Thank you. I got my 125a to work by running hp-setup in terminal which downloaded the required plugin.

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.


How do I force a download, can't make the popup appear that tells me i need the proprietary plugin from HP. Just upgraded from 15...

Does running hp-setup in the terminal do anything?

hp-setup opens "HP Device Manager - Setup" dialog box. With my printer HP LaserJet Pro MFP M125a, it did a good job.
