Has anyone managed to get HPLIP isnstalled and fully running on Beowulf?

hp-info works, with a gui interface.

hp-levels works on the command-line from a terminal.

hp-testpage brings up a gui and prints the testpage from there.

hp-toolbox is missing its soft link to /usr/share/hplip/toolbox.py. 
When I create the link and try to run it, I get the following output:


HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.18.12)
HP Device Manager ver. 15.0

error: Unable to load DBus libraries. Please check your installation and
try again.
error: Please upgrade your python installation to the latest available


I have Python v3.7 installed, which should be fine since the script
calls for python3 (which links to python3.7 on my machine).  I don't
know what it wants installed as far as DBus is concerned.

Primarily, what I need is to check ink levels and general status, and
that does work from the command line, but it would be more convenient if
hp-toolbox worked, giving me GUI access to all of its functionality.

Any help will be appreciated.
