Bug Description

On Archlinux with HPLIP 3.16.11 i get the following error:

D [12/Jan/2017:19:52:58 +0100] [Job 1129] File \"/usr/share/hplip/base/\", line 109, in to_bytes_utf8
D [12/Jan/2017:19:52:58 +0100] [Job 1129] return s.encode(\"utf-8\")
D [12/Jan/2017:19:52:58 +0100] [Job 1129] UnicodeEncodeError: \'utf-8\' codec can\'t encode characters in position 44-45: surrogates not allowed
D [12/Jan/2017:19:52:58 +0100] [Job 1129] PID 16062 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpps) stopped with status 1.

i fixed it with, changing line 109 and line 113 in /usr/share/hplip/base/ to the following fixes the problem:
return s.encode("utf-8", errors="surrogateescape")

maybe you can include the fix upstream

Changed in hplip:
status: New → Fix Committed
