I have been having problems with my new HP 3830 OfficeJet. Whenever I
attempt to print from Ubuntu 16.04LTS, the print job is immediately
held, and when released, is immediately held again. When I print from a
Windows printer, there is no problem. I was able to print from Ubuntu
16.04LTS to my other printer, an old HP OfficeJet 6210, but in an
attempt to resolve my problem I followed a set of instructions I found
online today, which suggested that I execute the following four commands:
sudo apt purge cups cups-client cups-bsd
sudo apt purge hplip hpijs printer-driver-gutenprint
sudo apt install cups cups-client cups-bsdsudo apt install hplip
I do so, but now the Ubuntu 16.04LTS system doesn't think I have any
printers. When I attempt to print a text file (file -> print ) from
LibreOffice, no printers Does anyone have any suggestions?are listed
-only a suggestion that I write the output to a file.
Can anyone help?
Perhaps someone at NSLUG at Uncommon Grounds will have an idea tomorrow
