I want to install an HP LaserJet Pro M1536 Multifunction Printer on macOS 10.15 Catalina. The printer already works with AirPrint. I'm attempting to setup the scanner.

I can not find .dmg, only HP Easy Start.app, e.g. Apple Store. HP Smart...

Where could I find simple dmg file?

Note this site: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201465 where it did show previously scanning not supported.

Additional question, if no dmg, downloading HP Smart, will scanner work?

  • I would have questioned the OP's intent rather than assume "11.1" means El Capitan, rather than Big Sur.

    As old as that printer is I seriously doubt you'll find any HP Scan software that will work with that model under macOS Catalina; however you might be able to get the macOS built-in app Image Capture to detect the device and scan from it. I had to do that on an older HP Scanner, but that was in macOS High Sierra. Apr 11 at 17:42

    I'm not sure at all what your AppleID or phone number has to do with it. support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/… "HP Easy Start is the new way to set up your HP printer and prepare your Mac for printing. HP Easy Start will locate and install the latest software for your printer and then guide you through printer setup." You have yet to make it clear why you consider that only a .dmg file would be acceptable.

HP does NOT have a method to install drivers, a simple dmg file. One MUST use app from Apple store; hence must have an AppleId.
