    It remains complaining: “Unable to recieve key from keyserver” and if I click “Yes” then it keeps looping the plugin install which always results with the same error.

    Same issue seems the keyserver fails

  3. The compilation failed for me. I use ubuntu 19.10, which it said might be a problem. “make” fails with a cryptic comment:

    warning: ignoring return value of ‘int getdomainname(char*, size_t)’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]
    440 | getdomainname(m_JA.domain_name, sizeof(m_JA.domain_name) – 1);
    | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    make: *** [Makefile:7211: hpcups-HPCupsFilter.o] Error 1

    If you want the entire log, let me know. I re-ran make clean, then make, several times.
