  1. I have Linux Mint 17.1 w/ KDE 4.? and an installed hplip 3.15.7, but it was installed with my old printer, which just died. I bought an HP Officejet Pro 6830, but I can’t download the -.run file. Everytime I try to download it, regardless of which page I click the link to it from, I get a -.bin file. What’s wrong? Can you help?

  2. Btw, I’m satisfied that 3.15.7 does support the 6830. And I no longer have the run folder that came with 3.15.7’s -.run file (I didn’t expect the printer to die and didn’t think I’d need it again; I do have that file), so I can’t just reinstall it.
