[SOLVED] HP Envy 5530 Network Printer and Scanner

I was having trouble getting this to work fully over my home LAN despite this HPLIP page that says it is recommended and everything works well. That is why I bought it.

So, I scoured the forums and wiki pages of Arch Linux and was able to get things working, so I wanted to share what worked for me.

1. Install HPLIP.

sudo pacman -S hplip

2. Enable the Avahi daemon.

sudo systemctl enable avahi-daemon.service

3. You may have to add your user to the lp and sys groups. I did this before enabling the Avahi daemon. Replace user with your user name.

sudo gpasswd -a user lp
sudo gpasswd -a user sys

4. Add the printer through the HPLIP software and search using mDNS. I was not able to find the printer on my network with the other options, and this is likely due to the fact that I enabled Avahi last as this was the piece I was missing.

Re: [SOLVED] HP Envy 5530 Network Printer and Scanner

This didn't help me at all. There is no explanation of how to add the printer through HPLIP software. It's not in any applications list that I can see and I don't know what the command line is for it or where it would be stored.

If I just go to printers it doesn't show up in the Gnome Shell interface.

Re: [SOLVED] HP Envy 5530 Network Printer and Scanner

I cannot get that same printer connected for the life of me doing everything mentioned.

Will the OP ever respond to a request for help?

Re: [SOLVED] HP Envy 5530 Network Printer and Scanner

Did you try running HPLIP as root?

I installed hplip but it says it can't find it.  Also I have a router that gives my printer static IP addresses: one day it'll be 192.168.1.101 and today it is 192.168.1.104. So I can't really put an IP address in as this page says:

http://www.cups.org/documentation.php/network.html

[cavsfan@arch-install ~]$ sudo pacman -S hplip
warning: hplip-3.15.6-1 is up to date -- reinstalling
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

Packages (1) hplip-3.15.6-1

Total Installed Size:  26.66 MiB
Net Upgrade Size:       0.00 MiB

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]
[cavsfan@arch-install ~]$ sudo hplip
[sudo] password for cavsfan: 
sudo: hplip: command not found

I've googled and searched for a week almost and no progress yet.

If I can get hplip to run though I think that would be the key.

I have Arch as my main OS now but I've also got Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela and 2 partitions with developmental installs of Ubuntu 15.10.

One Ubuntu 15.10 I was able to do this (which makes me think if I can get hplip running on Arch it'll work):

The first step had 3 options:
1) USB printer
2) network printer
3) network printer (that can connect one time with a USB cable).

I chose the 3rd option this time and it worked. It did not come with a USB cable but I used my old printer's cable and it worked great.
I just bought this HP ENVY 5530 all in one last weekend.

Thanks for any help!

Re: [SOLVED] HP Envy 5530 Network Printer and Scanner

I did manage to get a test page printed just now.

I entered hp-setup -i 192.168.1.104 and it asked a few questions and gave some errors but it did send a test page to the printer.

Before that hp-setup -i only gave these three options:

  0*        usb         Universal Serial Bus (USB)                                
  1         net         Network/Ethernet/Wireless (direct connection or JetDirect)
  2         par         Parallel Port (LPT:)   

I chose the 1 otion and it failed to find the printer. But when I supplied the ip address it printed a test page. I just wonder what it'll do when the IP address changes.

Here are the errors it gave me and I've tried to install:

error: HPLIP is not installed properly or is installed without graphical support. Please reinstall HPLIP
warning: Qt/PyQt 4 initialization failed.
error: hp-setup requires GUI support (try running with --qt3). Also, try using interactive (-i) mode.

Re: [SOLVED] HP Envy 5530 Network Printer and Scanner

Problem solved at last. I finally noticed that I could set up a manual static IP address through the front panel on the printer.

I had to select manual and then press suggest and it came back with this IP address.

Once I did that I just entered sudo hp-setup -i 192.168.001.237

I think maybe the zeros were important as I think it got an error the first time. Not positively sure about that but it did work with the above command.
