Printer not working

Hi all, back again ! So, a few distros later,i came back to Endeavour/ Deepin BUT:
i’m struggling to install my printer …
HP Deskjet 2630 - cups is not working so i installed hplip & nothing !
Does anyone has a clue ?
I must say that a printer is quite useful these days…
AND i had no trouble with former distros !
Many thanks & have a nice day/night

Have you already looked at EnOS Wiki:


I normally use hp-setup for my hp printer. You can type hp-setup (ip address of printer) then it’ll pop up a box and you can follow instructions from there.

Make sure you have cups service enabled (reboot after)

Oh if its physical link you can just run hp-setup and pick to connect via cable.

The current version of the HPLIP solution is version 3.20.11

If you check the list of printers supported on hplip the Deskjet 2630 seems to not be in !

Bonjour @FLVAL …strange !
I un-installed then re-install hplip & no way !
Nothing appears…
I even get an icon saying i’m offline !
How come i have access to the forum ???
OK, another tea might do :smile:

Most HP printers will use hplip, some may use hpojAUR, while for multifunction laser printers hpuldAUR might be required. Some laser printers are also supported by foo2zjs-nightlyAUR.

@OdiousImp & @pebcak
So this xlfpy)ç"printer is recognized by …Cups !!!
Thanks for help, in fact i added what was mentioned by @pebcak, so it might very well work !
(Tea might have been of some help ! Ahahahah)
I’ll check AUR as said by @OdiousImp …Just in case !
Best & take good care


The cups enable command has changed. It is no longer org.cups.cupsd.service. It is now sudo systemctl enable cups.service
