• Getting hp-clean to work on live-media? Wrong environment ?


    Will this work with Gnome or am I condemned to switch to a kde version for this to work. Even though hp-clean should work without a gui, I run into those errors.

    hp-clean -i

    I installed both pyqt4 and 5 and even libdbusmenu-qt4… but there’s still something missing. I’d appreciate any help. I really need to get something printed and therefor a clean print-head.

    This is a live system with the printer installed. Is the vanilla-environment even compatible ? hp-systray is asking for the same components.

    Thank you

  • Solved.

    hp-check is the key.

    error: python3-pyqt4 PyQt 4- Qt interface for Python (for Qt version 4.x) REQUIRED 4.0 - MISSING ‘python3-pyqt4 needs to be installed’

    i went from there and installed a few more things like python3-pyqt4 and python-pyqt5-5.9.2-2. It works now.
