How can I install hplip 3.19.8 on Linux Mint

Asked by Reginaldo Bertozzi on 2019-09-30

I am unable to install hplip 3.19.8 on Linux Mint.
When I try to download the driver directly from the HP website, the following error message appears:
"Plugin install failed"
And it does not complete the installation.
I would like to know what I must do to complete the installation and be able to use the printer.
