33 -0700] cupsdReadClient: 16 GET /admin/log/error_log HTTP/1.1
D [14/Aug/2010:13:18:33 -0700] cupsdSetBusyState: Active clients and dirty files
D [14/Aug/2010:13:18:33 -0700] cupsdAuthorize: No authentication data provided.

Really, no suggestions?? Not even a guide someone can refer me to? Think I should reinstall the printer driver?

I don't have a printer, but did you check the antiX FAQ?

I did check the FAQ, I had just missed the part about going to the CUPS interface. I saw the section titled "How to set up an HP printer", and downloaded all the files they recommended, but didn't go to http://localhost:631/ to get things set up properly.
So last night I went to the website, clicked on "Adding Printers and Classes" under "CUPS for Administrators", clicked "Add Printer", typed in my username and pass, then selected my printer.

Problem solved!
