Error message from hplip upon startup
I have a HP photosmart printer 1215 hooked up to my PC via a usb cable.
Starting with Ubuntu 12.04, shortly after my desktop appears I will get a window that says
System Program Problem detected and given the option to cancel or report problem.
If I choose report problem, I get a second window that says
Sorry Ubuntu 12.04 experienced an iternal error.
executable path usr/share/
And then another window that says
Unable to determine the package or source package name
When I click 'ok' to that window, all the windows go away.
However, I can print to my printer just fine.
When I try to run usr/share/
From base.g import *
because it says there is no module base.g
As I said, I seem to be able to print, but having this error come up every time I started my desktop pc and sometimes while in the middle of doing things is disconcerting.
What is going wrong here ?
Can you help with this problem?
