    Question HPLIP Toolbox "No System Tray Detected On This System"

    Hello,

    I just upgraded to 12.10 and I got the following message on boot-up:

    HPLIP STATUS SERVICE:
    No system tray detected on this system.
    Unable to start, exiting.

    Are you installing from the repository or the much newer version from HP?

    I had that error and ignored it for a while as I use gnome-panel and assumed it was related. But I think the latest update from HP fixed it. But I do not have that printer on my desktop so not sure now.

    HP's newest On this website you can download the HPLIP software which supports 2,211 HP printers on nearly any Linux distribution available today.

    Ubuntu's older
    sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
    gksudo hp-setup
    # new version
    hp-upgrade

    No system tray error:
    open up the "startup applications" editor from the admin menu.
    add a new program, for the command put:
    sleep 10;/usr/bin/hp-systray
