As a basic check whether the administrator functions work:
Which output do you receive when you open a terminal window and execute the command

sudo id

Most probably there will be a request to enter your password as confirmation, and when you type it, you will not see any feedback (no echo, not even '*' placeholders), just 'blind' type your password and press the enter key.

Pierre (pkawak) said : #7

That works. Gives me a prompt:
[sudo] password for pierrekawak:
When I input my password:
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)

Hope that's what you wanted.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #8

When you install hplip, you should get a similar request to enter your password.
Just do the same there.

Pierre (pkawak) said : #9

As I said, I've done that but it won't take my password

Sorry for my impatience! Thanks for still helping.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #19

There must be something unexpectedly strange in the setup of your system, such that the HPLIP installer does not correctly identify your operating system and gives error messages "Permission denied", "Operation not permitted" at the beginning.

What output do you receive for the commands

uname -a
lsb_release -crid
python2.7 -c "import platform;print platform.dist()"

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #23

Python correctly identifies your operating system; now the question is why the HPLIP installer thinks that you are on Debian.

Ok, let's start again from the beginning.

Or directory. The Downloads directory in home/

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #27

Ok. Now follow the installation instructions - step by step https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/install/install/index

Open a terminal window and issue the commands

cd Downloads
sh hplip-3.19.6.run

If the installer still wrongly identifies your system as being Debian, abort the installer and try again in custom mode (answering 'c' to one of the first questions).

Finally copy/paste all output into the question document.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #36

As you can see, the directory hplip-3.19.6 has got wrong ownership.

Try changing ownership to yourself to the directory and all files in it.

Pierre (pkawak) said : #37

That didn't help and the installer couldn't run at all.

I reinstalled hplip and now we're back at square one (except with 3.19.8 this time):

Now try the following hack:

edit the file :~/Downloads/hplip-exp/hplip-3.19.8/installer/distros.dat

In line 6279 change from
su_sudo=su

su_sudo=sudo

and then try running
python ./install.py

Try again and change ALL occurrences of
su_sudo=su
into
su_sudo=sudo

and then try running
python ./install.py
again. What happens now?

Thank you for still helping

Please upload the installation log to https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/ and provide the link that you receive.

Pierre (pkawak) said : #45

Okay so I am trying to run it with sudo and its working so far

Pierre (pkawak) said : #46

Okay it worked and I've got a device discovery window open in front of me but it won't find my printer using the Network/Ethernet/Wireless network. Help?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #47

What is output of

hp-check

Pierre (pkawak) said : #48

(base) pierrekawak@EB312-Tree-02:~$ hp-check
warning: CUPSEXT could not be loaded. Please check HPLIP installation.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #49

Apparently your installation attempt failed.

Sorry, but I am running out of ideas.

It seems to me that one of the causes for your problem is the fact, that the hplip installer believes that you are running Debian/sid. I have no idea why.

If you want me to try helping further, please upload the installer log to pastebin.

Pierre (pkawak) said : #50

Well, hold on. It worked let me show you again

It finds other printers but not mine

Pierre (pkawak) said : #51

I did it! Thank you! It worked with sudo but through my whole debugging process I connected the internet to the wifi instead of the ethernet cable. Reconnected it and bam, hplip could detect it!

Thanks for the tips my friend. I appreciate all your help and I apologize I was MIA a lot during the summer.
