HPLIP toolbox won't start in Debian Etch, Lenny


I am using Debian Etch, Lenny. I tried to open 'HPLIP toolbox'; but the toolbox never appears.

See if you can get a meaningful error message by opening a terminal and starting the program with this command:

/usr/share/hplip/toolbox

Check to see if you have a package called python-qt3 installed.

The command is
