Download & Install HPLIP 3.22.2

To get the software package, download the “hplip-x.xx.x.run” file from the link page below:

Download HPLIP

Next, search for and open a terminal window from start menu. And, run command to grant executable permission, and run the installer script to install it:

cd ~/Downloads && chmod +x hplip-*.run && ./hplip-*.run

Just follow the terminal output and answer questions. It will build and install the software automatically.

Tip: For those still using Python 2 and getting into python-pyqt5 dependency issue, see this workaround.

How to Remove HPLIP:

Running the “hplip-x.xx.x.run” installer will generate a source folder in user Downloads directory. If you don’t see it, re-run it via command:

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

Then in file manager, go to “Downloads”. Right-click on ‘hplip’ folder and select ‘Open in Terminal’, finally run the uninstall script in pop-up terminal window:

sudo python3 uninstall.py

That’s all. Enjoy!
