How to Manually Install the HPLIP Source Code Tarball

Applies To
HPLIP Version: 
Linux OS Distribution(s): 
Required Steps: 

Even though we recommend using the Automatic Installation process to install HPLIP, the manual installation is a more traditional method to download and install HPLIP. However, bear in mind that it is more technically involved and may require a degree of knowledge that new Linux users find more difficult than they would prefer. Specifically, the process requires that you manually install dependencies and run build and install commands in a console/terminal. If you decide you would like to pursue this method then follow the directions on our Manual Installation Instructions page.
