Bug Description

Hi

I tried to install the HPLIP 3.12.2 for my new HP Photosmart 5510 on Kubuntu 11.10, but the installation finally failed after automatic downloading of dependencies and conflict resolution.

The hplip-3.12.2.run shell script aborts with "error: Configure failed with error: python-devel not found"

Terminal Output:

$ sh hplip-3.12.2.run

Installing a package called »python-dev« resolved the problem.

sudo apt-get install python-dev

Hi,

Auto installer of hplip-3.12.2 checks the dependencies missing and install them. For python-devel the installer installs the python-dev package. We have included this package in the hplip-3.12.2/installer/distro.dat file under the section [ubuntu:11.04]
[ubuntu:11.04:python-devel]
packages=python-dev

[Ubuntu:11.10] has the token same_as_version=11.04 which will pick the dependency package from [ubuntu:11.04]
 section.

Not sure what caused the missing of the python-dev package in the dependency installation.

I tried to reproduce the same on the fresh installation of ubunut 11.10 but could not reproduce it.

Marking this bug as invalid as we are not able to reproduce it.

Thanks,
Goutam Kodu

I had the same "Configure failed with error: python-devel not found" problem using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I performed the apt-get install python-dev as suggested and it worked OK.
