How to Remove HPLIP:

The release somehow does not create source folder while installing process. You may re-run the installer with --target flag to extract source:

~/Downloads/hplip-3.21.10.run --target ~/Downloads/hplip-3.21.10

When you see the new folder generated in Downloads, type q or press Ctrl+C to quit installer.

And, finally run the uninstall script from that folder will remove the driver:

sudo python3 ~/Downloads/hplip*/uninstall.py

That’s all. Enjoy!
