cups HP printer: stopped filter failed


I've been trying to get my printer working on my SARPI method of installing 14.2.

One thread suggested this: http://juanvillar.blogspot.com/ but it crashed during the manual installation phase.

I had originally followed these instructions: https://wiki.alienbase.nl/doku.php?id=slackware:cups And they probably work fine in an x86 environment. But I get "filter failed" with an arm7 when I print test page. It shows "filter failed" in the status column in the print menu of my 'main' computer.

Everything looks as it should in localhost:631

Is there a better way to configure the HP drivers? Or is there a better way of doing this? lpadmin?

I never made any sense of that error - it's a "Something went wrong" type of error.

Tell us more: What printer?: what connection?: if wifi has it a static IP?; Are you using hplip?; Have you searched threads? Are you on a minimal install, or the standard full install?

It's an HP Photosmart C4480.

I used to have it connected to this wavlink usb-to-network device, and set it up with an lpadmin command. But that method won't allow scanning, but I'll get there when I can get it printing. So, the printer works fine.

I've tried all three drivers available for both detected items in the cups configuration. It detects my printer twice as: "HP Photosmart C4400 series USB CN86PFG1BZ0557 HPLIP (HP Photosmart C4400 series)" and "HP Photosmart C4400 series (HP Photosmart C4400 series)."

My best guess is that the driver binary is for x86, as that's what was hinted at on every search I've made. But all the guides don't mention this.

My printer isn't listed here: https://www.openprinting.org/driver/hplip/ I don't know if that means anything or not.

Do you install the printer using HPLIP?

According to the HPLIP website, that is a supported printer.

You're not giving us much, are you? WHY won't HPLIP install? Have you not got the dependencies? I think it needs python, and a few modules, probably. I'd still like answers to the 'Have you searched fo0r this fault?' question and the 'Are you on a minimal install, or the standard full install?' question. Things should slot into slackware, regardless of whether they have their dependencies or not. Are you out of space on /? Have you a copying problem?

I have no idea why it won't install, but I've since gone back to my usb-to-network connector. 5+ hours trying to figure this out is way too much time wasted on something that should have taken maybe 15 minutes.

thanks for the replies

Do you mean that HPLIP won't install or HPLIP will not install the printer?

To the best of my experience, Slackware includes HPLIP out of the box. You can start the HPLIP GUI by issuing the command hp-toolbox as user from the command line, if HPLIP does not appear on your menu.

I had a strange situation where HPLIP could not install my new printer, I think because the printer is just too new for HPLIP in 14.2, but I was able to install the printer using KDE system settings-->Hardware-->Printers.

Slackware packages are tar.xz, exploded from / after which a script is run. The reasons for not installing are
  1. Broken hplip archive
  2. You're lacking tar, xz, or package tools
  3. You're missing something fundamental, e.g. ld.so

A package can be installed and fail to work for the lack of some dependency. Try
Code:
which hpijs
If that returns a location, hplip is installed. Have you python installed?
