OS 10.4 - HP PhotoSmart 2575 Driver

Just bought a HP PhotoSmart 2575 (network enabled) printer.
I have two PowerBooks and installed the printer software/driver successfully on the first PowerBook. By this I mean that the "All-in-One" driver was recognized within the (Mac OS X) Printer Browser utilty and I could then connect to the printer.

For some reason on the second powerbook the "All-in-One" driver is not
recognized - ie does not appear in the (Mac OS X) Printer Browser
utilty. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, downloaded latest version etc. But always the same thing.

Anybody suggest why the second (identical) powerbook does not seem to know about the new driver?

Is it possible that the first install had a problem, and the subsequent uninstall (via HP Uninstall utility) does not remove everything it should? If so, any advice on cleaning out the hp driver/software installation so I can try to install again

I manually select the GIMP PhotoSMart 9100 driver and that seems to work, but I'd like to install the correct driver properly if possible.

Thanks for any help,
Darrell

Good luck to you. I have the same printer and tried to get it to network, but had no luck. Hopefully you will have better luck, than I did.

This worked for me:

--------------------------

Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.

To assist you in correcting the issue you are having, I suggest a
complete manual uninstall and reinstall. However, the reinstall will
be using the newest software online. I will provide the link below.

By uninstalling and reinstalling, you do one of two things:

1- provide a 'clean slate', from which we can attempt to correct any
errors or issues (if they appear)
2- solve the issue completely


Possible causes: Corrupt software CD, faulty installation, system
issues, computer system upgrade, virus.

Tests and Possible Resolutions:


NOTE 1: Please note that scanning over a network is not guaranteed
(even if it was previously working without issues), regardless of
type of connection. HP also does not provide support for installing
on, or connecting printer to, a server of any kind.

STEP 1 DOWNLOAD NEW SOFTWARE

The following procedure will allow you to download the newest version
of the software required for your printer and computer. It will allow
you to have the software as soon as possible and for free.

Possible causes: Corrupt software CD, faulty installation, system
issues, file not added to the Login Items list, computer system
upgrade.

Tests and Possible Resolutions:

NOTE:
You may download the software either before or after the uninstall.


The link for the download is:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...tem=cj-37831-1

The file we recommend you download is:

HP Photosmart 2570 Series All-in-One web installers for Mac OS X
v10.2.8, v10.3 and v10.4

Date: 01-2006 Version: 7.7.2 Size: 109.34M

NOTE: If the above website link does not work, copy and paste the
address in the address bar of your Internet browser. I have verified,
by closing the website and clicking on the provided link, that it does
re-open the required website. If you cannot access the website, you may
need to choose another browser or contact your Internet Service
Provider for assistance.


STEP 2 MANUALLY UNINSTALL
ISSUE:
There are built-in print-only drivers that by default install with
Tiger that may create conflicts with the drivers for the printer. The
most effective way of resolving numerous issues with the printer is to
remove all files relating to HP printers and then install them using
the latest drivers available from the HP web site.

NOTE: Before proceeding, please ensure you have downloaded the full
software packages for all HP hardware being used with this Mac,
including the printer.
NOTE: If possible, run the Uninstaller for the printer first. It can be
found in the following location:

MacintoshHD>Applications>HewlettPackard. Restart the computer and empty
the trash when prompted.

A manual uninstall is always suggested when upgrading your Operating
system
or All-in-One software. This will minimize the chance of
complications. To uninstall the HP all-in-one software, use the
following steps:

Double-click the Macintosh hard drive (labeled Macintosh HD by default).


Open the Applications folder.

Open the Utilities folder.

Double-click Activity Monitor. The Activity Monitor window should open.
If the window does not open:

When Activity Monitor opens, look for the following processes:

NOTE: Not all of these processes may be running.
HP Communications
HP Director
HP Image Zone
HP Trap Monitor
pipedaemon.
HPIO Classic Proxy
HPIO Classic Proxy 2
Hpdot3d
HP AiO Notifications.app
Print daemon

Highlight them one at a time and click the Quit Process icon above.

Click Force Quit to quit the process.

After you quit all of the above items found, close Activity Monitor.

Go back to the Applications folder.
Drag the HP AiO Software or the Hewlett-Packard folder to the Trash.

NOTE: Some of the files described in the following steps may not be
found.

Go back to the Macintosh hard drive.

Open the Library folder.

Open the Application Support folder.

Drag the hp folder into the trash.

Return to the Library folder.

Open the Caches folder.

Drag the following files to the trash:

Double-click your username (this should have a symbol of a house next to
it).

Drag the following files into the trash:

any files beginning with com.apple.print
any files beginning with com.hp
any files beginning with Hewlett-Packard
any files beginning with HP or hp

login windows plist to desktop

Return to the Library folder.

Open the Printers folder.

Drag any All-in-One printers listed here into the trash.

Drag the HP Director or HP Image Zone icon from the Dock and drop it on
an empty space on the desktop. The icon will disappear.

Close all open windows.

NOTE: If you have any items in the Trash that you would like to keep,
remove them before proceeding.
Empty the Trash.
Restart the Macintosh.

STEP 3 VERIFY and REPAIR PERMISSIONS
Now verify and possibly repair any permissions that might have been
affected by this removal of software:
Double-click the Macintosh HD. (by default called Macintosh
HD).Double-click the Applications folder.

Double-click the Utilities folder.

Double-click the Disk Utility.

Upon the left side, select the Macintosh HD. (It will be indented and
usually is the second entry in that list)

On the right side beneath the white box select Repair Disk Permissions.

This process may take several minutes, afterwards close the Disk
Utility by single-clicking the red dot from the trio at the top left of
this dialog box.

STEP 4 INSTALL NEW SOFTWARE

questions, and Setup Assistant should appear. but may not detect the
