    printer won't print unless I go to win10 and print something there, and then back to

    Mint 20.2 Sorry but hoping you know the answer.
    This one is a HP P1102w. It will recognize it, sometimes, or I can add it manually via cups, but I either get a 5012 communication error or it says it has printed and it hasen't.

    Getting very frustrated with this. I have 2 HP laser printers. It would be awfully nice if I could get them to work when I ask them to rather than having to boot to win10, which I keep trying to leave...

    Any help?
