Installing HPLIP on KANO OS

Asked by Glen Kirschenmann on 2020-02-29

After Verifying and Uncompressing and acknowledging Debian distribution the install asks for root/Superuser User Password. Kano OS has only one password, it is just "kano" and that fails. Is there another way to give the install the correct permissions?

The Kano Computer Kit is built around a Raspberry Pi, Kano OS is based on the Raspbian OS which itself is based on Debian, a Linux based operating system.

My printer is: HP Envy 4500 E-all-in-one

I suppose Kano OS uses sudo to gain root privileges. If HPLIP thinks
it is installing to a Debian machine, it will expect a root password.
There is a way round this (which is a little complicated), but, knowing
what your printer is might give us another, easier way.

I forgot to ask what version of Debian is being used. If it based on buster,
the easy way to print is get a URI with 'driverless' and then subtitute in

  lpadmin -p 4500 -v URI -E -m everywhere

I do not know whether you need to preface this command with sudo. Let
us know if that works for you.

(I have the same device as you).

My OS is Kano which is based on Debian, so I can not give you a version of
Debian. I have not heard about URI or 'driverless' but will research if you
think that might work with Kano OS.

Hi,

we dont support Kano OS in HPLIP.

Being based on Debian is useful information. However, not knowing whether
it is based on the stable (buster) edition of Debian is a drawback. If it is not, my
previous advice will not work.

There is a Plan B. First provide the output of the command 'lpinfo -v'.

Glen Kirschenmann (kano2) said : #7

The lpinfo -v returned command not found. So I entered sudo su and tried
lpinfo -v again, this time it worked, but not a very impressive list, no
Printers.. I then entered lpinfo -m and got a long list of drivers. Images
Kano-1, Kano-2, Kano-3
I closed Terminal and opened Internet and entered http://127.0.0.1:631 to
see if CUPS still worked the same and it still see's my HP Envy 4500 but
does not show a driver for it. Images Kano-4, Kano-5
CUPS was installed by 'sudo apt-get install cups' and 'sudo usermod -a -G
lpadmin <your_username>' so I don't know what version it is and at the CUPS
web site I can not get a list of drivers included in the current version.
Your suggestions are apreciated.

Glen

Your 'lpinfo -v' output doesn't show anything for the ENVY 4500. This is
serious. If it is USB-connected, it should have a usb://... entry. Try with
the printer on USB.

If it is network-connected, it should have a dnssd://... entry. Check the
network connection.

We cannot proceed until this is fixed.

Glen Kirschenmann (kano2) said : #14

The Envy 4500 is on the network and is seen by CUPS during the Add Printer
output. After selecting HP ENVY 4500 series [FB53A5] (HP ENVY 4500 series)
from the Discovered Network Printers and clicking Continue. The HP ENVY
4500 is not in the Model list so no PPD file can be chosen and CUPS can not
complete.

Yes, and so does HPLIP-3.19.12.run . My problem was that the HPLIP install
ran into a permissions password problem. I have googled around but can not
find 'printer-driver-hpcups' package. Most pages refer to
https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing and that is where I
got HPLIP-3.19.12.run
Any idea where I can d/l 'printer-driver-hpcups' ?

Your package manager should be able to handle getting it. Otherwise,
see the Packages section at www.debian.org.

Glen Kirschenmann (kano2) said : #21

At https://packages.debian.org/stretch/printer-driver-hpcups it says: Users
of the CUPS printing system are advised to also install the hplip package.
Also under 'Download printer-driver-hpcups' under Architecture I don't see
Rasberry Pi , so maybe I should try:
At https://packages.debian.org/source/stretch/hplip under Download hplip it
lists 3 files:
hplip_3.16.11+repack0-3.dsc 3.0 kB
hplip_3.16.11+repack0.orig.tar.xz 8,667.8 kB
hplip_3.16.11+repack0-3.debian.tar.xz 99.6 kB
Completely different sizes and none are .run, which should I try to install?

"Rasberry Pi" is not an architecture in Debian terms.
For Debian the term "architecture" reflects the CPU architecture. I assume on your Pi it is armhf or arm64 or something like that.
What output do you get for the command
dpkg --print-architecture

You are completely free to ignore my expert advice.

You are the one who has installed kano. You are the one who is supposed to know how it works. I know nothing whatsoever about how it or the Rasberry Pi operates. I am intimately familiar with Debian, on which you say kano is based.

I feel we are not getting anywhere with this. I'll opt out of the discussion.

Glen Kirschenmann (kano2) said : #24

Sorry for the delay, the Kano is now 35 minutes from me, and I only get over
there twice a week.

The dpkg output was armhf so I d/l
printer-driver-hpcups_3.16.11+repack0-3_armhf.deb but have no idea what
commands to try to install this.
