Thread: hp toolbox doesn't recognise printers

    Default hp toolbox doesn't recognise printers

    I cannot get the hp toolbox to work, whether I set up my printer with Yast or hp toolbox.

    This is the annotation for hplip that displays in Yast:

    "Since HPLIP 2.8.4 hpssd is gone. Stop in any case"

    Hi
    Have you tried the hp-setup (run as root user) program rather that the
    other two methods you have tried?

    I have never been able to get hp toolbox to run and I've never had any difficulty setting up printers using Yast.

    I tried running hp-setup as root, but toolbox still does not see my printer.
