Problems with the hp-plugin

Asked by Gisela Hagmair on 2019-10-08

After having an update of my operating system from Ubuntu 18.04 to 19.04 I reinstalled the HPlip. At the end of the installation it first said it could not get an appropriate key to download the plugin. I played around a bit, then I managed to install a plugin, but it still did not print. Doing a replugin, it said, that the plugin file was corrupted (or something similar). In the meantime I get no error warning any more, but it still does not print :'D!

Doing the "hp-check -t" and I get no error!

It worked well with the previous Ubuntu-Version and the previous HPLIP. Can you help?

Thanks in advance!
