    install HP Envy 4500 printer

    I am in a rental place that has the subject printer. I have a wired connection. Using Ubuntu 19.10.

    Following HP directions on line I downloaded hplip 3.20.3 and attempted to run it. Ends in errors after long attempt to activate. What's missing here?

    Thanks, stuck in AZ

    Please install HPLIP (and hplip-gui) from the repositories. Ubuntu 19.10 should include a version new enough to support your printer.

    THe printer prints now, but only is a very basic way. No control to speak of. Will it be any better if I do the installations above?
