    You haven't given us all the details, so I'll take a wild guess - the printer is shared from a Windows computer?

    To use Windows Printing, a CUPS-provided printing protocol, you need a CUPS driver (a driver that uses the CUPS/unix modular driver concept).

    If I've guessed correctly, install the three part hpijs driver set from:
    http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/OpenPrinting/macosx

    If you need a guide for setup, try this:

    (I know it's for Tiger, but close enough)

    Yes, it's to a windows shared printer. I downloaded the hpijs driver along with the foomatic-rip driver. The setup from the link says there is a third part needed. What is the third and where can I get it? So far, still have the same problem.
