For the benefit of anybody else setting up an HP printer in Solus, this is what I did:
I opened the Solus Software Center, searched for hplip
and then installed it.
Next, I used this HP link:
https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imag ... l/download
I downloaded the hplip tarball (hplip-3.12.6) to my Desktop (your software may be downloaded to your Downloads folder instead
) and opened Terminal.
Code: Select all
tar xvfz hplip-3.12.6.tar.gz
I then switched on my printer and plugged its USB cable into my laptop.
I then ran:
I selected USB, my HP 8620 was detected and I pressed “Add printer”.
