How do you try to install it? I seem to remember having a similar problem. I did get it installed and it works (both printing and scanning). It doesn't look like I have complete notes on what I did, but they say that I ran hplib-3.19.1.run, which implies that I downloaded it first. Looks like the current version is hplib-3.19.12.run. This can be downloaded from https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/gethplip, select Ubuntu. Instructions for installing are at https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/install/install/index.

I have notes about the packages that needed to be installed (these are in addition to what I had installed before this, so this may not be a complete list, and may be extra packages not needed as I kept installing until I got it to work): pyqt5-dev, libnet-snmp-perl, libsane-dev, python-pil, libcups2-dev, libusb-dev, libtool, libsnmp-dev, libgusb-dev, pyqt5-dbus.mainloop.pyqt5, python-qt4-dbus, python3-dbus.mainloop.qt, python3-pyqt4, python-dbus-dev, python-notify, pyqt5-dev-tools, python-pyqt5, python3-qtpy, libtool-bin, python-qt4-dev, ptqt4-dev-tools, all other pyqt5. I don't remember how I figured out these needed to be installed - either it told me, or I was guessing.

My final note says that selecting Qt4 allowed it to be successfully installed (selecting Qt5 did not work). I believe that I needed to select Custom install and answer a bunch of questions (because the Automatic install failed probably because it didn't know what Neon was).


Currently using KDE Neon 5.17.5 (run Windows 10 in a VM); migrated from Linux Mint 17.3

If HPLIP graphical front end from the normal Ubuntu repos ( the package called hplip-gui) does not support your printer, you can modify your system to temporarily identify itself as Ubuntu, so the manual installer will work:

Edit /etc/lsb-release and change first line value from neon to ubuntu
Run hplip installer
Afterward, edit /etc/lsb-release and restore first line value to neon
