psc 2510 install on centos 4.3

If you have the full installation of centos, there is actually very little to do to establish printing and scanning for the HP PSC-2510 printer.

Setup printing
:

Plug in the printer and turn it on. A dialog box should pop up and you just need to select (HP | PSC 2500 series) as the connected printer

If you launch the (applications > system settings > printing) application you should see the printer.

Setup scanning:

start a terminal window and su as root
$ su -
# ptal-init setup -v

follow the prompts, this works for network as well, but in my case my connection is just usb.

Probe for USB-connected devices ([y]/n)? y

Probing "/dev/usb/lp0"...
Found "psc 2500 series"

# exit
$ xsane

This runs xsane which is the scanning application
