ImportError:No Module named 'cupsext'

HPLIP Version: 

   Extension modules are missing from the current Python path "/usr/lib/python<version>/dist-packages".
This happens when HPLIP is installed using one python version and you are running HPLIP using another python version.
For example, HPLIP was installed using python2.x and running the tools using python3.x

Please ensure to run HPLIP tools using the same version of Python which was used for HPLIP installation or re-install HPLIP from http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html
