How to Install HPLIP 3.22.2 on Ubuntu / RHEL / Elementary OS / Linux Mint
Step 1: Download the installer file from the Sourceforge site or use the below command
Step 2: Provide execute permissions to the installer file and execute it
chmod 755 hplip-3.22.2.run && ./hplip-3.22.2.run
Step 3: Verify the Version and provide the password
Once the installation starts, it will ask you to confirm the OS version, press y if it’s detected correctly, and provide the password of the account.
The installer file will start looking for the required files for the printer and it automatically downloads and install the missing dependencies if any.
Once the dependencies are completely installed on the system it will run ./configure and then make command and finally make install will be executed which actually installs the HPLIP on the system.
Step 4: Restart or RE-PLUG your printer.
Once the installation is completed, restart or re-plug the printer, Device Discovery window will appear
Select the connectivity of the printer and configure your printer.
Click Add printer and complete the printer setup process.
