It looks like HPLIP might be what you need (you'd need to download the tarball) BUT I am really not sure - hopefully someone who knows will answer......

As Oblivious said, you would need to try HPLIP. See this thread:


If you just wanted to print, and weren't worried about scanner/copier, you could try using hpijs as the driver. Sometimes, if the printer you have isn't listed, it will work with another printer that is close. e.g. if the OfficeJet5600 is listed, try that.

Hi grauweisses
If you only want printing there is a HPIJS pet packaqge available. here .
If you want scanning as well then I suggest the you look at the threads here and here regarding HPLIP.

The learning curve may be steep but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
You just have to pass the occasional oncoming train to get there.
