Problem with my HP Deskjet 1515

Hi everyone! After many tries, I wasn’t able to set my printer up. So many issues running HPLIP. Any suggestion?

This are the errors I get after using hp-doctor and hp-check :

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:

  1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies are
    installed to successfully compile HPLIP.
  2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball has the proper
    dependencies installed to successfully run.
  3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).

Check types:
a. EXTERNALDEP - External Dependencies
b. GENERALDEP - General Dependencies (required both at compile and run time)
c. COMPILEDEP - Compile time Dependencies
d. [All are run-time checks]

Sorry for bothering guys… I’ve found the solution. If somebody has this problem, this is the solution:

  1. Install CUPS: sudo pacman -Sy cups
  2. Start and enable (make it start after boot) the CUPS printing service: sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd && sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cups
  3. Install HP Linux Imaging and Printing: sudo pacman -S hplip
  4. Install a driver plug-in via sudo hp-setup -i . Root privileges are important here, otherwise it says “error: No device selected/specified or that supports this functionality.” when selecting a connection method. During installation of the plug-in, I selected the default option each time.
  5. Install system-config-printer , a GUI tool to configure printers.
  6. Start system-config-printer and click the button to add a printer. Select your printer and choose HPLIP as the connection method (see screenshot).
  7. system-config-printer should now allow you to print a test page.
  8. In order for a GTK application like Evince to show your printer in the printing dialog, you need to install gtk3-print-backends as well.

(Solution found in https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/359531/installing-hp-printer-driver-for-arch-linux )

Good Luck

We also have a recent updated WIKI for printer setup including the hints for HP-Printers :wink:

Thank you so much J. How do I mark this as solved? :thinking:
