Debian Hardware :: Unable To Set Up CUPS / HPLIP And Network Printers

Jan 12, 2012

I'm having a devil of a time trying to set up printing with 3 network printers: an HP Laserjet P4014n, an HP Laserjet 5200tn, and an HP Officejet Pro 8500 a909a. The three printers are connected directly to the office intranet and have their own ip addresses. The system I'm trying to configure is running Wheezy, and HPLIP and Cups are both installed. I have confirmed (from [URL] ....) that all printers are supported.

First, running "hp-setup -i" (hplip-gui is not installed -- I do not wish to pull in half of KDE simply to configure printing), the program only finds the 2 laserjets. Adding one of them creates a printer in CUPS with an "hp:/net/<printer name>" connection. Attempting to printing a test page through CUPS fails with message "/usr/lib/cups/backend/hp failed".

Interestingly enough, running "hp-probe -bnet" finds all three printers. However, running "hp-makeuri" with each printer's ip address fails with "error: Device not found". Hmmm, so HPLIP can apparently go from seeing everything to seeing nothing. Very useful.

Moving to the CUPs browser interface, clicking "Find New Printers" under the "Administration" tab also only shows the 2 laserjets, although each is listed three times(!). The only difference that I can see among the three versions of each printer is in the connection uri:

dnssd://<printer name>._printer._tcp.local/
dnssd://<printer name>._pdl-datastream._tcp.local/
dnssd://<printer name>._ipp._tcp.local/

Adding any one of them seems to work, although I do not understand why there are three of them (presumably different protocols, though what they are and the differences between them are, I don't know).

Logging into the officejet control panel and browsing at its network configuration, I see mDNS, SNMP, and WINS are disabled, although SLP is enabled. Looking in '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf', I see 'BrowseLocalProtocols' is set to only CUPS and DNSSD, so I add SLP and restart CUPS. No change; the officejet still doesn't show. I go back into the officejet control panel and enable mDNS (which, if I understand correctly, is essentially the same as DNSSD). Nothing; the officejet still doesn't show.

Slackware :: CUPS And HPLIP Duplicating Printer Entries - 13.1

Jul 18, 2010

I have an HP Photosmart USB printer that I configured with HPLIP (which seemingly "exports" into CUPS). All is well until the printer is turned off and then back on again sometime later: somebody, somewhere automagically adds the printer to CUPS so that I have two, count 'em, printers defined.


Some UDEV rule, some other thing?

Slackware :: CUPS / HPLIP - HP Deskjet 1050 Not Found

May 3, 2011

I'm trying to get HP DeskJet 1050 working on Slackware 13.1. When I plug it in to USB I can see it in lsusb. I've installed CUPS started it and went to add printer - but printer is not found. Ok, so I wanted to choose the series I have but 1050 is not listed in HP (is this driver missing?). So I went on to google on it and I got to HP website telling me to install HPLIP. Ok downloaded extracted and ./configure should run but it is not there (automatic script run has no Slackware listed).

Ubuntu :: Printer Won't Work After HPLIP Upgrade?

Jan 27, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. The Update Manager did an update to HPLIP, the Hewlett Packard Linux Internet Printing software, one or two days ago. When I went to print today, the HP Officejet 4500 printer showed up in Open Office when my mouse pointed to the printer icon. But, the printer wouldn't work. Then I noticed that the HPLIP Toolbox icon was moved from the Applications - Accessoires folder, to the System - Preferences folder. I reinstalled all the HPLIP software, using the Synaptic Package Manager. When I click on the HPLIP Toolbox & run the HP Device Manager, it says "No Installed HP Devices Found".I was a little surprised to see the software upgrade caused the HPLIP toolbox to move fromhe Applications folder to the System folder. Because of this, I suspect there may be a bug in the upgraded software? Is anyone else having this problem?

Ubuntu :: HPLIP Option Not Present When Setting Up Printer?

Apr 20, 2010

I just built a system and put a fresh install of ubuntu 9.10 on it. I have two other systems with 9.10 as well. On both of them the printer (an HP Officejet Pro 7680 set up directly on the network) is shown as an HPLIP printer with a URI that starts with hp:/net/ . When trying to set up this printer on the new machine the option for HPLIP is not present and the URI starts with dnssd://. I can only set up as and LPD Network Printer or an Appsocket/JetDirect network printer. Yes I have the hplip stuff installed on the new machine. My main concern is actually using the scanner function with Xsane. The other two machines scan just fine, the new one can't find any devices. I think this must be connected with the lack of HPLIP functions. This is with the AMD64 bit version of 9.10

Fedora Installation :: Use HPLIP-Gui But It Doesn't Even See The Printer At All

Jun 14, 2009

I did an upgrade using preupgrade program and it went very well. However, I have lost my HP 1020 printer. Can anyone assist with this. I tried to use HPLIP-Gui, but it doesn't even see the printer at all. The other problem is that I get the following message when trying to use Yumex:

OpenSUSE :: HPLip Stops Communicating With Printer?

Feb 10, 2010

Everytime I get HPLip working with my printer, it will only work until I shutdown the computer. On next restart, it no longer works and the only way to get it to work again is to delete the printer configs in hplip and re-create them!

Debian :: HPLIP Network Printer On Lenny System

Oct 18, 2009

I just installed HPLIP using Synaptic package manager. One of the configure parameters (shown by 'hp-check -r') is


Am I correct in assuming that this means that a network printer will not work? Is there a way to override this while still using synaptic package manager? Would I then be able to use a network printer?

I have my eye on the HP photosmart plus B209A - and it looks like HPLIP supports it (there is a ppd file for it).

Fedora Networking :: HPLIP Port Settings - Printer Not Recognized

Aug 5, 2010

I have recently installed Fedora 13 on my netbook. I wish to use my HP Officejet via the HPLIP utility. The problem with this is that when I have the firewall turned on, the printer is not recognised at all during setup. When the firewall is switched off, the printer is recognised. The printer in question is an HP Officejet 8500a which is connected via Ethernet cable to a wireless router. I would like to know if there are any network ports (that's used by HPLIP) that I could 'turn on' in the firewall that could let my computer recognise the printer.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: HPLIP With 11.2 64-bit - OfficeJet Pro L7680 - Don't Get The Printer To Work

Dec 5, 2009

after an update to 11.2 (from 11.1), 64 bit, I don't get the printer to work. I reinstalled the driver and checked in cups: it says that the printer is available and waiting for a job. When I send something to the printer, nothing happens. The priont job will be stopped immediately. The printer is properly connected: xsane finds the scanner, that is part of the printer, without a problem. The printer is also ok: I can copy documents, it just works fine.

Slackware :: --current - Hplip Won't Setup To Network Capable Multifunction Printer

Mar 14, 2011

I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue before I send a note off to Slackware on this.

The --current hplip package can't seem to actually complete the installation of a networked hp printer that has the printer physically plugged into the network.

The hplip app initially does detect the device, then I click next, then it says installation failed as it can't connect to the device.

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

I am however able to build, and run an older hplip that --current used a while back and it works splendid for adding a printer over the network.

I'm using version hplip-3.9.4b-i486-1 but I know that's not a big help to the project.

Software :: HPLIP - No Installed HP Devices Found

Jul 30, 2011

I have OPENsuse 11.4 64 bit. I installed 3.11.7 and performed hp-check -t and no problems were reported; yet I cannot seem to configure my HP printer. I work through hp-setup, following the instructions; it recognizes my network, recognizes the printer, says that it's managed to configure it, asks me to remove the usb connection and offers me the 'finish' button. When I click on the finish button it automatically pops up the the message 'no installed hp devices found' - the point where I started!

I am a member of groups sys and lp - hp-setup automatically configured this. Attached is the output from hp-check -t...

Fedora Hardware :: HP Printer - HPLIP Driver In The Repo Doesn't Work Correctly

Apr 22, 2010

I recently had problems with my HP printer in Fedora 12, where as I never had a problem with it in any other distrubution.... For some reason, the HPLIP driver in the repo doesn't work correctly... I don't know why... but I kept getting errors with "error: Printer queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again."

I tried every suggestion I found... which was installing extra dependencies, disabling firewall, disabling SELinux and a whole bunch of other stuff... but nothing worked... THEN finally I decided to use the HPLIP driver from the HP website... it was a .run file... and I executed it, and my printer has worked perfect eversince..... my question is.... has anybody successfully installed their hp printer from the hplip driver in the repo's..??? I don't know why it didn't work for me, and i've seen other fedora users complain of the same thing? maybe theres something wrong with the package? or its not pulling in a needed dependency? I don't know...

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Installed Hplip Version 2.84 Or Later For An X86_64 System?

Aug 27, 2009

Maybe this should be asked on the hplip website somewhere but I will ask it here. I am running CentOS 5.3 x86_64. The latest rpm version of hplip which I can find, and which is installed, is 1.67 but I need at least version 2.84 of hplip for my printer, an OfficeJet j6480.

Has anyone installed hplip version 2.84 or later for an x86_64 system ? Do either the hplip-2.8.4.run or hplip-2.8.4.tar.gz installation methods install hplip 2.84 for an x86_64 system, as opposed to just an x86 system ? Has anyone produced on he web somewhere a 2.84 or later hplip rpm for x86_64 that I can use rather try to figure out how to do it myself ?

Ubuntu :: Hplip No Improvement 10.04?

I see that the latest hplip is by default (3.10.2 in synaptic)great I thought but unlike the 3.10.2 version which was previously downloaded from the web(for 9.04) this default version STILL cannot produce photos without borders? In trying to install the web version (over the default version) which allows for exact printer settings. my printer then went haywire! Its for this reason only that I must go back to windows for HP essential. its a pity because this problem has been known for ages

Ubuntu :: Removing Hplip From 10.04?

Jan 28, 2011

I would like to upgrade my current hp printer driver 3.10.9 to the latest version 3.11.1 According to 'Google' the command to remove the driver is sudo apt-get remove hplip but when I type this in terminal I get:liz@lizubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get remove hplipReading package lists... DoneBuilding dependency treeReading state information... DonePackage hplip is not installed, so not removed0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 12 not upgraded.

I installed 3.10.9 as per the Launchpad website - it looks like Ubuntu is not 'seeing' hplip although it is installed and working. I guess I need a more subtle command to get rid of all the hp driver files. Or could I just install 3.11.1 over the top? (Would have thought best to remove 3.10.9 first).
