Having seen that Tara installed the printer and done a test to make sure it had done so I thought nothing else of it. Then my wife tried to scan a document to her lap top and couldn’t. I thought it was something she was doing wrong either within Libre Office or with the print options. So I looked at these and she wasn’t.
I then thought I’d just re-install the printer HP ENVY 5530 so added the printer and also added the duplex which I had done in previous versions of Mint and then tried again. The scanner has worked perfectly since doing.
To be honest I wouldn’t have thought about doing any further checking if my wife had not had this problem. This is why I am mentioning this, because many of us are fairly new to Linux and wont think to check if our printer shows up as working.
