Any idea of how to solve this?

the server is down/has a timeout most of the time, so i always have to run the command sed -i "s/''/''/" /usr/share/hplip/base/ in order to be able to receive the proper HPLIP Digital Certificate..

Could you add pentium4 to the PKGBUILD? See

Recently I installed hplip for HP color laserjet pro mfp m283fdn device. Printing was fine, but scanner did not work: scanner device was found but connection could not be established.

It did work however after I installed hplip-plugin.

==> Does it makes sense to add hplip-plugin as dependency to hplip package?

What about adding arm6h support as well? Using this for already quite a while with a first version Raspberry Pi.

Found the same error as leo_sk when installing hplip-plugin from pamac manager (GUI).

When I tried to install the package from the command line (pamac build hplip-plugin) it showed the problem: some files already existed on the system.

I deleted the contents at the following locations and then I was able to properly install the hplip-plugin (3.20.3-2) package: /usr/share/hplip/plugin.spec /usr/share/hplip/data/firmware/* /usr/share/hplip/fax/plugins/* /usr/share/hplip/prnt/plugins/* /usr/share/hplip/scan/plugins/*

I believe that the problem was that I had previously ran hp-toolbox that tried to install the plugins (it actually said it succeeded).

Despite the fact that the package has been installed properly hp-toolbox keeps asking for the plugin to be downloaded (for an HP Laserjet P1102w).

However adding the printer from KDE's GUI worked flawlessly.

I get error : var/tmp/pamac-build-shaurya/hplip-plugin/PKGBUILD: line 24: cd: /var/tmp/pamac-build-shaurya/hplip-plugin/src/hplip-3.19.12-plugin: No such file or directory

Does the license for this driver allow it to be added to the official Arch Linux repositories?

hplip plugin supports arm32 and arm64 arch, so maybe they should be added

kaaposc commented on 2019-05-22 11:03

Maybe 'sane' should be added to dependencies because plugin installation fails in an uninformative way because it can't find '/etc/sane.d/dll/conf' file.
