II's a bad one when it comes to a modern printer
Why?
  • Modern printers do driverless printing.
  • CUPS will cease to support printer drivers in the near future.

Re: Install Printer

Habit, doing what I've done since LM17.3 II's a bad one when it comes to a modern printer. Even more so when it is recommended to users. Please bring yourself up-to-date with what is going on with printing on Mint. Had to chime in brian_p. Not sure I understand what you mean. I have a modern Brothe...

Re: HP all-in-one printer drivers

I don't have the slightest clue of what I'm supposed to be doing. Most of this is 'way over my head. If I were to start over, from where? That's the same question to myself that prompted my previous answer. I can only point you to trying the suggestions in former links of my post of how to work aro...

Re: Install Printer

Just replaced my Brother HL4140CN with a HL-L8260CDW today. Went to the Brother website, downloaded the debs for the driver and cups wrapper. Installed the driver and then the cups wrapper. Switched on the printer, changed the static IP address on the front panel and plugged in a network cable. Bef...

Re: Install Printer

My new laptop from The Linux Laptop store came with the latest release of Linux Mint 19. After installing the available updates, I connected to the Internet and plugged in my Brother HL-L2360DW printer with USB cable and into the wall power, turned on the printer, and the operating system soon reco...

This system has hplip v. 3.17.10+repack 0-5. On the linked site, I see 3.17.10.plugin.run and 3.17.10.plugin.run.asc Which one do I need? And, I do not understand the terminology re "directory" or how to do any of these operations. You need 3.17.10.plugin.run Do mkdir plugin Then cd plugin Now exec...

Re: If Printing Services Stops - No Fix - Just Reinstall

Sadly, because I'm not really happy with the 18.x Mint Cinnamon (or Mate), I have decided to try a different Linux. It seems that Ubuntu has a fork of Mate. The trial of their Beta seems nice so I will give the stable version a try - Maybe I can customize that to work for me. You are happy to chang...

Re: Scanner recommendation, please?

The SANE project rates this device as untested . You have tested it and found it not to work. One option is for you report this on the sane-devel mailing list. Another option is to use Canon's scangearmp2 offering. A third option is to post what you get with avahi-browse -rt _uscan._tcp when the dev...

Re: Scanner Epson L380 does not work Mint 19

I haven't any help to offer with the Epson software. However, xsane not recognising the scanner. is a possible bug in libsane on Linux Mint 19.1. The solution is to upgrade. Does that solve the issue?

Re: HP all-in-one printer drivers

When I type in that password and press enter, the response is, command not found. That same password works without incident when called for in any other context in the system. We will work round this (whatever is going on). Make a directory plugin and go to https://www.openprinting.org/download/pri...

The "password" being asked for is the one you use with the sudo command.
The only password I have in connection with Mint is the one used to log into the system, make administrative changes, etc. Is that the same password used with the sudo command?
Indeed it is.

Re: HP all-in-one printer drivers

Followed prompts etc., to the point where the dialog asks for a password. I assume the entry wanted would be my password for the Mint OS- when I entered that, the response was, command not found. Totally unexpected. I am not prepared to debug your Mint installation (others might be) when it comes t...

The system is telling me that the software is already installed:
You know it isn't because there isn't any plugins directory in your ls -l ... output. In any case, a reinstallation does no harm.

Re: configuring HP photosmart C4740 for Linux Mint 19.2 laptop computer

I just tried hp-wificonfig this morning and everything goes along great (prints test page fine) UNTIL I am prompted to unplug the USB cable then from that point forward will NOT print anything. I am really to the point of thinking that there is some hardware or firmware problem with this printer. S...
