Printer setup for HP 4520 [Solved]

I have a HP envy 4520 printer and have installed hplip and I still can’t get it to work! How to solve this problem? It want a ppd file and I don’t have it.
Many distros have auto setup for this printer. How to set up printer?

I get this error:

qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
Searching... (bus=usb, search=(None), desc=0)
error: No PPD found for model envy_4520 using old algorithm.
error: No appropriate print PPD file found for model envy_4520_series

What should I do?`

Are you connected through usb? You’ll likely need to install cups and start the service as per the wiki. I’d suggest restarting after that for good measure.


Thanks. Printer is working. :slight_smile:
