Help!!!
I just bought a new HP LaserJet m140we.
I installed it on my Linux Mint 20.3 una.
It recognizes the printer.

However, it will not even print a test page.
I have an idea that there is a driver missing somewhere along the way.
I do get this message:

I don't know where to find the meaning of the error (5012).
I am confused.
Thanks in advance for your help. (Or anyone else who might help).

This link my help you as it is HP device manager that I use plus going of memory since it is while since I set this up on my computer
Go to the downloads and you can down load it from there. Also just browser around the site to familiarise yourself with it you may encounter things that are useful to remember for ron later on that is.

May have something for you, Charlie.

I ran a Google search with keywords

linux driver HP LaserJet m140we 3.21.10

then confined the search to linux results

"linux" driver HP LaserJet m140we 3.21.10

That lead me to a page

https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2021/11/hplip-3-21-10-debian-11-zorin-os-support/

and within that to a link



From that page, you can see 3.21.10 about 5 down, so go for that?

See how you go and let us know.

Cheers

Chris,
I found all the things you mentioned.
Downloaded them and installed them according to the directions.
Results so far are the same.
Next I went to another desktop I have and installed LM 19:3, thinking that it has been around a while and still has support until 2023. Downloaded and installed the current 3.22.6 per their instructions. No success.
The printer will still print what you see in #12 above, but will not print even a test page.
I can understand why it prints those two items in #12. Those are already part of the printer itself, it does not have need of any drivers.
I will keep on poking around the internet and LM and HP to see if I can find anything that will help.
Many thanks to all you folks for your concern for me.

PS I will post back here as soon as I have any good news to report.
