Attention: This thread is work in progress - feel free to give hints to make this solution fully independent of "written elsewhere expert knowledge".


The following issues have to be overcome yet:
  • HPLIP.tcz is dependend on LIBUSB-COMPAT.tcz
  • accessing https://box:631/admin fails --> encryption requirement switched off
  • physically connecting the printer leads to udevd[PID]: failed to execute '/lib/udev/bin/sh' 'bin/sh -c '/usr/local/bin/hp-mkuri -c &'': No such file or directory
  • trying to print a test page fails because LJ1000 requires "proprietary plugin", hp-plugin fails to run this but /bin/sh hplip-3.11.5-plugin.run --noexec --keep && plugin_tmp/hplip-plugin-install works - still CUPS pretends Filter failed, hp-testpage says Channel read error, hp-check says hpijs-install=no but this printer needs hpijs

@Juanito: I saw this thread already but linked to another wiki which describes the necessary steps in more detail.

I don't doubt the linked information from your thread will work. But I want to create a start-from-scratch manual to get a fully working AirPrint server.
