I can get it working over USB, but we really want this on the network.

The printer is an HP LaserJet Pro MFP m26nw, the OS is Mint 19.1 64 bit Mate.

After installing, the test page job changes to a "stopped" status and an error pops up that says, "there was a problem processing document 'test page'".

Here's the log output:

It looks like there's some issues there, but I'm not sure how to fix them. I've tried with Jetdirect and IPP and the hp protocol. I'm using an exact match driver from Hplip / foomatic when prompted for one (although one of the methods didn't ask for a driver). All produce the same results. What can I try?
