HP Printer -Scanner install fails: HP can not detect printer

Postby dirkme » Mar 15th, '18, 00:01

Dear Mageia Friends,

after using Magaia 5 and 5.1 till 6 came out I am now again, having a look at it in a Virtualbox (first) and I can not get my HP laserPrinter Scanner installed.

HP can not detect printer on your network

Printing with the CUPS install works but in order to use full functionality i need the HPLIP drivers installed which fails in installed and updated version ;-(

Anybody can help?

please can you

1: tell us what printer/scanner model, as it helps in case someone reading this , has same and can confirm that it does work.
2: tell us how you went about the setup, so we can see if you aproached it wrong.

If I knew the model i could look it up and see if its a well known one , to be working.

I have an HP color printer myself and that works fine, in mga6 using hplip.

thats great that you have found that , but why would anyone read that youtube for an answer if they dont know
what model number of HP that has the fix for.
it would really help if you simply provide the information we ask for when posting answer, as its of little help when searching.
also mark the subject as solved.
if i dont say it someone will

What solution are you actually referring to? Supplying the IP adress for your printer, is that what you linked a 20 minute video for?
