    I'm running Kubuntu 14.04 and it's a fresh install, I have 3.15.9 installed and tried the automatic install of 3.15 11 and it failed so I tried a manual install, that failed too. I was told I need to install 'libtool', so I did. I tried to install 3.15.11 again, manually this time and it STILL told me 'libtool' was NOT installed. So, I gave up and I'm staying at 3.15.9. I will try a reboot later and see if that changes things...

    There is a problem with HPLIP working on Ubuntu 15.10. If you need to install HP Plugins for your printer the programm runs into an endless loop. The problem occurs independant from the HPLIP Version. Checked with version 3.15.7 from the Ubuntu Repo's and a fresh installed version 3.15.11. It seems to be a problem with switching into the sudo-environment, because the program prevents from being executed as root. The problem does not occure on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and HPLIP 3.14.3, where the programm needs to be executed as root.

    Fedora Core 23 XFCE x64 - hp-plugin hangs in GUI and interactive mode after: "Do you accept the license terms..." step. On Fedora Core 22 was the same:(

    It updates too often messing with all your settings and leaving you with phantom printers. If it is printing fine for me, then I need to be left alone and not pestered with you-have-to-click-me popups telling me that there is an update over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. This overrides the quality of the driver itself.

    I have not been able to get my HP LaserJet Professional P1102w printer to work in most linux distros I've been hopping to and from. It works OOB on xubuntu, kubuntu and lubuntu. I have had it working previously in Fedora 16 and I believe CentOS 6.2. But I'm now in CentOS 6.2 again and can't get it to work at all. I even tried the foo2zjs driver and it won't work with that either. I have tried the hplip in the repos and even downloaded from hplip's site. Neither will work this time around. So I may continue to distro-hop for a while as I really don't like Canonical (hence the buntu's) so I'll shop around for other distros and try them. Good luck!
