HP Laserjet P1606dn
« on: 2019/01/28, 21:10:09 »
My HP Laserjet P1606dn was running fine until recently.  After updates I need to install the plugin, but after the last it seems that I cannot do it.
The process goes smoothly, it says the update was successful, and when I click OK I get:
Code: [Select]
error: Failed to install Plug-in.

Here is the full run:

So, I tried removing the printer and adding it again.  Similarly, it says successful, but then it asks (in a loop) to install the plugin:

I've tried: manually downloading the plugin, removing $HOME/.hplip, purging and reinstalling hplip, but the result is always the same...
Any suggestions?

Searching this problem alone is a pita, so many problems (arch,ubuntu,etc), I am not sure where to begin, I don't own a HP printer, 4 different threads say installed 4 billion times and then it worked.

I actually can't find a good answer, and many say

http://snapshot.debian.org/package/hplip/3.18.12+dfsg0-2/
I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

Free speech isn't just fucking saying what you want to say, it's also hearing what you don't want to fucking hear

did you try it as ~# root? or only as ~$ user?

Although I think the problem is far from resolved, I can now print.
After failing with 'hp-setup' (as seen above), I've added the printer with CUPS.  For now, it seems to be printing fine.  I worry about what will happen next time it asks me to install/update the plugin, but I will wait to see...  I haven't tried to do anything with hplip directly for now.

I will leave this thread open for a little longer.  If after a while everything continues to work, I will mark it as solved.
Thanks to all who offered help here!

I have an HP Laserjet P1606dn -- really a great printer if you don't need the color.

Years ago I had quite a few of the "filter failed" errors, and so I wrote myself a configuration note about it.  Here is what the note says:

Quote
Alt-F2 "kdesu hp-plugin -u --required --reason 0"


give password, accept default "download from hp server" choice, etc.

or use interactive (text) mode:

~/$ dbus-launch hp-plugin -i --required --reason 0


The firmware lives at /usr/share/hplip/data/firmware"

Thanks, dibl.  I really appreciate it.
I assume you are not having any problems with it, so it must be something on my end.

I will keep it in mind if I get the problem again.  Right now I am afraid of trying anything...
Could let me know what you get from:
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/share/hplip/data/plugins/
All I see is "license.txt".  I was expecting the plugin to be there, but maybe not...

Code: [Select]
don@dibl-HP350:~$ ls /usr/share/hplip/data/plugins/
license.txt
don@dibl-HP350:~$

The plugins are in /usr/share/hplip/data/firmware.

EDIT: I just tested the CLI method.  In a user terminal:

Code: [Select]
dbus-launch hp-plugin -i --required --reason 0
After I entered "d" to download from HP, I got this error

Quote
error: Unable to recieve key from keyserver
Do you still want to install the plug-in? (y=yes, n=no*, q=quit) ?

I entered "y" and it proceeded to get the plugin, put up the license for me to accept, ask for the root password, and finished successfully.
