This is free software, and you are welcome to distribute it

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).

Done.
   **********************************************************************

4) I am trying to install drivers for my HP LaserJet 1020. I have a new Toshiba laptop running Ubuntu 12.XX and it detected the printer and installed drivers with no problem. It prints fine.

   When I tried my Dell Latitude D830 running Ubuntu 10.04, I get the following error message:

   "error: Plug-in file does not match its digital signature. File may have been corrupted or altered. Error code: 2"

The installation is aborted (before license agreement, etc.). The printer icon shows up when I do

   System --> Administration --> Printing

but it will not print.

5) I get identical results whenever I plug the printer into the USB port.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting the issue in HPLIP. To help us understand and analyze the issue please follow following things.
=> Download and install the latest HPLIP release from http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/install/index.html (automatic) or http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/index.html (manual if automatic does not work)

=> Reconfigure print queue with the commands in the terminal mentioned below.
       => system-config-printer (remove all print queues)
      => su -c "hp-plugin" (This will download right plugin)
       => hp-setup (It should not be run in a root mode. This command is adding print queue, make sure you select ppd name having "-ps" or "hpcups" substring)
=>Try printing now.

If problem does not get solved then please run following command to capture the logs and send the logs.

$su -c "hp-logcapture"

**Please use "Create a bug report" to attach the logs as "Ask a Question" does not provide the file attachment option

Thanks Sanjay Kumar, that solved my question.

Sanjay,

    Thanks. I went to the web site in your first step and did an automatic install. When that process completed, I had a working printer. I did not have to do anything else. Thanks again.
