Problems installing in debian 10.4, even if I choose to continue, can be solved

Asked by Roberto Boffino Monteiro on 2020-07-16

The hplip-3.20.6 asks if I want to continue saying debian 10.4 is not supported. If answering 'y', it will fail to check for packages that are actually installed, as python3-pyqt4 and python3-pyqt5 packages. All dependencies are satisfied, but the scripts fails.

I solved the problem with the patch:

--- hplip-3.20.6/installer/text_install.py 2020-06-18 10:07:32.000000000 -0300
+++ hplip-3.20.6.new/installer/text_install.py 2020-07-15 12:10:37.419812102 -0300

                 if not ok or choice == 'n':
                     log.info("Installation exit")
                     sys.exit()
- else:
- # Even previous distro is not supported
- Is_Manual_Distro = True
+ # Even previous distro is not supported
+ Is_Manual_Distro = True
         elif not core.is_auto_installer_support():
               # This distro is not supported
             Is_Manual_Distro = True

IMHO it can help who is trying to install it and maybe to maintainers that a look what is going on.

Regards.

Hi ,
Debian 10.4 is yet not supported for HPLIP.
We will provide that support in our next release. Thanks.

Can you help with this problem?
