Hello all.
I've faced a problem - the http://www.linuxprinting.org/ is closed for maintenance. And all programms and tools for setting up HP printers/MFPs try to connect to this website to download the plugin.

So, it means that without this site we can not get the required plugin and make the devices work.
I want to ask you if there's any other place where we can get that propriate plugin.

I tried the latest 3.11.7 hplip from hplipopensource.com. I tried 3.10.2 from native Ubuntu 10.04.3 repository.
All of them are trying to download the plugin from that site.
For exaple, I saw this link:
http://www.linuxprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/hplip-3.10.2-plugin.run
And this http://hplip.sf.net/plugin.conf which has inside the file the links to the linuxprinting.org. Openprinting.org also doesn't work, it leads to the linuxprinting.


So, the question is: where can we get that plugin?
Without it neither printer, no scanner works.

Best regards,
Alexey

Just install the latest hplip version from http://hplipopensource.com/ and then the downloaded plugin.

I am having this same problem, trying to set-up my HP 1018 with sudo apt-get install hplip and the installation fails because the proprietary plug in from http://www.openprinting.org/ is unavailable. The site has been down for days, any explanation why?

Jack:

Thanks for all those instructions. I followed it and they all worked fine, created a print queue and everything but it still won't print. I have no idea why. It sends jobs to the print queue but they never arrive and the print queue remains blank. Very frustrating.

My mistake. I tried rebooting the whole system and now it prints! Thank you!

glad to hear that !

frustration is evil, hp-setup should provide suggestions not just
errors.

I'll vote for that!

Thanks again for your help! I mostly use my printer for printing CD envelopes for giveaway CDs of Ubuntu, Lubuntu and Puppy Linux, so you got me back in production there!
