I borked my install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and had to reinstall the OS. I didn't tinker with my /home partition, just reinstalled the OS to the /root partition.
When I download and install HPLIP 3.14.10 from the HP website, no matter how many times I run the setup GUI, I end up with the same error. To retrace my steps,
- I select Network/Ethernet/Wireless/ option and click Next.
- My device (HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw) is recognized and I press the Next button
- I select Download and Install ... and press Next
- Error Message: /home/****/.hplip/hplip-3.14.10-plugin.run file does not match its checksum.File may have been corrupted or altered
Used sudo to copy the relevant .ppd files (printer and fax) from my 14.04 LTS laptop to /etc/cups/ppd but the setup won't recognize .ppd files, only .run files.
Does any one have any ideas of what I can do? Is there a way to download the appropriate .run file(s) outside setup? BTW, I have no "checksum" data in the ~./hplip folder ... so I don't know what setup is using as the compare.
Please help. I'm desperate because this is my work computer and I need to be able to print and scan to earn a living.
P.S. I downloaded the plugin and checksum from www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/ and ran a compare. The following error was reported: gpg: can't open `hplip-3.14.10.run.asc' gpg: verify signatures failed: file open error
Got the same error when I ran a compare on 3.14.6 and 3.14.1. Appears there is something amiss at the website.
Maybe that helps??
