How can I install HPLIP software in elementary OS? HPLIP software is not available in their website for elementary as specific. For Loki, which version of Ubuntu should I choose?
I tried hard to install my HP Laserjet P1102w using HPLIP (3.17.11) but always had error on dependencies. I have running Elementary Os Loki on my laptop.
This video was for great help, but not for the beginning, just for the part of HP GUI at the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UH0-mnpGJI
This is what I did:
A. In a terminal I define the password for root privilegies (sudo passwd root), beacuse in some point you are going to need it. In my case, I set the same password that I have for my user account.
B. I use synaptic (you can install it from AppCenter)
C. In synaptic search for HPLIP and install both "HPLIP" and "HPLIP GUI"
D. In the Applications menu, open HPLIP Toolbox.
And that is. It works so fine to me.
