Description Tomasz Torcz 2015-08-01 05:14:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Some HP printers require closed-source plugin to be installed. The version must match hplip, so after each upgrade user have to run "hp-plugin -i".
Latest version added apparently misguided code preventing running the command as root, thus making installation impossible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "hp-plugin -i"

Actual results:
error: hp-plugin should not be run as root/superuser

Expected results:
Plugin should be installed

And does it work when you run it as non-root ?

(Also bug #1249414)
Comment 2 Tomasz Torcz 2015-08-11 12:02:27 EDT
It doesn't work as non-root. The behaviour is exactly like in bug#1249414 – if I ssh into the machine and run ”hp-plugin -i” as an user, it hangs during the process.
In process list I see that ”su” is invoked by hp-plugin. But nothing is displayed on screen and no input is working.

My computer is used as a print server. The plugin needs to be installed system-wide. There is no user locally printing on this computer, everything is network-printed via CUPS.
