Hi Tijl/Others,

Thanks for replying.

This is what I get when I try to open up the cups web interface in my 
browser even after installing apache24 :

> Chromium's connection attempt to*localhost*was rejected

What could I be missing here ? hplip package was installed, along with 
all its dependencies.

This is what I get in dmesg :

ulpt0: <HP DeskJet 1110 series, class 0/0, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 6> on usbus2
ulpt0: using bi-directional mode

So the printer is being detected, just as you stated. A little bit more 
help, and I could fire up my printout page. Perhaps something to do with 
httpd.conf ? Or perhaps /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf ?

Thanks again &
Manish Jain
