Printer Issue (HP LaserJet P1102w) on parrot os

I have a HP LaserJet P1102w, How do I connect it to Parrot OS??


CPU: 11th Gen Intel i7-1165G7 (8) @ 4.700GHz
Kernel: 5.14.0-9parrot1-amd64
OS: Parrot OS 5.0 (LTS) x86_64
Host: HP ProBook 450 G8 Notebook PC
DE: Plasma 5.20.5

These steps should work:

  1. run sudo dnf install gutenprint
  2. run sudo apt install hplip

Update and / or restart your system and look for printer option inside Menu.

sudo dnf install gutenprint
Unable to detect release version (use ‘–releasever’ to specify release version)
Error: There are no enabled repositories in “/etc/yum.repos.d”, “/etc/yum/repos.d”, “/etc/distro.repos.d”.

Okay, follow this link to get it working:

If you still haven’t, install Snap Store . This store helps to install useful apps on Linux.

There is no option for print (as hard copy) or printer name??
I did everything mentioned above.
I also noticed there is no printer options in system settings…

@Bug_Hunter , kindly open LibreOffice Draw on your Parrot OS, open the doc you want to print, then click file and print to prepare the doc for print. All your printers should be visible, as the below screenshot shows on my Parrot Security . Otherwise, your printer may have a connection issue as far as it seems.

same as it is,
It shows generic printer whereas in windows and parrot 4.11 (LibreOffice) the printer’s name was written in this place.
and I don’t think it is a connection issue because in internet is working fine and I also connected to the printer’s network.

and one more thing I want to add is that in parrot 4.11 when I try to find the printer in settings. it at least displays the name of my printer still not printing my document but displays an error saying print job failed…

@Bug_Hunter , thanks for clarifying ; I think it may be debugged by upgrading your Parrot 4.11 to 5.x . I am using Parrot OS 5 now and printing works smoothly in it .

I am using Parrot 5.

And was trying to tell that, printer WAS showing in parrot 4.11 but not in Parrot 5…

BTW I am still looking for help.


after hitting enter with generic printer…

Would you try the command below and restart?

sudo apt install system-config-printer

Yeah Now at least it is showing in menu,
Thank you for kindness…

You’re welcome :parrot:
