Hi mike.desmo, how's it going?  I guess you can't get your printer to work.  Open a  terminal window with the following key strokes, Ctrl+Alt+t.  Copy the following command into the terminal window.
Code: [Select]
apt install hplip-gui -y
Hit enter and do the password thing if asked.  Note that passwords are entered invisibly.  Hit enter.  The HPLIP Toolbox should be located at: menu>Preferences>HPLIP Toolbox:  You should be able to locate your printer and set it up from there.  I hope this helps - have fun  ;)!!

Good morning,

I came across this topic as I was researching how to get my own printer installed and working...

I have encountered the following message when I try to intall HPLIP:

family@family-peppermint ~ $ apt install hplip-gui -y
[sudo] password for family:
sudo: unable to open /var/lib/sudo/family/1: No such file or directory
W: Not using locking for read only lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock
E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt/
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!  If I need to start my own topic regarding this problem I'm good with that too... just let me know.  :)
-Morgan

Hi rockmorg

When you run that command in the terminal make sure you have nothing else open like Synaptic Package Manager or Software Manager then try again



Good luck

Hi rockmorg, how's it going?  Welcome to the Peppermint Forum.  Open a terminal window and enter the following commands.
Code: [Select]
apt update && apt install hplip hplip-gui 
Hit enter and do the password thing if asked.  HPLIP toolbox will be found at: menu>Preferences>HPLIP toolbox.  I hope this helps  ;).

Be Aware - When running AndyInMokum's command (above) you'll be prompted for your password .. when entering your password in a terminal nothing will be echoed to screen (not even ******) but it is going in, so just type your password and hit enter.
