My LaserJet P1005 used to work fine after installing hplip in 11.10. Now it is not recognized when plugged in. No pop-up, nothing. Any ideas?
Download and install HPLIP directly from the HP OPEN SOURCE website. http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/downloads.html
Click on DOWNLOAD HPLIP. Find the downloaded file and right click on it and select PERMISSIONS. Select MAKE EXECUTABLE. Click OK.
Right click on the file again and select OPEN then EXECUTE. Follow the instuctions.
*Reason it works is mainly because it detects and installs dependencies that the apt-get or software center version won't.
