E: Unable to locate package cups-filter

Anyone know how to install package cups-filter on Zorin OS 15.3?

I am trying to use my HP Laserjet Pro MFP M148fdw scanner.

The printer works great but the scanner can not be found?

I have Run:

sudo apt install hplip hplip-gui

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
hplip is already the newest version (3.17.10+repack0-5).
hplip-gui is already the newest version (3.17.10+repack0-5).

But when I try to Run the command hp-setup

I get this error:

Command 'hp-setup' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install hplip

( hplip is already installed - see above )

Please help...



CTRL ALT F2 to enter terminal...

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hplip hplip-data hplip-doc hpijs-ppds hplip-gui hplip-dbg printer-driver-hpcups printer-driver-hpijs printer-driver-pxljr

Now run this command...

/usr/bin/hp-setup --gui

If that fails run...

sudo -i /usr/bin/hp-setup --gui

I am hopeful that this will get you going.

OK, I just discovered that terminal is incompetent to installing the GUI, not sure why. Instead I had to search for HPLIP in 'Synaptic Package Manager' and install the GUI there.

You should already have Synaptic Package Manager installed on Zorin, but if its not, you can install it by typing in this command...

sudo apt-get install synaptic

Once you launch synaptic, click on 'Search'

Type in HPLIP

Look for HPLIP-GUI

Right click, and click on Mark For Installation

Click The Apply Button.

Now, when you run this command, the GUI should launch just fine...

/usr/bin/hp-setup --gui
