I tried to do a couple of scans this evening, and got an error that my system needed a plugin to perform the scan.
All of my scan applications gave that error “plugin required”.
xsane was active for all pf the following:
It gave me 2 choices.
1- search on the web(I assume HP? )
2- install from local.
Since I don’t have that plugin ‘local’, I let it do the search.
Then a popup came up saying the plugin was ready, and ‘root’ password required.
I did that in xsane scanned. It was slow, (REALLY SLOW) but eventually the scan came through.
Did I mess up? Is there a system plugin that I could have installed from zypper or YaST?
Is there a way to make scans faster for this multi-function HP printer?
PS; I am just guessing the upgrade to Leap 15.2 took out the ‘plugin’ that was installed, since this is the first time I have scanned after the upgrade.
Sorry all, I am late getting back because I have had other old age problems to contend with.
The susepaste I have included link to is only good for a week, Like the noobie I tend to be, I forgot to change it.
Here is that last part of hp-check log file. suse-paste would not allow me to post all of it. Too large, but the top half was mostly just information. https://susepaste.org/93063798
most of the ‘red’(missing) in my original output in terminal to me was the fact that the DBus was missing.
Yes I tried that, and the setup ended with asking me to if I wanted to add another queue.
Actually, originally I used YaST to install using hplip. That was way back in the original release of Leap 15.
I think I have the version that was installed with hplip. Not 100% sure however, but 95% sure
SO big question, Should I re-install hplip in YaST? OR???
There are some warnings at the beginning of hp-check that I should have found yesterday, Sorry, that lot of text was confusing.

I am at a loss as to what hplip version I should have, why V3.19.12 is installed, and what I should do to correct if any!
THANKS for all that. But what about the missing DBus? Isn’t it also necessary?
What are the packages that show your name after the description?
Besides, on the desktop connected via USB cable it scans, albeit slowly. I can’t think of anything I want to scan from the network with either of the WiFi laptops because the printer is way far away from them.
But what about the missing DBus? Isn’t it also necessary?
I think its dbus-1-devel.
So please run hp-check once more as User, one time with the Printer connected via USB, one time with printer connected via Wifi.
You get a log in your /home/USERNAME called hp-check.log, which you have to save before you run hp-check with Wifi.
Save both files to a File-server or paste them on paste.opensuse.org and post the URL you get here.
NOTE: I both cases the printer unit was still connected to the desktop with a USB cable, but when I did the laptop check the desktop was shut down. I could ‘print’ from the laptop without hplip sine the printer is WiFi enabled.
