Pong. :)

Sorry for the delay.

I installed the HPLIP and it's GUI packages from Core updates (manual 
installation since the testing version of rpm was compulsory).

However, when I print the test pages from systen-config-printer or 
HPLIP's interface, he still prints me a big black square. It does the 
same when I print a Writer .odt document.

When I click on 'Cancel' to cancel the printing in the 
system-config-printer task list, it _does not cancel_ the printing. To 
do so, I have to press the 'Cancel' button on the printer make it 
actually stop printing.

Here are the links to the logs :

The testing packages I have installed are the following, as you have 
told me :


I hope this helps.

I hope this offers you some clues.
