How to run a .run file to install HP printer on Chromebook?

Asked by leon roomberg on 2020-11-01

I have downloaded the file to install an HP6960 printer for a friend's Chromebook.

(HP printer to USB cable to ASUS chromebook.)

I do not know how to execute the file.

Loading the file from the GUI pulls up an editor.

CTLR-ALT-T puts me in a command line (crosh) environment, but I do not know what to do from there.

Hi ,

You can not run .run file on chromebook.

You have to tak tar ball package from below portal.

extract it in your chrome book.
And manually copy hpcups and hpps filter to /usr/share/lib/cups/filter

and all the ppds to /usr/share/ppd/HP folder

After that do ctrl+p

Can you help with this problem?
