I updated my ubuntu to 20.10 Groovy Gorilla and now the above happens.

I got the logs above with this command: sudo tail -n 100 -f /var/log/cups/error_log

I have tried going to http://localhost:631 in browser and have deleted and reinstalled printer with every driver for my printer model. The error in cups is always the same stopped "Filter failed" after I try printing a test page. The ink level shows up in my printer settings correctly. I can print from this printer from windows on the same pc when I boot from my windows partition.

I have also run the following commands successfully:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo service cups restart

sudo apt-get install hpijs-ppds printer-driver-hpijs

sudo service cups restart

sudo rm /usr/share/ghostscript/9.52/iccprofiles
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgs9-common 

sudo service cups restart 

The printer I bought is: HP LaserJet Pro M15w Wireless Laser Printer

The driver I install in CUPS is: HP LaserJet m14-m17, hpcups 3.21.2 (grayscale)

thanks for any help :)


Try this:

1) sudo apt purge hplip hplip-gui printer-driver-hpcups
2) sudo apt autoremove
3) sudo apt update 
4) sudo apt upgrade
5) sudo apt install hplip hplip-gui printer-driver-hpcups <+ anything that's removed in the last steps>
6) sudo service cups restart
7) sudo apt-get install hpijs-ppds printer-driver-hpijs
8) sudo service cups restart
9) hp-plugin

:) I'm not sure if 7 and 8 is essential... I make all by tips... and nothing, then 9 save me! I have HP cp1025
