After Installing Peppermint (the latest version 64 bit) installed printer (HP Deskjet 1050 j410 series) will not print test page when commanded to do so. Is there any way to correct this? Thank you for your time and consideration.

I too have the same problem. Have the latest peppermint installed on an Acer One netbook.

I used the add printer and installed the recommended drivers for this printer. The printer installs and looks to be working fine. You can send over a test page and it appears to go through on the computer, but nothing happens at the printer.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Same printer ?

If so, have you tried installing the hplip-gui:
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
then tried configuring you printer through

menu>Preferences>HPLIP Toolbox
