Further testing shows that only one of the printer descriptions does not work, namely the one that most accurately describes it, DeskJet 2620. Curious. Printing now successful thanks to your kind help. Many thanks.

First try failed. In the "Print" window there are the following printers listed :
 DeskJet 2600, HP_DeskJet_2600_series_C8A2E5, HP-DeskJet-2600-series, hpdeskjet2600all-in-one. First try was with the third listed. I moved to the second listed and printing was successful on a personal document. Is it possible to delete all printer names except the one  that worked?

hp-setup completed. Had to use USB connection. The printer appears to be connected to the computer but when attempt to print a personal document a sheet of clear paper emerges from the printer. It would appear that the document is not being fed to the printer.

Went well until I got to connecting the printer. Probably because the printer was set to Wi-Fi. Now set to wireless. However I'm told "...set-up failed. Please run hp-setup manually". I'm a bit wary of this. Can I do it automatically?

Reply to your code: No such file or directory. But I have "hplip-3.21.2" on my desk top and when accessed a large number of files comes up. There is a second "" which produces: "Do you want to run, or display its contents? When run is entered  "HPLIP 3-21-2 Self Extracting Archive" comes up. There are no "buttons" to press on this display.

By Wi-Fi I assume this is between computer and printer. The Wi-Fi setting is made using settings at the printer.
The reply to your piece of code is: No such file or directory.

Many thanks to you all. Have installed an HP Desk Jet 2620 which will be adequate for my modest needs. However having difficulty setting it up. Downloaded HPLIP 3.21.2 and connected WI-FI. Cannot get HPLIP tp run Any thought?

I think the problem may have been solved. A new file created in Libre Calc does print. The ones that do not are Microsoft Excel and Word files which were transferred by USB memory stick from another computer at the time of setting up Peppermint 9.

These files have now been labouriously copied (cut & copy doesn't seem to work) into Libre Calc and Writer and they print. Next job is to see whether internet material can be printed. According to Peppermint Settings>Hardware>Printers>Server>Settings this should be possible.
