Re: HP DeskJet 2655

sorry to hear of your continuing problems; at heart, this 2655 doesn't appear on hplip's page of supported printers; .. it must be so close to others; but close seems not enough to make it work; Everyone sings HP's praises; you do see posts with issues; If you still have the Canon, there is a progra...

Re: Pixma MX479

googling on your error, if you go up to Home folder from the Menu at bottom left; when Home Folder opens; go 3 down in left column; and look for the /etc folder and open it and look for cups and then look for cupsd.conf.O which you can open with LibreOffice and see if there is text there; sometimes ...

first,

Code: Select all

lpinfo -v
and if you copy what you get, and paste it into a reply; inside code tags: the 5th icon from the left in the above line.

then

Code: Select all

dpkg -l cnijfilter*
and do the same; thanks

Re: HP 1200 Laserjet Printer Disappeared

so this printer needed an earlier version of hplip; so what you have is fine; if you open a terminal (hold down the control and alt and t keys all at once); and type hp-setup in the terminal; hplip should check things and should set up the printer; if it doesn't work, if you also do lpinfo -v and lp...

lpinfo forbidden message is very strange

<user> ~ $ lpinfo -v lpinfo: Forbidden this is very strange; my take is there must be some permissions issues on your account; hopefully someone familiar with permissions can spot this and suggest how to check things out; you should NOT need to invoke sudo to get lpinfo (On the other hand, it is a ...

HP produce a bewildering variety of devices; I can't see this on the "supported printers" list on their hplip website unless you try contacting them directly; they have been updating hplip a lot in recent times If you right-click on the icon for the HP, what does it say in MAKE & MODEL ? what does l...

Re: Hardware Problems with Kernel 4.15.0-20 and -21

no good reason to upgrade to newer kernels unless there is a security patch.
so do folks need to go away and check each time a new kernel is offered; if it has a security patch please? (there's lots of stuff I don't know)

Re: HP DeskJet 2655

so thanks Keith; you said I removed cups, and uninstall, and purged hplip. Then reinstalled. and now you have purged it again; so my reading is dpkg finds no entry for hplip so is cups reinstalled; and have you installed the 3.18.6 version of hplip; if it was, it should appear in the dpkg -l hplip c...
