• Unable to upgrade to hplip 3.15.6-1


    Hi, all
    I just received an upgrade to hplip 3.15.6-1.
    The problem is that it cannot get it upgraded because, as pacman inforns me, I am missing hplip 3.15.5 and it cannot resolve dependencies. BUT my current edition is 3.15.4-4 and the missing package is not in the repos.
    What can be done? Is unistalling hplip and re-installing it a good idea to reach the new package?:question:

    I looked a bit deeper. On runnimg the hp-setup proccess, there was also an hplip plugin 3.15.4-4 installed (from the AUR) along with the hplip 3.15.4-4 package. That plugin was the one which was asking me for a 3.15.5 upgrade, but could not find it to build and made the upgrade impossible.
    So, I removed the said plugin and I was able to upgrade. But now, there is a communication error with my printer, so, I still cannot use the printer.
    I tried refreshing my devices with the hplip tool, but with no success. I also tried to scan for new devices (again via the hplip tool), it found them, but when I tried to add them up, it asked me for a username and a password in CUPS. Never happened to me before and I don t know what these are. I am much too tired for now to keep searching. I ll come back tomorrow and if somebody has come up with some idea/s, it will be much appreciated…

  • Try this: uninstall it, delete the package from your pacman cache, refresh your databases with pacman -Syyu, and finally install it again. If that doesn’t work you can downgrade to the previous version using the downgrade command (installable from the AUR). Let me know how it goes!

    Thanks, Dastin! I have already done it with no success,quite a lot of times. I found a temporary workaround, though. I was able to get it work by adding the printer via the Gnome Settings Center. Temporary meaning :smile: I just managed to have an operating printer alone, without its other functions, which I don t really use much and I can do without till I have a thorough look at the Arch wiki,
