Printer HP Laser Jet 1018 does not work properly

Postby Beginner » 20 Mar 2020 01:29

When I used Solyd x 9 I had no problem with my HP Printer, but after having changed to 10 the Printer does not work correctly. It tells me:
HP device requires proprietary plug-in, which is missing.
Unable to receive key from key server.
Is there anyone in the community who has an idea how I can enable the system to receive the key?
Thanks in Av Beginner

This is most probably due to the gnupg key HP uses https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1818629.

HP explains the process here https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imag ... icate.html
I'm guessing that the keyserver is down due to last years keyserver attack.

Here's a tutorial how to get around the keyserver error: https://techpiezo.com/linux/fixed-insta ... ntu-19-04/. Be careful though to adjust the mentioned symbolic links because they are made for Ubuntu and our directory structure is slightly different. Just search for the correct file location and adapt the command.

Here's another advice: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1111714 ... -18-04-lts

hplip comes with a lot of (maybe useful) commands such as hp-setup, hp-plugin, hp-update (that one might ruin the prnting system), hp-testpage, hp-check and hp-doctor.

Also have a look at https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-S ... -p/7029775 - last post says it might be an apparmor issue.

It was impossible to install the printer with hplip, in the end I had limited success with footmatic/foo2zjs-z1 out of the repository.
Now I can print, when I start Windows 7 first. Than I have to close Wiindows and start SolidXK and I can print in our system as well. But for unknown reasons I cannot print just by starting solidxk, in this case the printer does not receive the datas from the printer and there is no queue inside the printer.
Has any one an idea what the reason might be?

sorry it has to read: " the printer does not receive the datas from the system"

Please open a terminal and post the output of

Code: Select all

lsusb
sudo lsusb
lpq -al
lpstat -a
lpstat -o
Do this with prior Windows boot and without, before and after a failed printjob.
Check whether the printer shows up here: http://localhost:631/printers/

I'm not sure this will result in anything, I have no experience with USB printing, cheap HP printers or foomatic. I'm guessing the printer needs a "wake-up signal" from Win which foomatic doesn't do.
