Mint 19 mate 64-bit : problem printing HP 4260

Post by mysterieux » Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:39 pm

I install the Mint 19 mate 64 bits which is working Ok but I have problems with my printer HP deskjet d4260.
I install it many ways : via the box, via usb, via CUPS, via ipp, ... : it all seems to work well : At the end of the installaltion i can print a page as a test, but impossible to print anything else !!!
I tried some solutions found on this forum which seems to be good for me :
- sudo hp-check -r : where i found the missind dependencies python3-devel and python3-pyqt4-dbus that i couldn't install (sudo apt-get install .....)

If someone can help me to install my driver it would be great

I hope that it will work because this Mint is working fine for the rest but i need my printer to work

Thanks in advance

Hello mysterieux and welcome to Linux Mint Forums,
go to synaptic package manager and install hplip-gui
once install do a search for Hp toolbox in the menu and use that to install the printer. see if that works.

Hello kc1di,

Thanks for your answer. I've already tried to install it via Hplip but it does exactly the same thing : it install it OK, enable to print a test page and other stuff to follow. But when i restart my PC the printer HP4260 is still installed but no way to print anything (even test page can't be print anymore !)

When i try - sudo hp-check -r, i stil got the missind dependencies python3-devel and python3-pyqt4-dbus that i couldn't install (sudo apt-get install .....)

What could I do ?

Thanks in advance
