Where are hplipopensource's cli commands?


Hello,

HP's hplipopensource site includes instructions for downloading/installing HP's printer software, its Device Manager, on its site http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...all/index.html. That page used to include the commands each instruction set refers to; now it doesn't. I've asked its help section, hplipopensource's page in Ubuntu's Launchpad, to no avail; no answer after nearly two weeks. Can anyone here tell me where those commands are?

Regards,
Lynn

rlynwood,

I have no idea what HP have done with those original commands.

Switch on the printer and connect to your computer via USB cable.

Click on Download HPLIP from the hplip link.

In my case the downloaded hplip-3.16.5.run file will be placed on my Desktop. (You may use Downloads, so change the following location accordingly).

In Terminal:

Code:
cd Desktop

sh hplip-3.16.5.run
Then follow the on-screen instructions.

Do you mean commands like

Code:
hp-setup
hp-toolbox
and the like that call various individual HPLIP programs?

Try

Code:
ls /usr/bin/hp*

Thank you all very much. Beachboy2 gave the answer I needed, reminding me of the procedure. I installed it in four OSes and saved the instructions for the future. Thanks again.
