I am trying to install hplip after upgrading to openSUSE 15.1. Can't get plugin to install.

Asked by Keith Larter on 2019-11-02

I ran the hplip install script and get to a point where it asks me to run hp-setup manually. It finds the device and then tells me to download hp-plugin. I get the following message:

Plugin is not accessible. Trying to download it from fallback location: [https://developers.hp.com/sites/default/files/hplip-3.19.10-plugin.run]
Receiving digital keys: /usr/bin/gpg --homedir /home/keith/.hplip/.gnupg --no-permission-warning --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 0x4ABA2F66DBD5A95894910E0673D770CDA59047B9

 takes a few minutes; eventually i get:

Creating directory plugin_tmp
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing HPLIP 3.19.10 Plugin Self Extracting Archive.Extraction failed.
error: Python gobject/dbus may be not installed

Tried this. Only error was with finding python-notify. Would this prevent the plugin download?

brian_p (claremont102) said : #3

No. Downloading directly from https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/plugins
is a straightforward operation independent of python.

Thanks. I got the downloads and ran hp-plugin with this result:

The advice pointed to does not involve running hp-plugin. I have no idea what
you are doing,

I have been trying for two days to install the hplip package. Seems I've
gotten to the stage where it needs the plugin.

hplip appears to be installed, but the plugin is not!

All seems to be ok, until I try to add a printer and I get the message
which says I need to install the plugin.

This all started when I got "filter failed" message trying to print a document.
The advice was to re-install the printer.
In doing so, hp-setup (called from Yast) went into tight loop.
I've tried the steps documented above with no good results.
Should I post on openSUSE forum?

Print to this device is working from my other Leap 15.1 computer.

Can you help with this problem?
