Laserjet 1018 stops communicating on USB after firmware load on connection. Linux Mint 20.1, HPLIP 3.20.11

Asked by Chris White on 2021-01-18

I had the printer working on Linux Mint 18.3 but even then I had to got back through the HPLIP versions until I found one that worked. I didn't record what I did at the time but I think it might have been 3.16.3 or 3.17.10. I cannot go back to those now as they're not available for download and the oldest I could find, 3.17.11, wouldn't install because of unresolved dependencies.

So I've got the default version that loads with Linux Mint 20.1 although for this hp-check reports,

I'd point out it says "usblpo:removed" and the printer dialogs show communication errors but the "USB disconnect" doesn't come up until I power off the printer.

Previously when I had things working I'd turn on the printer and after doing it's quick self test the status and error LEDs would flash and it'd briefly run the mechanism. I assume this was the firmware plugin loading. After that nothing would print but if I cycled the printer power again, same sequence of LED flashes and noises, things would work. Now cycling power on the printer doesn't help.

I've tried various things suggested online,
"apt-get purge ippusbxd"
"gdebi sane-airscan_0.99.23+83.1_amd64.deb"
"gdebi ipp-usb_0.9.16+47.1_amd64.deb"

but nothings helped.

However the USB device for the printer still doesn't belong to the lp group,

Chris White (whitecf) said : #3

Got rid of my Laserjet1018 specific udev rule because after making the suggested change the supplied 56-hpmud.rules was matching the printer. As the created usb devices got my user and group, rather than root and lp, I added colord and saned to my group. Didn't make it work but go things further.

My modified udev rule:

LABEL="hpmud_rules_end"

One of the many things I do not understand is why the USB device has my user and group instead of "root" and "lp" as per the rule?

Chris White (whitecf) said : #5

Oops! Turns out I had a home made udev rule from when I was experiencing problems getting a backup disk to mount. Getting rid of this seems to have cleared the problems in as much as things are back to how they were.

Not yet tested if printer is available first time I power it up after a boot or if I will still need to power it up and then cycle its power. However I can live with that.

Had the problem of constantly being prompted to install the plguin. Eventually found the fix for this is to symlink "/usr/lib64/x86_64-linux-gnu" to "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/". Hopefully someone will eventually fix HPLIP so the utilities don't keep looking for that directory?
