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
