hplip 2.7.10 is not working with cups 1.3.4
printer: HP DeskJet 5940
error: Printer queue setup failed.Please restart CUPS and try again.
Restarting and reinstallation of cups not solves the problem.
hplip 2.7.10 fails because of cups 1.3.4
fix: downgrade to cups 1.3.3
(remember: it is not enough to downgrade cups, you also have to restart cups service to make hplip working)
for hplip developers: how to reproduce cups 1.3.4 problem:
1. install cups 1.3.4
2. restart cupsd service
3. run hp-toolbox - it will not find printer -> hp-setup will start
During setup the folowing error messages appear:
"PPD not file found." (this is not typing mistake this is real messagebox text)
when hp-setup finishes, on last page, "Printer queue setup failed."
4. downgrade to cups 1.3.3
5. run hp-toolbox to make sure you still get errors
6. restart cupsd service
7. run hp-toolbox -> works
