Installing jetadmin software for Solaris 2.51 and Up

The jetadmin software from Hewlett Packard is needed to interface between the Solaris workstation to all HP Inkjet plotters and Laser printers.

Before installing the jetadmin software for Solaris 2.51 and above you will need to make sure you have the HP jetadmin package file called SOLd621.PKG, and you will need to have super user privileges. If you don't have SOLd621.PKG you can download it from our ftp site:

ftp ftp.artwork.com
login: anonymous
password: your email
cd pub/get_from_here/gdsplot
Change to Binary mode
get the file SOLd621.PKG

Here is the procedure to install the jetadmin software:

Change directory to /tmp and make sure the package file (SOLd621.PKG ) is there. Become super user.


$ pwd
/tmp
$ ls -l
total 13040
-rw-r--r--   1 hagai    staff    6670848 May  9 15:02 SOLd621.PKG
$ su           
Password: 
#

Run the pkgadd command to start the installation. You should go with the defaults during the installation and the jetadmin will be extracted at the /opt/hpnp directory.


# /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d SOLd621.PKG

The following packages are available:
