I am looking at your Have downloaded hp linux imaging and Printing HPLIP to Desktop Hlip 2.8.2 13.5 mb also Hplip 2.8.2 run

and it looks like you may have a "file".run which you make executable and then
./file.run to execute it.

Hi aus9
Have new printerDCP130c That works fine with Mepis
Hp deskjet 948c OK for Windows
Regret to say I had deleted the files that I had downloaded from Linux-foundation.
Have the original CD for HP 948c
Printer still only prints when system shuts down
