HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

[ Edited ]

Hi,merry christmas!!I have a problem with the installation of my printer!Firstly i have Ubuntu and i try to install my printer via HPLIP!I connected my printer with an ethernet cable to my router!HPLIP found the printer and when i accept the license to install,it says that it needs a plug in!So when it tries to download it and install its says that the plug in failed to install!Also,as i can remember i have the option to do it on my own with an excisting local copy of the plug in file!!Could someone help me to find this plug in and install it on my own!!????

 

Model:HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP

 

Update:when it returns to the windows that shows me the model of my printer,HPLIP also says "

The printer you are trying to setup requires a binary driver plug-in and it failed to install.

Please check your internet connection and try again.

Visit http://hplipopensource.com for more infomation."

 

Thank you very much!

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

I am here to jump on the "me too" wagon.  I have a HP LaserJet M1212nf MFP that I would like to use with Ubuntu 10.10.  It gave me a warm fuzzy when Ubuntu correctly identified my printer.  Alas, it did not last. Seems that it requires a binary driver plug-in from www.hplipopensource.com, which has been down for maintenance the past two weeks.

HPLIP supplied tarball has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.                                                    
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode will check both of the above cases (both compile- and

mike@ubuntu:~$
   -------------------------------------------------------------------

I looked in the synaptic package manager and found nothing that looks like "libnetsnmp-devel". Does it go by another name in Ubuntu?

What are the names of the "required plugins", where do I find them, and how do I install them?

One more thing I have no clue about is the dialog box that pops up and says "HPLIP Status Service: No system tray detected on this system. Unable to start, exiting."

I do not care if the fax and scanner does not work but I would really like to print.

Fuggudaboutit.  I thrashed around until the problem went away.  I think that HP getting their opensource web site back up is what made the difference. It irks my guts that they would just casually leave it down for so long. Perhaps it is better now. I will never know.        Some of the places I looked for answers were:

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

Can't finish installation of the printer under Ubuntu 11.10 64bit.

 

after running hp-setup and discovering the above printer manually (it didn't find it automatically on my LAN network) I click next and then get the message:

 

Visit http://hplipopensource.com for more infomation.

The printer you are trying to setup requires a binary driver plug-in and it failed to install.

Please check your internet connection and try again.

My internet connection works of course. (that's why I can send this post)

 

I don't get the ppd file, so please any help?

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

Same issue here (64-bit Ubuntu 11.10 and HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi), resolved by running:

 

sudo hp-plugin -g

 

Hope this helps,

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

My problem is that www.openprinting.org is not available. That HP is not able to keep their download server for their printer drivers available simply sucks. And that their install utility isn't displaying a proper message is even worse.

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

I'd rather run

 

sudo hp-plugin -d

 

confirm download, and install.

 

Cups must be configured with hpslip, choosing to use the driver that requires the proprietary plugin (guess what you downloaded the step before).

 

it goes in seconds.

 

cheers

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

Wow,

 

that's impressive. My hp-plugin version

 

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.11.12)
Plugin Download and Install Utility ver. 2.1

 

doesn't even have the option -d.

 

And if I install hp-setup it installs the local printer driver and then it wants to download the a plugin from www.openprinting.org. And if I ping this address it fail to reach it, because it is not available. I can print but I can not fax or scan.

Re: HP LaserJet Professional M1212nf MFP!Installation problem!

Howdy all. I was having the same problem, installed the latest version of the hplib software found at http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/gethplip.html took as much as 20 minutes to install and when it checked for drivers they finally installed and the printer now works just fine (I have only tried printing) Hope this helps someone.
