hplip-3.20.5 installer fails on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Asked by Mark Drone on 2020-05-17

HPLIP-Version: HPLIP 3.20.5
Kernel: 5.4.0-29-generic x86_64
Distro: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa)
Desktop: MATE 1.24.0
Printer: HP ENVY Photo 7100
Python Version: Python 3.8.2

Relevant output of hp-check -t :

warning: Printer is not HPLIP installed. Printers must use the hp: or hpfax: CUPS backend for HP-Devices.

| SUMMARY |

Missing Required Dependencies
-----------------------------
error: 'gtk2-engines-pixbuf' package is missing/incompatible
error: 'python-pyqt5' package is missing/incompatible

Missing Optional Dependencies
-----------------------------
error: 'python-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5' package is missing/incompatible
error: 'python-reportlab' package is missing/incompatible
error: 'python-notify' package is missing/incompatible

Total Errors: 4
Total Warnings: 1

I downloaded the *.deb packages above from older Ubuntu repositories and tried installing them with dpkg, but there were numerous dependencies that could not be satisfied. Most fo the incompatibilities appear to stem from the requirement of older versions of Python.

Will there be any effort to remedy these incompatibilities?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #1

Try

sudo apt install python3-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 python3-reportlab python3-notify2

and then re-run the installer.
It seems that the names of the packages for Ubuntu 20.04 are not correctly defined in the installer scripts.

It seems that you are missing another one

sudo apt install python3-pyqt5

SCHUH (marc-schuh-r) said : #4

Hi Manfred

I'm really happy to help you

python3-pytq5 is already installed via synaptic

Maybe there is a confusion between python-pyqt5 and python*3*-pytq5!?

Have a nice evening

Mark Drone (mdrone) said : #7

Thanks for the advice:

python3-reportlab is already the newest version (3.5.34-1ubuntu1).
python3-reportlab set to manually installed.
python3-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 is already the newest version (5.14.1+dfsg-3build1).
python3-notify2 is already the newest version (0.3-4).
python3-pyqt5 is already the newest version (5.14.1+dfsg-3build1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Unfortunately, this doesn't cure the problem.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #8

Which packages does the installer now complain about?

Mark Drone (mdrone) said : #9

Same old complaints.

I started with a clean slate and ran ./hplip-3.20.5.run again

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #12

I am sorry, I do not have a clue why the HPLIP installer does not identify that yo u already have the python-PyQt5 package installed.
I suggest that you create a bug report.

Mark Drone (mdrone) said : #13

Thanks very much for your assistance, Manfred.

Can you help with this problem?
