Title: there was an error during the CUPS operation server error internal error
Post by: alender5 on June 23, 2022, 09:34:08 PM
There is another post on the same topic.  The prompt on that page suggested a new thread as the old one has gone 120 days with no comment.

I am trying to connect LL 5.8 to an HP Deskjet 4155e as a wireless network printer.  I have downloaded the HP software.  I have tried the installation instructions in the manual.  I have connected the printer to my laptop via USB. Regardless of the method I attempt, the answer is always <there was an error during the CUPS operation server error internal error>. 

Printer setup shows that is sees the printer.  5 attempts at printing a test page have resulted in document being held.

How can I accomplish this task? 

FWIW, Linux in general has shown me that I am truly a semi-technophobe.

I did not expect this issue.  I have been using Ubuntu MATE for 3 years and it recognized this printer with no problem. 

I have really enjoyed trying Linux Lite again - second time around.  I would like to use it as my primary OS.  I need to be able to print.
