Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the
HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies
are installed to successfully compile HPLIP.
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro
supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball
has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode
will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).

Hi RayArdia,

Please try installing the latest hplip (3.10.6) release. You can download the latest hplip from http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html

Thanks for your support towards HPLIP

Thanks and Regards,
Srikanth Lokare

Hi Srikanth,
Thanks for help. Downloaded (apparently ) OK, however when I try to 'Run' I get this:-

ray@ray-laptop:~$ cd Desktop
ray@ray-laptop:~/Desktop$ sh hplp-3.10.6.run
sh: Can't open hplp-3.10.6.run
ray@ray-laptop:~/Desktop$

RayArdia (theallinsons) said : #4

Hi Srikanth,
I feel more than a little shame-faced to say that (even though I just didn't believe it could possibly be causing the trouble!) - I changed the printer cable, and the printer now works OK.
SO sorry to have taken up your valuable time on this matter, and remain grateful for you attempts to help.
Note to Self: RTFM and follow the Troubleshooter, even if you don't REALLY believe it!
Kindest regards, Ray
