Laserjet p1109w
Linux

I'm trying to install a LaserJet p1109w under Debian Linux. The printer installs and is recognised just fine, but it needs a proprietary plug-in to print properly, and attempting to download the plug-in with hp-plugin gives the following error

 

 

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.16.8)
Plugin Download and Install Utility ver. 2.1

Checking for network connection...
Downloading plug-in from:
error: Plugin download failed with error code = 127
error: file does not match its checksum. File may have been corrupted or altered

Done.

 

 

As you can see, the installer bombs once it sees this checksum error, and I can't get past this point. There is a way to use a plugin which you already have, but I don't have the file, and I can't find any other way to get it other than to use the installer. 

 

I tried HP's support. Phone support directed me to chat support, chat support told me they only dealt with Windows and Mac and referred me back to the original site from which I got hplip. 

 

Obviously this is just going round and round in circles. Before I pack the printer up and send it back to Amazon, does anybody know of another way to get a copy of the plugin file?

OK, thanks to one of the people on the Debian users mailing list, I have the solution. 

 

1) Uninstall the copy of HPLIP which you probably have installed from your distro's repositories. At least for the Debian version, it's not recognised. 

 

2) Download and install HPLIP from 

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/laserjet/hp_laserjet_professional_p1109w.html

 

3) Go to

https://www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/

and download the latest *.run.

 

4. 'mkdir plugin' and move your file into it.

 

5. The file is a shell script containing needed plugins and other files.
Make it executable with 'chmod 755 *.run' and look at its help with
'./*.run -h'.

 

6. Check what you are going to install by using './*.run --tar vxf' to
extract the files from the script.

 

7. Install (as root) with './*.run'.

 

Works for me, at any rate.
