I have a failed install of Hp printer at http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/distros/ubuntu.html What I need help with is how do I Delete the printer software so I can reinstall. Also am I python 2 or 3? in 16.04 64 bit? I accidentally downloaded HPLIP double clicked the file and got an error message and clicked continue. Then I attempted a manual install i got
:~$ sudo hp-setup [sudo] password for HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.16.3) Printer/Fax Setup Utility ver. 9.0 Copyright (c) 2001-15 HP Development Company, LP This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.

I had an error when using: Ubuntu 15.10 and 16.04 in python3 environment:
seemed to run when i used: Ubuntu 12.04 and above in python2 environment:
I have no idea whether I am python3 or python2.
I think once I know whether I am python3 or python2 I need to know how to completely uninstall my mistakes and then attempt a reinstall. I am a beginner so I may need to cut and paste the code for deleting my messed up install.
I am installing a HP officejet pro 8600. I can scan with simple scan and I print with my brother laserjet. Should i give up and just use simplescan since my 8600 does not even have ink. I was trying to get better scanning software.
Thank you for looking and any help.
