Linux

I‘m trying to install latest version of Hewlett-Packard’s Linux Imaging and Printing software (HPLIP) for my office jet printer. In order to install latest version of HPLIP I removed the hplip-gui, hplip, hplip-cups, hplip-data, hpijs, and hpijs-ppds Debian Linux packages However, I’m getting the following error:

Debian warning: CUPSEXT could not be loaded. Please check HPLIP installation.



How do I fix this error while installing hplip-3.12.9.run under Debian Linux 6.0.5 amd64 bit?

But getting the following warning on screen and it is not working:

I often type the wrong command as follows under Linux bash shell:
rsync -av dir1 user@server1.cyberciti.biz:/path/to/dir1
OR
cp -av file1*.txt file2*.txt /path/to/dest

I need to correct those command as follows:

rsync -av dir5 user@server1.cyberciti.biz:/path/to/dir1
cp -av delta1*.txt delta2*.txt /path/to/dest

How do I replace dir1 with dir5 or file with delta and repeat the last command under bash shell?
