Dependency always missing: pyqt4? [hplip-3.20]

Postby Kowa92 » 2020-06-08 20:45

Hello,

i've some problem when installing hplip-3.20.5.
In fact, the installer doesn't recognize these following dependencies (both if I choose to avoid installing the qt4 gui in custom mode and in automatic default mode):

- pyqt4-dbus
- pyqt4

I use debian as os. I've just installed these qt4 rquired package (that should be ok):

Code: Select all
python-qt4 is already the newest version (4.12.1+dfsg-2+b1).
python-qt4-dbus is already the newest version (4.12.1+dfsg-2+b1).


And these qt5 rquired package (that should be ok):

Code: Select all
python-pyqt5 is already the newest version (5.11.3+dfsg-1+b3).
gtk2-engines-pixbuf is already the newest version (2.24.32-3+rpt1).
python-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 is already the newest version (5.11.3+dfsg-1+b3).


But the problem is not solved.

-> Where i'am wrong?
-> Why if I choose to avoid installing the qt4 gui in custom mode it keep asking me for the qt4 package?

******************************************************************************

In my opinion there is some bug in the installer because in the end it always asks for the dependencies of qt4 (when in reality it should be ask me only of qt5 ones)..

Thanks to everyone.

Debian 10 doesn't have those dependencies. Why do you not install hplip from the Debian repository?
https://packages.debian.org/buster/hplip
Code: Select all
apt install hplip

Since I have have been using hplip for many years, now 3.20.5, without a problem, I was immediately drawn to your post.

Since you say you are using a Debian system, may I inquire why you are not using apt directly or any of its front ends, to install hplip?

I did notice the word "raspberry".

Perhaps that's your "bug".
There's no drama in my sid......

Because my printer is supported from hplip >= 3.19.12. That is currently of Debian 'stable' is useless for me. That of Debian 'unstable' (sid) (that the last version of hplip) would be useful but it contaminates my installed stable version with over 350 unstable packages. I want to keep only the stable ones.. or at most only those strictly necessary (i.e. hplip and its dependencies).
