Wandboard printer setup

I've been trying my best to start printing (the printer is HP DeskJet 1015) from Wandboard-Quad machine. However I am almost out of ideas.


What I have done is:

- added CUPS to the image

- added foomatic to the image

- added hplip to the image


Kernel version is 3.10.17.


What I achieved is a running cups installation where I could add a PPD file that i grabbed from hplip installation.

What's strange is that I am missing printer models while adding a printer in cups web interface (might be a missing cups-filters package but when I try to append it to the image, it can't be found)

When I try to setup the printer using hp-setup command, I get the information it cant find any device...


So far when I try to print, I get "unsupported format" error. What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? How to get all there parts working together? Is foomatic and hplip necessary or maybe CUPS is the only thing I need? Please help.
