    hp printer connection problems

    Hi, I upgraded to ubuntu 20.04.
    My printer hp envy photo 6230 no longer works well: I install it and it works, but sometimes after I turn it on it is not detected.
    In that case I have to disconnect and reconnect the cable and then it is recognized.
    With ubuntu 18.04 this didn't happen to me. I have already uninstalled ippusbxd,
    which was preventing the printer from being recognized, but the connection problem keeps occurring (I have tried several usb ports of my PC).
    Thanks!

    Problems like this can happen when upgrading. I know that doesn't help you and I am sorry. But, a looong time ago I learned NOT to do upgrades. I backup everything and always do clean installs to prevent weird issues like this.

    Although the above is anecdotally true, the problem you describe may not be related with the release upgrade.
    As such, I suggest testing a live session before anything else.

    Hi, I did a clean install of ubuntu 20.04. I wrote "upgraded" because I had ubuntu 18.04 before

    I am always intrigued by someone with a modern printer using HPLIP. Is this habit? Printing has moved on to better things.

    There is an alternative?
