    In such situations, one may also checkout 25dollarsupport its a Fix $ price Computer Tech support company which is quite reliable.

  7. I have a HP ENVY 5642, hplip-3.16.3 does not manage to find it, tested plugining it in both the front and back panels, it is listed using the lsusb command.

  8. OMG!! This worked WAY better for my HP 6830 than what I’d been using for the last 6 months. This ‘just worked’ with no issues. I now have FULL control of my networked 6830, whereas before I could only print in b&w, and margins were all messed up. The setup described above is great, although it took the better part of 20 minutes. I went with all the default (*) settings, except my software updater kept trying to run, so I had to select ‘Ignore’ at one point.

    Good job to all who were involved in this. I’m a die-hard Ubuntu user for 6 years now.

  9. I have downloaded the change for HP Deskjet 2543. I still can not get rid of the message that says the printer is not turned on!
