I was pleased to find a new way to install my HP-1018 with a usb connection on a desktop running ubuntu 10.4 Lucid. So far HPLIP fails.
After following the install steps i received this message when starting system-config:
gerard@gerard-desktop:~$ sudo system-config-printer
[sudo] password for gerard:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py", line 84, in <module>
import cupshelpers, options
File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/cupshelpers/__init__.py", line 45, in <module>
from cupshelpers import \
ImportError: cannot import name Device
Now when I use the gui System--> administration-->printers, the programs hangs then gives-up.
What's causing this? How do I fix it?
Still printer does not print--fine in windows.
Thanks in advance.
