hp-setup can't find models.dat

#1 Post by aantoon »

I'm running a updated version of BullsEye 5.10.0-6-amd64

models.dat is located in

but hp-setup can't find it? I looked into hp-setup but find no entry for "models.dat"
cups say

Code: Select all

Since my previous post I purged hplip and removed all mention of it by hand. I then installed hplip and hplip-gui from synaptic. I have tried every link google gives on "Unable to locate models.dat" but no joy.
Help is greatly appreciated.
