Ubuntu – How to install HP P1102W printer driver

drivershpprintingsoftware installation

Trying to install drivers for a HP P1100W on Ubuntu 12.04.

The printer was recognized as soon as I hooked it up. I'm using the USB cable.

I followed the directions of this question
working with command hp-plugin for printer

and I get the message that I now need the "HP-Plugin.

Also, how do I get rid of all the test prints that are still spooled? There is no clear button.

    Go to the hplip support page

    Click download hplip

    Go to Downloads or wherever it was saved and run the script, for example

    sh hplip-3.14.10.run
    

    (depending on the version - use ls to see it in the terminal)

    Follow directions in your terminal.
