• Printer setup


    Just installed antergos 17.7

    Installed hplip and ran printer setup up many times and it won’t take my username and password . also tried as root and root password as with CUPS and it still won’t work.

    How can I solve this problem?

  • what gives you:

    systemctl status org.cups.cupsd.service
    

    ?

    Do you try sudo hp-setup -i from terminal?

  • why doesn’t this forum let me edit thread?

    printer setup saw my computer the hp envy

    Thanks, it’s now working.
    What would cause it to not work before?

  • are you using

    sudo hp-setup -i
    

    now?

    then you run the setup with root rights at all and it do not ask for password later inside setup routine.
    you can run also

    hp-setup -i
    

    without sudo then you need to give root as username inside setup routine.
