Leap 42 provided a “Manage printers” option in the System launcher menu. New installation of Leap 15 doesn’t. It was necessary to install system-config-printer, (which then provided “Print settings” in the menu) - before I could install my HP printer. And it wasn’t an easy job.
There also seems to be a lack of CUPS support, but I’m not sure what bits are missing.
CUPS comes with it’s own CLI tools and aweb interface for configuration. (Various distros/DEs supply additional configuration tools such as system-config-printer, and the yast printer utility. As John already mentioned, install the ‘hplip’ package if HP printer support is required.
Ok thanks for the hint. I don’t recall having to install hplip manually before. And the CUPS interface etc has usually been part of the installation process, so I was a bit puzzled when I couldn’t see them.
I think I was prompted to install hplip by the printer installation wizard. All is now well.
