SOLVED (sort of :) Outdated HPLIP driver package for my HP 410 Printer

Post by magar » Tue Jan 08, 2019 1:21 pm

My Mint 19 distro includes HPLIP version 3.17.10 and I need version 3.18.7 or better.
I downloaded version 3.18.12 from
https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imag ... g/gethplip
and executed the following command:
sh hplip-3.18.12.run
All well until I encountered this warning:
QUOTE
Enable the universe/multiverse repositories. Also be sure you are using the Ubuntu "Main" Repositories. See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu for more information. Disable the CD-ROM/DVD source if you do not have the Ubuntu installation media inserted in the drive.
UNQUOTE
Since i'm new to linux, i aborted the installation.
How should i proceed?

For now I'm using a double boot 64 bit Mint 19 Cinnamon (Tara) and Win 7 OS system, hoping to shed Windows soon!

I did this HPLIP installation yesterday, and encountered the same warning. Since I know I can always use Timeshift to get back to my previous state, I went ahead with the installation, followed all the prompts, and everything worked correctly.

Begs the question. Who, or what, told you you need 3.18.7 or better? Did you try ver 3.17.10? I've had no real issues with the version in the official repositories.
Kernel: 4.15.0-46-generic x86_64 bits
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop HP-ProBook-470-G2 8Gb RAM SSD
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
+ three other Mint machines
Out of my mind - please leave a message

I did a quick look and found that there is one "410" printer that requires 3.18.7, called "HP Ink Tank Wireless 410". Everything else with "410" in the name requires HPLIP 3.10.9 or older.

Take a look at the post linked in my signature for a couple of ways to get the HP drivers installed.

Just a general note to all asking questions about printers here: Just giving the brand and number of your computer often isn't enough. It could be an OfficeJet 410, or a DeskJet 410, a PhotoSmart 410, an Envy 100 d410, a PSC 410, and god-only-knows how many other possibilities. More information is needed for anyone to be able to help you.

Yeah, that's mine.
Thank you all for your help!
Will follow the suggestion of yertchuck trusting Timeshift as a fallback.

Why is HPLIP needed for printing with this device?

So I did and it worked fine, at least for the printing capability of my HP ITW 410.
Still missing the scanner part, but for now I'll use the Simple Scan app.
Thanks again!

If simple-scan works, you are not missing scanning functionality.
