HPLIP Hewlett Packard printer drivers

June 25, 2021 — BarryK

The latest EasyOS has a lot of printer drivers, provided by 'gutenprint', 'foomatic-db' and 'brlaser' packages. However, from feedback, it seems that not all Hewlett Packard printers are covered, and users want 'hplip' package.

I have compiled hplip version 3.19.12 in OpenEmbedded. It is not the latest version, but is the version provided in the Dunfell release of OpenEmbedded. I can bump the version if users report a later version of hplip is required to support their printer.

Anyway, 3.19.12 will be in the next release of EasyOS, for testing.

I want to release the next EasyOS, waiting for SeaMonkey developers to release 2.53.8.
