Hello ,

I can't install HP Printing driver using hplip , this is the error I am
getting :

17 ◯ : sudo -R hplip-plugin

sudo: invalid option -- 'R'


sudo is not a package manager, you shouldprobably use pacman for that ;).

AFAIK the package is already installed, the next step is to configure CUPS
to use this printer. It's been a while for me, but I remember that it was
very straightforward. You might want to check the ArchWiki for the details.
