HP LaserJet MFP m127fw using Ubuntu 20.10 Fails

Asked by jim wright on 2021-04-27

OS: Ubuntu 20.10
Printer: HP LaserJet MFP m127fw
Printer is network printer
Printer works with Mac Big Sur, Windows 10
Browser is latest updated Google Chrome Stable

Printer starts printing and prints a few pages and stops. The queue hangs and then has to be restarted after powering down system. For example 5 pages print and then stops with 7 pages left in queue.

I used hp-setup and the printer installed. The printer is in your list of HP plugins but installing using this method also causes the same problem.

I think the problem might be related to Google Chrome browser.

This printer and Google Chrome worked with the previous Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 but fails when using Ubuntu 20.04 or 20.10.

Do you have an idea what I can do to make this work correctly?
