I have a HP DeskJet 3632 printer. Have had it for years. had no problem up to and including Ubuntu 18.04 updates. My printer was not picked up on the Ubuntu 20.04 update. Could not use the usb cable in anyway to connect with the printer. Finally saw a help that told me how to run a wireless hookup to the printer. This lasted until Ubuntu did another update. Since then none of the HpLip automatic updates have allowed me to use a usb or wireless connection to allow the prnter to work. Really not sure what version of HpLip I should have now or where it is in the computer. It is not stored in downloads either.

Hi ,

You are not able to connect to wireless in ubuntu 20.10 because of ippusbxd daemon running in the OS.
It is an issue from ubuntu side. You can kill the PID with your USB device as a workaround.

Can you help with this problem?
