Bug Description

I tried this time compiling hplip with qt5 support and no qt4 support trying to force the use of qt5.
I have previously installed qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.9.4 and even then the installer complains about the lack of Python-Qt5.
The problem is that the names listed in the installer report do not match the package names in the Ubuntu repositories and this has been a long time and has never been healed.
To solve this problem, I tried to install via synaptic manager all the python-pyqt5 of the repositories, python something dbus and even then complained about the lack of Python-Qt5.
After some more research and to reread the report I decided to download and install from the Ubuntu repository these files:
libqt5core5a_5.9.4 + dfsg-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb, python-olefile_0.44-1_all.deb,
libqt5dbus5_5.9.4 + dfsg-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb, python-pil_4.1.1-3build2_amd64.deb,
A combination of these files, others I had already installed as I mentioned earlier using the synaptic manager and the previous installation of Qt5 Creator resolved the conflict and I was able to compile manually with the options without qt4 support, no documents installed, no network and no support fax machine installed.
Unfortunately when I finished the compilation and since it had been the launcher of the previous installation it did not boot. I had to launch hp-toolbox from the terminal and new error messages appeared.
After intense search for internet dropping in forums most of them on programming in C or python I discovered that I need to give more these 3 commands every session that I initiate for hp-toolbox to work, since neither in the LXDE interface it adds to systray like it does when it is not compiled with Qt5 support only.
The commands are:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH = / usr / lib / x86_64-linux-gnu / qt5 / Tools / QtCreator / lib / Qt / lib
export QT_LIBRARY_PATH = / usr / lib / x86_64-linux-gnu / qt5 / Tools / QtCreator / lib / Qt / lib
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH = / usr / lib / x86_64-linux-gnu / qt5 / Tools / QtCreator / lib / Qt / plugins
Although the interface does open, it still has an error message about the lack of Python 2.3+ and that the fax support was turned off.
Very strange because the hp-check report and the hp-doctor report did not report any missing dependencies.
I recompiled again with the same values ​​except for enabling fax support and believe it or not, without this misery gives an error that does not correspond to reality.
However it follows the same problem in the LXDE interface it does not initialize by the launcher, having to open by the terminal and it does not stay in the tray.
In Gnome the HD Device Manager has never been on the tray since a long time and is something that has never been solved.

Hi Macros,

Ubuntu 18.04 official version is yet to be released. Once we have the official version released in month of April, we will provide the support in HPLIP.

Currently HPLIP supports the latest version of Ubuntu 17.10 and you can download the latest version of HPLIP from the website –
