    So, I have a HP C5550 printer that only has two outlets. One for my computer and one for my power. I have a bluetooth dongle and can get the Touchpad to find it and pair with it, but I can't get it to print. Is there a way that I can get the tablet to recognize this or an I just S.O.L.?

    From my reverse engineering of the printmgr daemon, I've isolated the supported printers. The list can be found here:

    Well that blows. I just got this printer a year ago and it worked perfectly with my android tablet. So has HP pulled support and advancements on WebOS and am I an ***** in assuming there will ne a fix anytime soon?

    HP is more interested in building an ecosystem which is why only HP printers are officially supported.

    As the thread I sent mentions, I was trying to get around the non-HP printer problems without complete success. It would take a re-write of the printmgrd daemon to fix it. Also, the driver only supports printing using IPP and PCL, so it would not be expected that connecting via bluetooth will have a chance.

    Any of the HP printers that support their "ePrint" infrastructure should work, but only the ones I have listed have full support. The others may work via the manual add printer path.

    Read the OP again. It IS an HP printer, just not an ePrint one.

    I tried the add printer path, and it recognizes it as a printer, but won't let it print. Any ideas? Sorry I'm not very knowledgeable of the lingo to know whether there are any other options besides learning how to code...
