hp-systray problem
I recently upgraded to opensuse 12.2. I have hplip installed with the following packages:

rpm -qa |grep hplip

python-2.7.3-3.6.1.x86_64 is installed

I'm running kde 4.9 as the DE.

The HP Device Manager does not bring up the gui any more. When I monitor the command line, I see the following (python?) errors. Does anyone else have the same problem and/or a fix?


warning: Reportlab not installed. Fax coverpages disabled.
warning: Please install version 2.0+ of Reportlab for coverpage support.

You need the GUI, hp-toolbox. It's often a separate package.

In Debian, that package is called hplip-gui; I don't know what it is called in rpm-world.

An update - hplip-3.12.10a (available today at opensuse Printing) solved the problem.
