Post HPLIP for HP P2055dn
Running M8.0 and need to install HP Laserjet P2055dn on network. According to HP web site I need a newer version of HPLIP. However, when trying to install I get the following -

Quote:
INSTALL MISSING REQUIRED DEPENDENCIES
-------------------------------------
warning: There are 6 missing REQUIRED dependencies.
note: Installation of dependencies requires an active internet connection.
warning: Missing REQUIRED dependency: python-devel (Python devel - Python development files)
warning: This installer cannot install 'python-devel' for your distro/OS and/or version.
error: Installation cannot continue without this dependency. Please manually install this dependency and re-run this installer
Checked Synaptic and no such package exists.

Suggestions?

PS. 8.5 is not my cup of tea at the moment

The HPLIP site says you need hplip 2.8.10 or higher.
hplip 3.9.12 is available in the MEPIS 8.0 Community Repository.

Under Settings -> Repositories in Synaptic, add this entry:

http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/repo
mepis8cr
main non-free


Reload, and you will find hplip 3.9.12 listed. Debian splits hplip up into several packages so you might also wish to install hpijs, hpijs-ppds hplip-cups & hplip-gui just to make sure you have everything.

Thanks Tim. Followed your suggestion, however driver didn't show up.

Interesting as this is, last night, just for kicks, I fired up a beta version of M8.5 and it found the printer easily and I was able to add it.

I may have to bite the bullet and install 8.5.

OK, took the plunge and installed M8.5. Still feeling my way around but as stated in my previous post installing the P2055dn as a network printer was a piece of cake.

Trying to solve similar problem with different HP printer, I can't get hplip 3.x via synaptic, even with said repo added and synaptic reloaded -- all I can find is hplip 2.8.6* !!! WTF?

You may have to edit your apt preferences as described here:
