with Ubuntu

HP officejet 7130

on OsX 10.3.4 the hp supplied drivers wont install properly (giving “out of memory” errors). so the solution is to use the gimp-print drivers (v 4.2.7), which work perfectly but need a few instructions for setting up and configuring.. ..

  • download gimp-print from here > http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php3
  • install the package
  • follow the included instuctions about how to add a printer (How to print with Gimp-Print.pdf)
  • an 'officejet 7100 series' item should appear, select it
  • select the “HP DeskJet 900 series - CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.7” driver (which works for the 7130 also)
  • print

on debian (or other GnuLinux) this might help > http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=HP-OfficeJet_7130
