HP Deskjet 1055 won't print color [solved]

#1 Post by Mauser » Fri Jun 08, 2018 2:40 pm

I have a HP Deskjet 1055. I have HPLIP installed. iIf I scan something it will print in color. When I print from a photo in Thunar it won't print in color even though I have color selected in the settings, it only prints in black and white. I tried HP support which is completely useless. Anyone know the fix for this?

Have you looked in HP Toolbox (see menu), there are settings there as well.

No, because I have no HP Toolbox.

MX Package Install MXPI -> "HP Printing" - HPLIB and printing extras
also double check CUPS at http://localhost:631/

Using the package installer (menu, mx tools, package installer) enter print in the search box and install the HP printing package that pops up.

That should give you the toolbox.

Got beaten by a minute hahaha!

I have that already. I have it set to color but it won't print color from Thunar. It will only print color when I scan. I don't know what you mean by "CUPS" and how to check it.

I have that installed already. It doesn't have anything that says, "toolbox." I have it set to color but won't print color.

What about printing from the default image viewer, Nomacs?

I have color photos in Thunar that won't print in color, they only print in black and white. You understand what I mean?
