HP LASERJET P1007 NOT PRINTING IN UBUNTU 16.04

Asked by ANUPAM MITRA on 2019-08-08

Earlier my Desktop OS was UBUNTU 14.04 32 bit. Last week I formatted it and install UBUNTU 16.04 32 bit. HP Laserjet P1007 was working fine with the earlier set up. But after installing UBUNTU 16.04 printer is not functioning. Thereafter Hplip-3.19.6 was installed. In spite of that there was no development. Then I tried to install HP Plugin through Terminal. But it failed to install. The outcome is given below.

When I'm giving print order, HPLIP shows that 'Print Job Completed', but actually no print has taken place.

After continuous efforts to install HP Plugin, at last problem could be resolved and solved.
