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:


bash-4.2$ hp-toolbox

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

Looking other post it seems that an upgrade is required. Few days ago noticed this in the slackware64-current changelog:

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.

Just upgraded to hplip-3.12.11-x86_64-1.txz from slackware64-current 14 and its working again.

Thanx for the help
