How to Install HPLIP 3.22.6:

Firstly, download the “hplip-3.22.6.run” installer from the link page below:

Download HPLIP

Then, open your Downloads folder, right-click on blank area and select “Open in Terminal“. It will open terminal and automatically navigate to the folder as working directory.

When terminal opens, run following commands one by one to add executable permission, and run installer script:

chmod u+x hplip-3.22.6.run

In the terminal screen, it will ask you a few questions during the installation process. Except for password authentication, it’s OK to hit Enter to answer default for all questions!

After installation, plug or re-plug your printer/scanner and open the HP device manager application to get start:

Uninstall HPLIP 3.22.6

While running the installer script in terminal, it automatically creates “hplip-3.22.6” folder in your user Downloads directory!

Right-click on that folder in your file manager and select “Open in Terminal”, finally run the uninstall script via command:

sudo ./uninstall.py

If you’ve already removed that folder, re-run the .run installer will generate the folder again.
