I have the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M125nw all-in-one printer-scanner. In Ubuntu 14.10 I had it up and running using the hplip 3.15.7 (the latest from hplipopensource.com, not the repositories).

After upgrading Ubuntu to 15.04 the printing stopped working. I tried to remove and setup the printer again, no luck. I tried to remove hplip and install it again, no luck. Running hp-check gives no error whatsoever. What happens when I print something (e.g. test page from hp device manager) is following:

  • I issue printing (clicking print somewhere)
  • Printing ...
  • Started a job ...
  • Job completed ...
  • Printing stopped ...

all combined taking about 10 seconds. And when I look at job queue in the device manager there is one job with status "Stopped".

I am in the lp group.

Scanning works fine.

I really don't know where the problem could be because I think I checked everything (but apparently not). I need your help.

  • I'm having the same problems with a Color LaseJet MFP M277dw! – aba Sep 24 '15 at 9:27

I issued a bug on launchpad and received a comment there:

This is an issue with hplip 3.15.7 drivers. I have provided the patch for the same in the bug report https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1476920. This issue will be resolved in our next version of hplip.

If you wish to go back to hplip-3.15.6. You can download the drivers from http://sourceforge.net/projects/hplip/files/hplip/3.15.6/hplip-3.15.6.run/download

Sorry for the inconvenience.

So it is the bug in hplip 3.15.7. Using the older 3.15.6 solves this problem. I recently upgraded to 3.15.9 and it works as well.

  • I have lplip Version: 3.14.3-0ubuntu3.4, but have similar with my HP Laserjet printer. – PHP Learner Feb 22 '16 at 10:08
