Try deleting the printer in "Printers".

Then installing hplip-gui
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
then look for "HPLIP Toolbox" in your menu, and add your printer using that.

Should have said Peppermint 9.
Cannot delete Printer.
In Terminal cannot insert password

Go to

Menu > Settings > Printers

right-click on your printer .. select "Delete"



When entering your password into the terminal nothing will be echoed to screen (not even ******), but your password **IS** going in, so just type your password then hit enter.

Right clicking has no effect. However, HPLIP Status Service--HP Device Manager--Configure--Select printer/FAX queues to Remove offers a Remove button bottom right. Does this remove the printer?

Incidentally my version of HPLIP is 3-17 -10 which is not the latest.

In "System Settings/Printers":   if right clicking does not provide a menu (strange), then highlight the printer (left click on it) then click "Printer/Delete"
OR
In HP-Device-Manager;  highlight the printer in the left-hand column then click the red button at the top (next to the green button) to remove the printer.  Works in version 3.16.3

Printer has been removed and re-installed. Cannot print Test Page.

Are you sure this printer is working, because the HP Photosmart C4280 is supposed to be fully supported by hplip ?

Yes, printer working perfectly using another laptop. On the peppermint one I keep getting "Device communication error (5012)

Have you set it up as a network printer ?

I have selected "Peppermint Settings-Hardware-Printer-Server-Connect-Help-Troubleshoot-Choose printer-Print Test Page" which it does. Have also printed a personal file.

Next job is to see whether I can print from internet and e-mail.
