HP Linux Printing and Imaging System (HPLIP)
38 reviews

The HP Linux Printing and Imaging System provides full support for printing on most HP SFP (single function peripheral) inkjets and many LaserJets, and for scanning, sending faxes and for photo-card access on most HP MFP (multi-function peripheral) printers.

HPLIP is composed of:
* System services to handle communications with the printers
* HP CUPS backend driver (hp:) with bi-directional communication with
HP printers (provides printer status feedback to CUPS and enhanced
HPIJS functionality such as 4-side full-bleed printing support)
* HP CUPS backend driver for sending faxes (hpfax:)
* hpcups CUPS Raster driver to turn rasterized input from the CUPS
filter chain into the printer's native format (PCL, LIDIL, ...).
(hpcups is shipped in a separate package)
* HPIJS Ghostscript IJS driver to rasterize output from PostScript(tm)
files or from any other input format supported by Ghostscript, and
also for PostScript(tm) to fax conversion support
(HPIJS is shipped in a separate package)
* Command line utilities to perform printer maintenance, such as
ink-level monitoring or pen cleaning and calibration
* GUI and command line utility to download data from the photo card
interfaces in MFP devices
* GUI and command line utilities to interface with the fax functions
* A GUI toolbox to access all these functions in a friendly way
* HPAIO SANE backend (hpaio) for flatbed and Automatic Document Feeder
(ADF) scanning using MFP devices
USB, JetDirect (network) and parallel-port devices are supported.

5 Foarte util pentru imprimantele hp. Atentie la versiunea folositsa de hplip si versiunea sistemului. Cu 17.2 e posibil sa nu functioneze prea bine.

4 Had to install it from a site (thanks elstellino), because 17.2 bundled version did not work for my scanner. Now working ok, although shown as not installed in software manager.

3 I'am using Rafaela (after Rebecca) Cinnamon both 64-bit. Same HPLIP issue with both distros even using the latest HPLIP 3.15.6. Everything is working well with my HP AIO Pro 8610. The problem is HPLIP Satus Service is not working at all even disapearing. On the same HP laptop, Ubuntu 14.04.x doesn't have this issue. Would be nice that Linux Mint developpers could fix it. Thanks.

3 I successfully upgraded from LM Cinnamon 17.1 to 17.2. Unfortunately printing with hplip does not work any-more. Hplip asks me to 'Install Required Plugin', but the process fails. When installing the plug-in from an HP-authorised server the following error occures: /home/andras/.hplip/ file does not match its checksum. File may have been corrupted or altered

5 Without this my printer simply wouldn't work as smooth. Works perfectly on a DJ 3055A all in one. A royal PITA to install through, though.

5 If you have a HP printer, you will love this program, it shows the ink levels on your printer, if you have a all in one device, you can scan and fax too.
