Since a few days my pages are printing blue. when printing test pages from the printer, printing is normal, but from the computer, all pages print out with a cyan background. I cannot discover any setting. The only thing I can think of is to uninstall and reinstall the printer, which I have not done...

now all I need to do is delete the timeshift backup from the SSD to free up that space...

I had one app that I cannot get in any kind of a linux version... so I ran it on Wine for a while, until it started misbehaving. It would flash on the screen when I started it, but not stay. Uninstall, reinstall, no improvement. Finally I gave up and downloaded the trial version of Crossover, and lo...

Re: HPLIP HP OfficeJet Pro 8630[SOLVED]

thanks... it's about more than finding the answers I like. My hplip was working for more than a year, and then this unexplained corruption happened, which is very disconcerting.

Re: HPLIP HP OfficeJet Pro 8630[SOLVED]

Wow, thanks so much, that finished it up.

The only remaining mystery is why my hplip ended up getting corrupted. To a lesser degree, why the newer version of hplip blew up on me...

I guess I always like to have ALL the answers ;-) eventually you usually always figure it out.

Re: HPLIP HP OfficeJet Pro 8630

If I try that, here's what I get:

quote
The Link "hp-setup" is Broken. Move it to Trash?

This link cannot be used, because its target "../share/hplip/setup.py" doesn't exist.

Cancel Move to trash

unquote

but if I do try to move to trash, permission is denied.
