PostPosted: Wed Dec 05, 2018 12:18 am    Post subject: HP printer installation. [SOLVED] Reply with quote

I'm having a bit of trouble with hplip, when I enter hp-setup, I get the printer options, and can choose my network printer, however, when it comes time to select the PPD, after I select it, nothing is selected, not allowing me to proceed.

I also entered hp-check, and it outputs the following:

Code:
# hp-check
Saving output in log file: /home/todd93/hp-check.log

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.18.6)
Dependency/Version Check Utility ver. 15.1

Copyright (c) 2001-15 HP Development Company, LP
This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.
This is free software, and you are welcome to distribute it
under certain conditions. See COPYING file for more details.

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the
HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies
are installed to successfully compile HPLIP.                                   
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro   
supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball   
has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.                     
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode   
will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).   

Check types:                                                                   
a. EXTERNALDEP - External Dependencies                                         
b. GENERALDEP - General Dependencies (required both at compile and run time)   
c. COMPILEDEP - Compile time Dependencies                                       
d. [All are run-time checks]

Solved by emerging all the required packages I could find, and then starting cups, adding it to the default run level, installed the network printer through the CUPS interface, it worked perfectly!

Thanks
