Installing HPLIP (version 3.12.11), I am stuck with next message:

error: Configure failed with error: General/unknown error

and I'm lost ! What can I do? My system is Ubuntu 11.10. HPLIP Installer ver. 5.1.

My objective: Installing printer HP 6600. Many thanks.

Have you tried installing from the repos. From my understanding hplip is pre-installed. –  Karthik Dec 9 '12 at 7:50
Many thanks. HP 6600 remains unrecognized. But HP-Officejet-6500-e709n seems rather satisfactory. William Rey –  William REY Dec 23 '12 at 8:31
