So we got a new HP printer, with a scanner. Wished to use the scanner using simple-scan, no luck. Installed xsane, nope. Tried to reinstall hplip, the thing got removed but not reinstalled. Things got worse. In despair, went down the evil way of try-and-remove-this-and-that. Should have known better.
Now I removed cups and of course I can't even print- Not only that, but it can't be reinstalled:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
Code: Select all
cups : Depends: libcups2 (= 1.7.5-11+deb8u1) but 2.2.1-8~bpo8+1 is to be installed
Depends: cups-core-drivers (>= 1.7.5-11+deb8u1)
Depends: cups-daemon (>= 1.7.5-11+deb8u1)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I can't have my printer detected, nor can my Print Settings connect to any CUPS server as I have any and no other machine in the network is available.
What should I do?
