[Mageia-discuss] HP all in one DeskJet 1050 J410

Hi all, 

After seeing the recent threads about hplip testing it seemed 
like a good time to play with my "new" printer, that is a year 
or so old.  It is an all in one printer scanner copier, 
a HP DeskJet 1050 J140.  It was cheaper than buying replacement 
ink cartridges for my old PSC.  

It has never quite worked for me.  Various Linux installations 
do different things.  Just dealing with the test pages they 
all seem to be missing something; black, magenta, all of the 
text, or the bottom of the page.  From Mageia it seems to be 
missing black.  It has been officially supported since hplip 
3.10.6, I think.  

Has anyone seen that model working?  It looks like an 
upstream bug, but it is manifesting itself differently 
on different distributions.  Who should I submit a bug 
report to?  (And how many?)  The good news is that the 
scanner part works since the update.  

BTW what is LEDM?  It seems to be part of the update.
