CM1312nfi MFP Fails To Install - Manjaro XFCE

Asked by Michael Riegert on 2019-10-14

I am ultimately trying to print from my Thinkpad T450 running Manjaro XFCE to this HP Color Laserjet CM1312nfi MFP over USB.

I downloaded the hplip-3.19.8-plugin.run (and .asc) from https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/plugins as downloading them from within the program always failed. Here's what happened in terminal when I tried to install it.

```$ hp-plugin -gi
