       hp-setup - Printer/Fax Setup Utility


       Installs  HPLIP  printers  and  faxes  in  the  CUPS  spooler. Tries to
       automatically determine  the  correct  PPD  file  to  use.  Allows  the
       printing of a testpage. Performs basic fax parameter setup.


       hp-setup [MODE] [OPTIONS] [SERIAL NO.|USB bus:device|IP|DEVNODE]


       Run in graphical UI mode:
              -u or --gui (Default)

       Run in interactive mode:
              -i or --interactive


       Automatic mode:
              -a or --auto (-i mode only)

       To specify the port on a multi-port JetDirect:
              --port=<port> (Valid values are 1*, 2, and 3. *default)

       No testpage in automatic mode:
              -x (-i mode only)

       To specify a CUPS printer queue name:
              -p<printer> or --printer=<printer> (-i mode only)

       To specify a CUPS fax queue name:
              -f<fax> or --fax=<fax> (-i mode only)

       Type of queue(s) to install:
              -t<typelist>  or  --type=<typelist>.  <typelist>:  print*,  fax*
              (*default) (-i mode only)

       To specify the device URI to install:
              -d<device> or --device=<device> (--qt4 mode only)

       Remove printers or faxes instead of setting-up:
              -r or --rm or --remove (-u only)

       Set the language:
              -q <lang> or --lang=<lang>. Use -q? or --lang=? to see a list of

       Set the logging level:
              -l<level>  or  --logging=<level>  <level>:  none,  info*, error,

              -h or --help


       USB bus:device (usb only):
              "xxx:yyy" where 'xxx' is the  USB  bus  and  'yyy'  is  the  USB
              device.  (Note:  The ':' and all leading zeros must be present.)
              Use the 'lsusb' command to obtain this information.

       IPs (network only):
              IPv4 address "a.b.c.d" or "hostname"

       DEVNODE (parallel only):
              "/dev/parportX", X=0,1,2,...

       SERIAL NO. (usb and parallel only):
              "serial no."


       Setup using GUI mode:
              $ hp-setup

       Setup using GUI mode, specifying usb:
              $ hp-setup -b usb

       Setup using GUI mode, specifying an IP:
              $ hp-setup

       One USB printer attached, automatic:
              $ hp-setup -i -a

       USB, IDs specified:
              $ hp-setup -i 001:002

              $ hp-setup -i

       Network, Jetdirect port 2:
              $ hp-setup -i --port=2

              $ hp-setup -i /dev/parport0

       USB or parallel, using serial number:
              $ hp-setup -i US12345678A

       USB, automatic:
              $ hp-setup -i --auto 001:002

       Parallel, automatic, no testpage:
              $ hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0

       Parallel, choose device:
              $ hp-setup -i -b par


       1. If no serial number, USB ID, IP, or device node  is  specified,  the
       USB and parallel busses will be probed for devices.

       2. Using 'lsusb' to obtain USB IDs: (example)

          $ lsusb

                Bus 003 Device 011: ID 03f0:c202 Hewlett-Packard

          $ hp-setup --auto 003:011

          (Note: You may have to run 'lsusb' from /sbin or  another  location.
       Use '$ locate lsusb' to determine this.)

       3. Parameters -a, -f, -p, or -t are not valid in GUI (-u) mode.
