I'm trying to install my printer through the HP Device Manager. It's already working with cups but I want the added benefits of using the HP Toolbox.
It detects the printer correctly and then tries to download the additional plugin that it needs but that errors out saying:
ERROR: Plug-in file does not match its digital signature.
File may have been corrupted or altered.
Error code: 2
I manually downloaded the hplip file for Ubuntu 11.4 but I'm using kubuntu 11.10 as HPLIP site does not have a package for 11.10 yet.
Though I already have hplip installed, from original install of kubuntu.
Can someone help me figure this out? I want the added benefits of the HP Toolbox.
Hmm I thought it was through cups that it's working but I can't load localhost:631. I installed the printer through the Kubuntu System Settings, Printer Configuration settings area.
EDITED to add:
I can't get past the window where you can download/select the binary plugin file for HPLIP. sudo hp-plugin is giving me this problem.

When I select the plugin file the Next button is grayed out. I can't use that file even though that's what it's asking for. I'm so confused by this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Well I gave up with the gui and followed the directions on hplipopensource.com for the manual install. It worked fine. So if anyone else has a similar issue trying to install the hp toolbox thing, try this link: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...os/ubuntu.html
