HPLIP Plugin problem

Postby Danfinn » 2018-06-04 21:16

Just done a fresh install of Jessie and afaik it is fully updated. When trying to use my HP Laserjet P1102W it thows up a HPLIP plug in error and stops. I have tried it shared, plugged in direct using usb, but still no joy. However, my HP C6200 multifunction printer works perfectly. This is sitting on the ethernet with a fixed ip. I have been to the package manager thinking HPLIP was missing but it is there. :?

Any ideas folks. It all works perfectly on my Wheezy pc, which I was advised to update :(

Why are you not using Stretch? For one, they use different versions of the plugin (3.14.6-1+deb8u1 vs 3.16.11+repack0-3) respectively and secondly, you were advised to update to Stretch, not Jessie. I mean, you could backport the Stretch plugin in Jessie, but that would be weird, to say the least.

Many HP printers require that you download a PPD file for your printer through the HP GUI. Have you tried this yet?
