I guess it would, even though I just tried and replacing the code of the
faulty function by the one from 3.12.10a (see attached patch).

I guess that the patch could be applied to the current version, as an
alternative to waiting for the latest upstream to propagate.

AFAIU, in the current 3.12.6-3, if one removes ~/.hplip, the first execution of hp-toolbox will
succeed (and write a latest_available_version = 3.12.10a Public
Release... in ~/.hplip/hplip.conf), but the next execution will then

I'm tempted to raising the severity to important. Until upstream's
current version changes to a pure digit-based version, users may
experience the same problem :-/

What do you think ?

Hope this helps.
