HPLIP Wifi adater not turned on

Post by ebazz » Sat Oct 12, 2019 4:57 pm

I'm running Mint/ Cinnamon ver 19.2 and I'm having a problem with HPLIP installation. I keep getting an error stating that the wifi adapter is not turned on and that the version of CUPS is not compatible. I'm using an HP ENVY Photo 6255 printer. From my research both the printer and Mint 19.2 are compatible with the latest driver from HP. I'm always on line with the internet so there is nothing wrong with my wifi card. Can anyone help?

Open Package Manager, search HPLIP in it. Install all it gives you.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
