Question Installing HP multi-machine in Arch


Hello,

Recently i bought a new HP scann/printer/copier machine that i connected wireless to my laptop.
Can someone direct me as to how i cna make arch see that HP step-by-step please?
i just installed hplip cups and sane as well but i don't know after these install what to do.

I need human help couldn't figure out the arch wiki.

The things i have tried so far is:

sudo pacman -Sy hplip, cups, sane, libcups

and i have edited /etc/cups/client.conf where i added

Server 192.168.1.3 (is the ip address that router gave to the HP)

what is next please?

I never got any good of hplip, I use foo2zjs. Install is crappy, but it prints.
There are printer setup things for hplip - it's a PITA.

That's the printer bit. For the scanner/copier, you need sane/xsane. Enjoy

I have had HPLIP successfully install my HP printer to many distros and computers. It has not yet failed me.

If you installed the HPLIP GUI (hp-toolbox on the command line), run it as user to install the printer. There's a spot in there where you can give it the printer IP address.

Otherwise, as root run

Code:
hp-setup -i [printer ip address]
and follow the prompts.

You've a lot there to fix for yourself. When thing say "Not installed," then it's over to uyou. Try reading up on the hplip thing if you are determined to use it.
