Connect HP Printer (USB) with Colibri iMX7

Hi,

I am using Colibri iMX7, I build image with cups and hplip installed.

Now I am trying to setup Hp printer it is giving Error as “Verifying archive integrity…Error in MD5 checksums: d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e is different from edc14f4c30e4a8e994a804ffc797e03a” and setup advances further and then it gives error as “No PPD found for model laserjet_professional_p1106 using old algorithm.” so I downloaded PPD file and specified path then error accurs as “Printer queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again.” I restared cups and done all process agin and agin I got same result, then I tryed downloading file “hplip-3.12.6-plugin.run” and specifiled path again results same

Please someone hep me with this.

Dear @bharatsabne,

Thank you for contacting Toradex Community

Could you please verify if your CONFIG_USB_PRINTER in your .config file is enabled? If not, could you please ENABLE this setting and re-compile your colibri_imx7 kernel by using make menuconfig. Here is the link for Kernel re-compilation reference.

If you access the printer via cups you may only have to install cups with opkg update && opkg install cups. If this doesn’t work, try to enable CONFIG_USB_PRINTER in the kernel as well.

Regards,

Ashok

Hi @ashok.tx

Thank you for your response, I build image CONFIG_USB_PRINTER =Y and also installed cups and hplip still getting same error

Dear @bharatsabne,

I’m working on the same. I will get back to you ASAP.

hi @ashok.tx,
Thank you for your reply,
I am getting error on hplip-3.12.6-plugin.run this file this might be a cause of failing setup?

hi @bharatsabne

Where did you get this hp-setup programm? Did you compile this for ARM architecture?

Best regards,
Jaski

hi @jaski.tx
while building image I put
IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " cups hplip" along with others under build/config/local.conf file after running bitbake command it got compiled

Hi

Thanks for this information.
I mean, where you get ‘hp-setup’ program?

Thanks and best regards,
Jaski

I did not install hp-setup it was there already

Hi @bharatsabne

Thanks for your Input.

Actually using hplib and cups, printing with a HP Printer should work. Could you try to add pyhton-dbus to your image and check if this solves the issue with hp-setup.

Best regards,
Jaski

sure @jaski.tx, I’ll try and let you know

Ok, I will wait for your results.

Hi @jaski.tx ,
wasn’t able to build image with dbus-python, however I tried with pip
gives an error as follows
