    hi there.

    mandrake 8.2, HP845c printer

    from http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/install.php
    i downloaded hpijs-1.3

    after i went to run window and tried to type
    # tar xzvf hpijs-1.3.tar.gz
    # cd hpijs-1.2
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install

    i got an error reply, something like MAN VIEWER not set etc

    any suggestions? i m really tired. i m new to linux and read all documentation but still cannot solve this

    i tried to move to next step, in case that the "driver" was somehow already set during installation of mandrake.
    to verify, i typed at run window:
    # hpijs -h

    same error reply

    Did you try to configure the printer in Mandrake Control Center?
