Today's upgrade of python3 to 3.6.3-1 will cause removal of hplip and hplip-gui.  Afterward, hplip is not installable:


Code: [Select]
hplip : Depends: python3 (< 3.6) but 3.6.3-1 is to be installed

Note: with printer-driver-hpcups installed, it is still possible to print to an HP printer (not sure about all models).  So removal of hplip and hplip-gui is not fatal to your ability to print, it just forces you back to the CUPS for administration.

My brand new patience LXQt install is waiting for its first dist-upgrade, 3 days now, and I'm still getting warnings that hplip will be removed.  Oh well, we'll try again later today.

BTW - KDE patience bombed on this EEEpc 1015px, but LXQt, is working great. It also has a great look about it.

Over 1000 updates listed, I hope that first update goes clean.

I tried an apt resolver to try to get around the problem, but it came up with errors.

# apt-get --solver=aspcud dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Can't call external solver 'aspcud' as it is not in a configured directory!

This was always my goto instead of hold.  I have about 7 applications to remove that have to do with printing.  Since I haven't played with SID for quite a few months I don't know if the resolver is obsolete or not, but, even if it is, I'd rather wait till python 3 gets into the repos, rather than put 7 programs on hold. 

Thanks for the reply.

KDE - I would have lost hplip this morning, I just tried again and it went through without removing it.

Confirmed -- hplip and hplip-gui are installable on my KDE rig as of 1400 Saturday U.S. Eastern zone. I am marking it solved -- if others still have a problem with hplip tomorrow, I suggest a new thread under "Software" as I believe the original python dependency issue has been fixed.

Thanks for the update, now I'm off to do my big dist-upgrade.  I still have a few removals, but, they don't seem to be a problem.  I'll list them here just in case:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  foomatic-db-gutenprint ijsgutenprint libgles1-mesa libnomacscore3
  libnomacsgui3 libnomacsloader3 qt5-style-plugins

Thanks again.

Thanks for checking dibl.  I appreciate it.

The big DU went through flawlessly, and I'm happy, This LXQt has got to be the best DM I've had on this little machine in a while. So far everything works perfectly.  Debian LXDE was the last OS on here, but, wasn't as polished as patience is.

Who said Sid was dangerous ... Heh.
