Re: Can't scan from new HP printer and HPLIP 3.20.5 on Mint 18.3

I have never known that command to fail. However, HPLIP 3.20.5 has been giving all sorts of trouble recently, so maybe there is a first time for everything. :( First give what you get for file hplip-3.20.5-plugin.run and then download the file again from https://www.openprinting.org/download/printdr...

Re: [SOLVED] Problem scanning with my new Lexmark mc2535adwe printer/scanner

Hello gittiest, Good to hear you are satisfied with sane-airscan. What device gave you trouble? I'll report success upstream. Unless you have done it, of course. @jerkins: Glad for you too. Having an output from avahi-browse -rt _ipp._tcp is an excellent indicator that driverless scanning will work ...

Re: Setup Scanner Canon Pixma TS 9550

Thank you brian_p this has done the trick for me! Very pleasing. sane-airscan (a SANE backend) allows you to use simple-scan and xsane; the Canon software, scangearmp2, doesn't, as it is a frontend only. A favour please, supersalbai. Would you post what you get for scanimage -L avahi-browse -rt _ip...

Re: Setup Scanner Canon Pixma TS 9550

With the device connected to the network (wireless or ethernet) sane-aircan has worked well for 100% of the users who have installed it. don't know if this is hijacking a thread,but,will it work with USB connection too? For a normal USB connection, I think the answer is "no". What is your device an...

Brian: Thanks again. And thank you, dhfx, for the sound information. As will be seen, it leads us an explanation and a solution.

Re: Suddenly cannot print from certain apps (CUPS update?)

Hope this is useful. Very useful, dhfx. Thanks. I see nothing untoward in any of the information you supplied; it all seems perfectly normal. And yet you cannot print from Firefox etc. I have changed my mind - I do not think this is a print dialog matter but a possible printer firmware issue. Let's...

Re: Suddenly cannot print from certain apps (CUPS update?)

The issue is not likely to be CUPS itself but possibly lies in the different way the print dialogs behave. Firefox etc use the GTK print dialog; LO doesn't. Diagnosis may not be the easiest of tasks, but let's give it a try. There is a fallback plan to get you printing. Give the outputs of lpstat -l...

Re: HP Network Printer woes

Did you change the IP address of the printer when you connected it to your Desktop machine? Nothing should have changed, but that's my next step. If anything maybe resetting the printer config will help. I do not think I am the only one who has no idea why setting up a print queue on one machine sh...

Not using as a network printer (don't even know how to do that)
You would be doing yourself a favour by putting the HL-L2390DW on the network. The printer's control panel should help with doing this. On Mint 19.x the device would be automatically detected and set up.

Re: HP color printer

Please give what you get for lpinfo when the LaserJet is connected by USB and when it is connected to the network. It doesn't matter what HPLIP utilities are installed or what other method is chosen for setting up the printer; unless there are meaningful outputs to this command, printing will not ta...

Re: HP color printer

I did a quick install (W10) to test the printer, no problems at all, works perfectly
That's satisfying, but engaging with the advice you have received would be more satisfactory.
