Hello everyone, I am back again with more troubles I can't seem to solve. This time it is involving my HP D1600 printer, which is connected to a Windows machine at some other location in the house. I'd like to connect this Crunchbang machine to it so I can print things, but I have been having some troubles.. As you can see in the screenshot, I have entered the location, and the path, which from what I can tell is completely correct.
At this point, I've had the ability to make the printer make a sound and move its little ink cartridges when I tried to print something, but beyond that, the actual printing never happens. As you can see, it stays at processing, and never stops.
I have tried installing multiple versions of hplip and none of them have made a difference. In fact, I think installing the latest version of hplip made my ability to at least move the cartridges go away.
Does anyone have the slightest clue what I could do?
EDIT: Here is another shot after I run "hp-setup" and choose network to find the printers. This is the part where the instructions given on the HP website do not follow through with what was supposed to happen.

Hope everyone doesn't mind me bumping this just once..
How about CUPS through the web interface? First enable a root password:
sudo passwd root
Then enter localhost:631 in your browser address bar. Log in as root with the root password in the dialog. Go fro there, it's pretty self explanatory.
