Download & Install HPLIP 3.22.4

HP provides official .run installer for all Linux users, simply download the package “hplip-x.xx.x.run” from the link page below:

Then right-click on the Downloads folder, select “Open in Terminal”, and finally run the installer via command:

./hplip-3.22.4.run

Follow the on screen prompts, and re-plug your printer when everything’s done successfully.

Install HPLIP 3.22.4 for Ubuntu 22.04:

The installer so far does not support Ubuntu 22.04. If you do require the new version, here’s how to manually install dependencies and built the package (Thanks to fostips).

Firstly, run the previous “./hplip-3.22.4.run” command will generate the source folder in Downloads. Right-click on it and select “Open in Terminal” to open terminal.

Next, run command to manually install dependency packages:

sudo apt install --assume-yes libcups2 cups libcups2-dev cups-bsd cups-client libcupsimage2-dev libdbus-1-dev build-essential ghostscript openssl libjpeg-dev libsnmp-dev libtool-bin libusb-1.0-0-dev wget python3-pil policykit-1 policykit-1-gnome python3-pyqt5 python3-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 python-gi-dev python3-dev python3-notify2 python3 python3-reportlab libsane libsane-dev sane-utils xsane libavahi-client-dev libavahi-core-dev avahi-utils

Finally, run the commands below one by one in this terminal window to configure and build HPLIP (with source folder as working directory):

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-qt5 --disable-qt4
make
sudo make install

It works in my case on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

Uninstall HPLIP 3.22.4

To remove the driver package, you need to first open terminal with source folder as working directory (See the last picture). When it opens, run the command to start uninstall script:

sudo ./uninstall.py

Same to the installing process, it will asks few questions to confirm during the process.

HPLIP, HP’s inkjet and laser printers drivers for Linux, released 3.21.12 a few days ago with new Linux Distros support.

The released added Fedora 35, MX Linux 21, and Elementary OS 6 support. Since HPLIP package in these Linux Distros’ own repositories is always old, users may now easily install the latest version via the official script by HP.

And, nothing else in the release except for the new systems support.

Download & Install HPLIP 3.21.12

To get the software package, download the “hplip-x.xx.x.run” file from the link page below:

Next, search for and open a terminal window from start menu. And, run command to grant executable permission, and run the installer script to install it:

cd ~/Downloads && chmod +x hplip-*.run && ./hplip-*.run

Just follow the terminal output and answer questions. It will build and install the software automatically.

Tip 1: For those still using Python 2 and getting into python-pyqt5 dependency issue, see this workaround.

Tip 2: For unsupported Linux systems, you may manually install dependencies and built from the tarball. For Ubuntu based systems, there’s a tutorial teaches how to compile.

How to Remove HPLIP:

Running the “hplip-x.xx.x.run” installer will generate a source folder in user Downloads directory. If you don’t see it, re-run it via command:

~/Downloads/hplip*.run --target ~/Downloads/hplip

Then in file manager, go to “Downloads”. Right-click on ‘hplip’ folder and select ‘Open in Terminal’, finally run the uninstall script in pop-up terminal window:

sudo python3 uninstall.py

That’s all. Enjoy!

3. Finally, run the installer to start installing the Linux driver:

~/Downloads/hplip*.run

Follow the terminal output to answer some questions. When everything’s done, plug or re-plug your HP printer and enjoy!

For Ubuntu with python-pyqt5 dependency issue, this tutorial may help.

How to Remove HPLIP:

The release somehow does not create source folder while installing process. You may re-run the installer with --target flag to extract source:

~/Downloads/hplip-3.21.10.run --target ~/Downloads/hplip-3.21.10

When you see the new folder generated in Downloads, type q or press Ctrl+C to quit installer.

And, finally run the uninstall script from that folder will remove the driver:

How to Install HPLIP 3.21.2 in Ubuntu:

1. To install the software, download the package “hplip-3.21.2.run” from the link below:

HPLIP Download Page

2. Then open terminal either via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for “terminal” from app launcher. When it opens, run command to give executable permission:

chmod +x ~/Downloads/hplip-3.21.2.run

3. Finally run command to start installing the driver:

./Downloads/hplip-3.21.2.run

Follow the terminal output and answer the questions. If everything goes OK, plug or re-plug your HP devices and enjoy!

Due to Pyqt5 dependency issue, the package does not install in Ubuntu 20.04.
As a workaround, choose “custom” as the installation mode, answer “no” to disable ‘Graphical User Interfaces (Qt5)’, and say “no” when installing the python-reportlab package.

HP Linux Imaging and Printing

HPLIP, HP developed printer and scanner drivers for Linux, released version 3.20.11 a few days ago.

Different to previous releases, HPLIP 3.20.11 does not include new HP printers support. It only adds support for Ubuntu 20.10 and Debian 10.6. And it fixed usb print issue for ipp supported printers for Ubutnu 20.04, Ubuntu 20.10 and Linux Mint 20.

There are also known issues that ppd browsing is failing sometimes while doing hp-setup in Ubuntu 20.10. Basically few times it is failing to fetch ppd list from cups server. So you might face the same issue while testing. And hp-toolbox will not work for ippusbxd printers in Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 20.10 and LinuxMint 20.

And not sure if it’s only me or for everyone, while it works on Ubuntu 20.10, HPLIP 3.20.11 does not install on my Ubuntu 20.04 since it tries to install the old python-pyqt5 as dependency library.

How to Get HPLIP 3.20.1 in Ubuntu:

1. To install the software, download the package “hplip-3.20.11.run” from the link below:

HPLIP Download Page

2. Then open terminal either via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for “terminal” from app launcher. When it opens, run command to give executable permission:

chmod +x ~/Downloads/hplip-3.20.11.run

3. Finally run command to start installing the driver:

./Downloads/hplip-3.20.11.run

Follow the terminal output and answer some questions. If everything goes OK, plug or re-plug your HP devices and enjoy!
