Adding HP Photosmart C5280 to DS209 NAS

After lots of trouble and searching for Linux drivers to get the printserver in the Synology DS209 to work properly I had given up on wireless printing at home. Being bored tonight though, I got into my hea to give it another try since I had a Diskstation Manager update for my NAS.

After the update I figured what the heck, lets see if they’ve added some more options that I can tweak and what do you know, there was!

So, to get this working I:

  1. Plugged printer USB into the DS209
  2. Open the external devices in the Diskstation Manager
  3. Mark the printer in the list and click Usb printer manager -> setup printer
  4. Use Network MFP (this wasn’t here when I last tried!)
  5. I enabled AirPrint (Haven’t seen this before either!)
  6. Setup Brand to HP and Driver to HP Photosmart 7150
  7. Add printer and install any needed drivers on computer
  8. Done!

The 5280 still isn’t officially supported it seems but now I’m printing from both my Mac, Hack and Windows machines without problems. Next fight is scanning :)

Add css style to your JavaDoc to make it readable

Been getting into Java more and more lately and JavaDoc must be the most horrific leftover from the 90’s web with purple/black/times new roman styling. Not only is it unreadable due lack of margins, line-heights and smooth contrasts. It is also butt-ugly. My favourite plugin for Chrome came to the rescue though. “Personalized Web” makes it so easy to add custom CSS to any site you want. So grab the plugin from Chrome app store and get a customised version below since the Sensemaya version is no longer available.
