HP PhotoSmart 2710 ?

Asked by Francois Ochsenbein on 2020-07-24

Looking at the list of HP printers working on Linux, found at
I ordered the model "HP PhotoSmart 2710 All-in-one Printer" included in this list, indicated with "Full" support level, and working with HPLIP 0.9.5. When I got it, and tried to install it on my Raspberry with the "hp-setup" program. But my new printer is not recognized, despite of having HPLIP-3.16.11 installed -- a much much higher version ! I tried to install the last HPLIP version from the sourceforge repository, but it fails for a raspberry with a problem of libraries (prnt/hpcups/libImageProcessor.so which is a link to libImageProcessor-x86_32.so, which can't work on an ARM architecture). So what is possible to do ?
Thank you in advance for any help !

In fact it's worse, hp printers require now to download a HP-smart application for the setup (no screen on the printer) and of course such an application does not exist for linux − hplip does not help unfortunately. Looks like HP wants to tranform its users into hostages…

The only thing I know about the OS on a Raspberry is that it could be some
form of Debian. If it is, you have


to guide you.

Well, it is definitvely Debian, but on an armhf architecture (NOT x86), and the 'make' ends with incompatible prnt/hpcups/libImageProcessor.so file, as mentioned in my original message. This share object file is a link to libImageProcessor-x86_32.so, and no sources are available to create this .so file.
