Trouble installing printer: HP OfficeJet Pro 6960

Running sudo hp-setup to install.
It can’t locate a PPD file for the printer, and won’t remember my choice if I attempt to manually select it.

error: No PPD found for model officejet_pro_6960 using old algorithm.
error: No appropriate print PPD file found for model officejet_pro_6960
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/hplip/ui5/", line 1317, in NextButton_clicked
  File "/usr/share/hplip/ui5/", line 1011, in addPrinter
    print_sts = self.setupPrinter()
  File "/usr/share/hplip/ui5/", line 1050, in setupPrinter
    if not os.path.exists(self.print_ppd[0]): # assume foomatic: or some such
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not subscriptable

Any other way I can get the printer connected and working, or how I can resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance.

Hi @redbrain144 :wink:

Install system-config-printer:

pamac install  system-config-printer

and configure it there. There should be a shortcut in the menu.

I have an HP 8610 OfficeJet. Using CUPS to connect the printer works perfectly.
