HPLIP still Problematic

Post by Ozo » Fri Jul 06, 2018 1:00 pm

HPLIP has only once actually provided wireless printer service for me and that was in LMC19T (that is Linux Mint Cinnamon 19Tara for those unable to decipher that). That proves it works but it does not at this time.

I do not know why I bother with loading the HPLIP toolbox as I have no problem attaching the cable. Still if I need that in the future I would like to enable wireless printing. I install it in Software Manager but it is not on the Menu. Not in the Menu Editor either. I uninstalled it and re-installed but it is the same non-result.

Both HPLIP and HPLIP-GUI are required so I installed HPLIP-GUI and the Toolbox is loaded. I removed and reinstalled HPLIP and HPLIP-GUI, then I followed the prompts in the toolbox to set up wireless printing. On selecting a print job, however; I get this (photo) ;
I have never seen this message before.

Notice the different headings of the two photos.

I reinstalled the HPLIP-Gui, used the toolbox to enable wireless printing, and when attempting to print (wireless) I get this with the print job on hold;
