If you use MX-Tools->Package Installer->then select Printing->then select HP Printing Extras...you will install HPLIP-3.16.11

Any particular reason you need HPLIP 3.17.x?

You are reading the guide for non-Debian distros such as Fedora. You need to read the Debian guide. All the packages are available in the standard repository, but often will be named differently in Debian...libcups2-dev instead of cups-devel is one example. But as Paul says, your printer might already be supported.

HP-LaserJet-Pro-MFP-M125a requires HP 3.17. Netrunner Linux with Depian 8 had the same issue and was solved by using testing stretch repo.
I was expecting MX 17 with Debian 9.3, solved the issue. I will temporarily enable testing.

Don't add the Debian testing repository, please. That often breaks your install beyond repair. We're going to get some version of 3.17.X in our own test repo, which doesn't break things. We have 3.17.6 already in the Debian 8 based MX 15/16 test repo, so it's not impossible, though Debian seems to have made versions >= 3.17.7-2 unbackportable.

Thanks. I found out that the repo I used before, does not help.

That usually does more harm than good.

HP says the 125a only needs 3.14.3: https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imag ... lugin.html

Do you mean you have the 25a?

These printers also require that you download and install a proprietary plugin from HP to work, as far as I gather.

To bring this to a conclusion, solved the problem with the backports since 3.17.7-2. A real face-palm moment--it just needs a non-parallel build, but the switch to debhelper 10 made parallel builds the default.

Thought I had tried that - but I just left off the -j3 instead of forcing it. :duh:

I suppose building with -j1 would also do it, but I decided to lock it down in the rules file. I think Buster can do the parallel build, though. Let me run that through my Buster pbuild.

Update: yes, Buster has no problem with the parallel build. Just a gotcha for the intrepid backporter, it seems.
