Question hp-toolbox not opening


Hi all, I' m using an HP F2050 multifunction with slackware64 14 multilib. It prints and scans ok. The printer is fully functional. But after a wile I've noticed the toolbox did not open any more. So I can't check for cartridge levels, page conf, etc.

Close the hp tray icon in KDE and in console run:

Code:
bash-4.2$ hp-toolbox 

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.12.9)
HP Device Manager ver. 15.0

    toolbox = DevMgr5(__version__, device_uri,  None)
  File "/usr/share/hplip/ui4/devmgr5.py", line 204, in __init__
    if not utils.Is_HPLIP_older_version( installed_version,  self.user_settings.latest_available_version):
  File "/usr/share/hplip/base/utils.py", line 1927, in Is_HPLIP_older_version
    if(int(installed_array[cnt]) < int(available_array[cnt])):
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: "11 Public Release</a><br />')"
Looking other post http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...en-4175433101/ it seems that an upgrade is required. Few days ago noticed this in the slackware64-current changelog:
Code:
Tue Jan 22 23:40:16 UTC 2013
ap/hplip-3.12.11-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
Should I upgrade to this pkg? or should I move to current?

Any help is welcome.

No reason to move to current just for hplip if you don't want. It is safe to upgrade only the hplip pkg.
