Hplip


Today I downloaded a new version of HPLIP for my HP PSC2355 and installed in via a terminal in Opensuse 11 using the automatic settings. I have an old version of HPLIP installed and the folder containing all the data is on my desktop. After installing the new version I did a cd in terminal to the folder with all the data from the old version and then did 'make uninstall'. Everything seemed to go well but I still cannot delete that folder from my desktop whatsoever. I just get a message that says Access Denied.

Is HPLIP truly uninstalled, does anyone know how to cleanly uninstall it?

If your original hplip was working then you should not have upgraded.

You should have uninstalled the old before you installed the new.

You are probably seeing access denied due to file permissions. Check to see if you have w permission on the files and w permission on the directory in which the files reside.

The original was not working correctly and the new one seemed to fix the problems. It says I have read and write permissions when I right click the folder and select the permissions tab. I tried logging on as root and cd to the desktop and then deleting the folder but it still gave me the same access denied message.

I had the same problem about a year ago and if I remember I moved the Directory from Desktop to Documents and then use the rm command instead of delete.

I can't even move the directory, gives me the access denied message which I just don't understand because I seem to have full read/write permissions.

Go into YaST and make sure it is not listed in your printer setup. If so you will have to delete there first. Make sure if you delete it is not the driver that works. Badly worded, make sure you do not have two printer drivers.
